  • latexcv

    :necktie: A collection of cv and resume templates written in LaTeX. Leave an issue if your language is not supported!

    Project mention: Resume Spacing | /r/LaTeX | 2023-02-03

    I generally avoid sending Word documents. IMO scanning PDFs is nowadays good enough to deal with LaTeX-generated PDFs. And when it comes to the templates... Personally I use LaTeX generated. Some time ago I was using LibreOffice but updating it was not pleasant. I wanted to have more fancy CV and store the source in GIT. I have chosen Sidebar Left from this repo: https://github.com/jankapunkt/latexcv and I am generally satisfied, but I also respect the above approach.

  • DND-5e-LaTeX-Template

    LaTeX package to typeset material for the fifth edition of the "world's greatest roleplaying game".

    Project mention: LaTeX for publishing tabletop role-playing games | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-09-17

    > Creating a theme for tabletop role-playing games would take some elbow grease

    The article links to several, including a convincing reproduction of basic Wizards of the Coast house style for D&D 5E:


    Here's another 5E one with additional sidebar styles:


    Also 5E-inspired, with a template for card accessories:


    A 5E-compatible character sheet:


    CTAN also has packages for Basic D&D-inspired typesetting (rpg-module, also linked from the article), GURPS (gurps), generic hex boards (hexboard), and wargame hex boards with counters (wargame).

    There are also indie TTRPGs that've shipped using custom LaTeX templates; this one has CC-BY licensed source: https://github.com/ludus-leonis/nipajin

    And the blog author's own, with a more restrictive CC-NC-SA license: https://github.com/Vladar4/itdr

    From personal experience, the biggest struggle is non-rectangular text wrapping around images.

    Project mention: Looking for Business Analyst role after graduation and applied like crazy (300+), I got a few interviews and no offer. Would someone be able to give me some advice on improving my CV? | /r/UKJobs | 2023-03-23

    Beyond that, you could do better on the layout. If you're familiar with LaTeX, it may be worth the investment to create a resume using it. Overleaf has some great templates, they're all free, and in general I found that my response rate improved a lot when I ditched the MS Word appearance for something cleaner like the Russell template.
