A Ruby-based application to automate the lengthy steps for writing and dating cover letters and keep track of companies and jobs you've applied to.
Generate PDFs from Libre Office .odt templates on the fly and save a copy of the job posting, all without ever having to leave your terminal!
The only thing Resgen doesn't do for you is actually send the resume (but with some minor tweaks, it could do that, too!)
How it works:
(It would work on 32-bit too, I just didn't include the needed drivers to support it, if you are using 32-bit, let me know and support will be added. If you're unsure whether or not your OS is 64/32-bit, it is probably 64-bit.)
Linux/Mac users: Using RVM is highly recommended; it allows you to install Ruby in a virtual sense and doesn't rely upon or mess with the Ruby already bundled with your operating system. (no root/sudo required for gem installs, too!)
bash curl -sSL https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stableSee what verion of Ruby you're running:
bash rvm currentIf you're between v2.4 and v2.6.5, you're ready for Resgen!
If you need OS-specific instructions, see the compatible operating systems above for links to detailed steps.
git clone https://github.com/angela-d/resgen.git && cd resgen && ruby resgen
Companion applications you need installed in order for Resgen to work.
*the Selenium webdriver for Firefox has depreciations that will have to be upgraded in order for Resgen to be compatible with Ruby v2.7; this is not a bug in Resgen's code.
The configuration for the application can be found at config.yml; modify the paths according to your environment.
The template.odt file has examples of the variables you'll need to add to your own cover letter in order for Resgen to automate for you. If you wish to add more fields, do so by modifying the
resgen loop in controller.rb and featuring the subsequent
[NEW_VARS] in your cover letter template.
For detailed instructions on adding additional fields, see the Custom Fields wiki
