Improvements

  • Added option to remove footer from awesomecv template (#182, #200).
  • Match font style of text for bibliography entries in awesomecv template.

Improvements

Small patch to resolve CRAN checks.

This patch release reduces the suggested package dependencies and adds further checks for an appropriate pandoc version.

This release adds the first HTML template to the package, using the improved templating system. The bibliography_entires() intermediate tibble output is rewritten, which now fully represents the CSL-JSON schema.

New templates

  • Added the vitae::markdowncv template, which is the markdown-cv template in various themes by Eliseo Papa (@elipapa). This is the first HTML template available in the package.

Improvements

  • Screenshot previews of the output formats can now be found in the README and in the documentation for each output format (#72).
  • Added tibble header to describe the output type in the document.
  • Rewrote bibliography_entries() intermediate data format to better follow the CSL-JSON schema. This includes csl_name() and csl_date() helpers for parsing and manipulating bibliography data.

Bug fixes

  • Fixed “na.character” entries resulting in bibliography_entries() that differ in the fields used (#147).
  • Fixed issue with underscores in moderncv template’s Twitter social and updated template to use https. You will need to delete your moderncv.sty file to get these updates (#117).
  • Fixed extra spacing in AwesomeCV when why input of detailed_entries() is not used (#144).
  • Specified minimum package versions for some more recent version dependencies.

This release makes substantial changes to how bibliographies included in a document. The package now uses pandoc-citeproc for handling bibliographies, rather than biblatex and the RefManageR package (partly due to CRAN archival). This is more consistent with how bibliographies are generated in other rmarkdown documents, and importantly it now allows custom CSL formats to be used (the most common request). Another advantage of this change is that non-bib citation formats can now be used (including YAML and CSL-JSON), and that changes to the table are directly applied to the resulting bibliography output.

The same bibliography_entires("/path/to/file.bib") interface applies, however the result may now differ slightly: 1. The column names and structure of the intermediate tibble has been changed to better align with the CSL-JSON format used by pandoc. This allows the modified contents of the tibble to be correctly reflected in the resulting output. 2. The default style of the bibliographies is now the APA CV format, which is similar but not identical to the previous default. This should be easier to customise now by providing a custom CSL (much like any other rmarkdown document).

Another advantage to moving to use pandoc-citeproc for bibliographies is that templates for other output formats (like HTML and Word) can now be added.

Breaking changes

  • The startlabel and endlabel arguments of bibliography_entries() are now defunct.
  • The column names and structure of the bibliography_entires() tibble have changed for consistency with the CSL-JSON format. The mapping of commonly used column names are:
    • bibtype -> type (note that the values are converted to CSL-JSON format)
    • key -> id
    • year -> issued
  • The default style of bibliography entries is now the APA CV format, which has been modified to match the order of the tibble, rather than the default of reverse chronological order. This bibliography style can be customised using the csl argument in the yaml front matter.

Improvements

  • bibliography_entries() are now handled using a pandoc’s cite-proc. This means that typical approaches for specifying CSL and other citeproc parameters will work as expected.
  • The citation_package and latex_engine options are now changeable by users for all output formats.
  • The why argument of detailed_entries() can now optionally be provided as a list of characters.

Bug fixes

  • This patch resolves knit issues introduced by tibble v3.0.0.

Bug fixes

Breaking changes

  • Simplified bibliography_entries entries by removing title and sorting arguments. The title can be included using markdown, and sorting now respects the order of the tibble created by the function.

Improvements

  • Added theme support for moderncv: classic, banking, oldstyle, fancy.
  • Added latexcv template using the classic theme.
  • Added docname to change the document name (@chrisumphlett, #42).
  • Added support for template specific formatting of surnames with surname.
  • Added Data sources for vitae vignette for using CV data from extermal sources.
  • Added surnames to bibliography_entries dataset.
  • Improved usage of dplyr verbs for manipulating and re-ordering outputs.
  • Extended skeleton template to include examples of using CV functions.
  • Bugfixes and documentation improvements.

First release of the package, containing: * Four CV templates: hyndman, twentyseconds, awesomecv, moderncv. * Three CV entries functions: detailed_entries(), brief_entries() and bibliography_entries(). * Two vignettes: Creating vitae templates and Introduction to vitae.
