My resume is built in React — it's compiled from a yaml file and rendered in an easily editable format.
Parts of the resume (like my email, phone number, etc) can also be clicked to toggle between different values.
This feature is largely for my own use — I like to prune my resume down differently for math/cs/academic jobs.
