    I love the design. But, why no education field?

      Heya Dan.

      That is a really good point...

      Haha, you look at a design for weeks on end, and you miss the blindingly obvious!

      I'll be sure to add that in the next iteration.

      Does anyone is looking to that? I don't even put it in my resume... New clients are looking for previous experience plus portfolio...

        Heya Dawid,

        For client work, I'd agree education is not really a thing worth putting down, but for resumes in the traditional sense (i.e. seeking employment) it can be important.

        For our technical hires, I certainly want to know if someone has been university educated or self taught (not that it makes a difference, but its interesting to see the self-teachers who have taken the time to absorb all the fundamental theory etc).

        I'd like to point to both of you that you are coming from a VERY designer orientated thinking. If tool is for the masses, education is HUGE.

    Really straightforward workflow but it would be nice to see examples of the final product prior to inputting info or selecting a template.

      Mhm, actually that is a good call.

      I was thinking of maybe doing a video - i.e. A very quick over-view of using the app, and then showcasing the outputs? But possibly that's a bit overkill for something so simple.

      Or, perhaps it makes more sense, on the introduction screen at the top, to just have a text link: "Here's an example"

      Thoughts?

        I don't think it has to be anything fancy. A simple graphic that shows the general layout would be enough.

        Sorry about the late reply, BTW. DN doesn't do a great job of letting you know someone replied to your comment.

    Looks very nice! The trouble of these tools is that you cannot save everything. So if you want to change something, or update your CV than you have to fill everything in again.

      Heya Ymar,

      Glad you're digging it!

      Re: editing - if you click the "Edit this page" link down the bottom of the output, you can customise the page structure, design, imagery, text etc.

      The whole shebang :)

      Caveat though: you'll need to sign up to Qwilr itself.

    This is great, was literally looking for this exact thing last night for my wife.

      Hiya Daniel,

      Ew thanks for the tip off!

      Weird, I've just tested it on Chrome in OSX and it works 100%.

      What version of Chrome are you rockin? (And do you have any special security settings turned on?)

        Not getting the error today. No apparent change in configuration on my side.

        ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

          Ha, yah as soon as the error happened I pinged our dev team (it was evening time here in Sydney) - but we couldn't reproduce either.

          We've just migrated some of our (Qwilr) infrastructure, so possibly some teething issues there.

          Browser refresh > QED > stuff works #technology :)

    The ease of use is great! Just a heads up. The end product doesn't respond well to the use of apostrophes in the text fields.

      Gah - thanks for the bug heads up.

      I imagine there's a sting interpolation problem, will check it out now.
