The Europass CV helps users to present their skills and qualifications effectively and clearly. Any user can create a CV online here.

The Europass Parser Javascript Library gives the possibility to developers to parse quickly into their HTML forms a Europass PDF+XML CV created from users through the Europass site.

Getting Started

  • europass-config.js includes all the available Europass Schema keys than can be parsed into an html form. For example in the following line
    { 'original': 'SkillsPassport.LearnerInfo.Identification.PersonName.FirstName', 'replace': 'name', 'enabled': true},  
    • The key original indicates the absolute path to the Europass CV JSON Schema in dot annotation style
    • The key replace is the name you have declared in the specific input filed of yout own HTML form
    • The key enabled gives extra flexibility to the developer in case a form field should not be populated from Europass CV data.
  • europass-parser.js is the library that takes as input the configuration file and fills the html elements.


Some sections, such as Work Experience, Education, Achievemts, Languages, Skills, have more than one Object inside. For these sections, the corresponing HTML elements need to be populated by the developer for the Europass Parser to be able to fill them.

The events below inform the developer of the number of Objects for each Section that exists inside Europass CV data.

  • Work Experience records 'work_length'
  • Education records 'education_length'
  • Achievements records 'achievements_length'
  • Mother tongues records 'mother_tongues_length'
  • Foreign languages records 'foreign_languages'
  • Driving licenses records 'driving_length'

For these sections europass-config.js contains an extra key the suffix

{ 'original': 'SkillsPassport.LearnerInfo.WorkExperience.Position.Label', 'replace': 'work_experience_title', 'suffix': '_', 'enabled': true}  


document.addEventListener('work_length', function (event) {  
 var number_of_work_experiences = event.detail;  
  Create here the corresponding html fields  

The suffix should be used as follows

<input name="work_experience_title"> </input>  
<!-- The html below should be generated from the developer if does not already exists. -->  
<input name="work_experience_title_1"> </input>

This way the Europass Parser Javascript Library finds the available fields to fill in.

all the html elements that are to be fulfilled from the library must at least be created at the time when the event is fired.

Finished parsing event.
