Develop a Microsoft Word Add-In

Contest Brief

I'd like an add-in developed for Microsoft Word (2013 & 2007 a must, ideally supporting 2007 & 2003), coded in C# using the standard visual studio tools for office libraries. Ideally I'd like a git / mercurial repo with the full source commit history.

The most basic version of the add-in needs to:
- Retrieve some JSON data from a URL, [url removed, login to view]
- Present a list of the keys in a pop-out or docked window in the main Word window.

e.g.

name
address
[url removed, login to view]
[url removed, login to view]
[url removed, login to view]
cars
-- make
-- age

- Allow a user to drag and drop the keys from the pop-out/docked window into the main document and insert the key text where dropped.

- Finally a bonus would be to be able to drag the cars array key onto the document and have a table created with headers of the internal keys (make & age), and a single row with the first set of values.

e.g.
-----------------
| Make | Age |
| BMW| 4 |
-----------------

This may well lead into more development in the future as I'm keen on building out more functionality.

Please get in touch if you have need clarification or have any questions.

Thanks!

      The plugin should be able to cope with various json formats, I've just provided an example of the sort of structures we need to deal with. I'm happy to receive an add-in that just works off the sample for now as long as the json parsing is fairly well abstracted. Thanks.

      You can use add-in-express if the add-in is fully self contained, with no third party installation required. e.g. Installing an add-in-express dll or add-in. Thanks

    Microsoft Word (2003 & 2007) are not supported by Microsoft anymore. Is this important?
