Project Description

PLEASE NOTE THAT I WILL ONLY BE ACCEPTING BIDS FROM GITGIS FOR THIS PROJECT...

Hi Grzegorz,

Thanks again for your work on the analytics coding.

I have attached the 2 pages we want to try and create from a web interface. I have annotated them with sticky notes to give you an idea of what we are trying to achieve.

* Basically, the client will enter text into fields and choose a photograph and once they press "save" this document will be created as a PDF.

* Each block of text has a character limit so it fits within the design.

* They cannot define any formatting themselves -> it is all formatted by the code.

----------------

Although the attached PDF's relate to a specific client, ideally we would like to develop some sort of code-base where I can create either an XML schema or some sort of definition file that can be read to generate the form for a generic client's use.

In terms of interface, it could either:

* be a set of html fields that are filled and a small preview version of the pages are displayed; or

* a fullsize version of the page with the actual fields being editable text (the same way as Wix or those other HTML 5 "build your own site" programs operate) -> but remembering there is no need to write any sort of style editing or moving of blocks around by the client -> it is fixed to that position and style defined in the config file.

* I do not mind how the PDF is created, but we will need to be able to use custom fonts. I have root access to our server, so this is not an issue in terms of installation.
----------------

In the example provided, the specifications and colour swatches defined at the bottom of Page 2 are very much specific to this client's needs, so there would need to be a block that can be defined as "custom database gathered content" or something similar.

----------------

This project is to create a prototype which can be further extended to include database connectivity and load / reload functions if we feel this solution can work.

Initially I am happy for a prototype to show:

* editable fields using a textarea for editing function.

*A method of defining leading and kerning (letter spacing and line height).

* character count assigned to fields (this would require an ID attached to each text field)

* chosing an image from a library and placing it in the background
