HTML5 (history) timeline creation web app



We're a London based group of designers, historians and consultants who want a prototype (history) timeline creation web app. Most of us are more at ease with print and classrooms; this is our first foray into creating online / web products and our first job on elance.

In testing, the web app is for private use, but will invite users after testing

Our ideal is a web app that works from any browser, on desktop, tablet or mobile, coded in pure HTML5. It is our understanding that HTML5 makes more sense to work with for cross-browser support today and will be used more and more across the internet / apps in the next few years. Also, with HTML5 we can write a minimal web version, then apply to dedicated apps later.

We are aware of cross-browser limits of HTML5. If, while reviewing the full brief, you think another language is more appropriate or you see another way to aid file size, performance, loading or the project in general etc. please say so.

The most important and common editing features:

add / edit images & text

calendar & timer functions

adjust image / text colours

adjust image / text opacity

resize image / text

move image / text

save image / text

collapsible menus

add html to fixed size areas

apply select graphics to layers

zoom function


Side menus: Users may edit approx 12-15 collapsible menus.

Export to oversize PDF

We require the app to export to a high resolution print ready PDF with crop marks and other print info. This PDF has oversize dimensions w:h approx 7:1

Export to HTML

We require the app to export projects to HTML code to add to other web pages.

There are, of course, several other features which will be explained in the full brief.

Pros: The entire project is on paper right now. Every aspect is clear in logic. It has taken us many weeks to decide on our core concepts, features and scalability - we are ready to clarify if you have questions.

This project can be cleared in milestones; not every feature we have in mind is necessary for our prototype. It may well be that we decide to have more or less than what appears in the full brief.

Cons: There is a way of creating and displaying our calendars which deviates from normal online calendars, but have been advised that it will be simple to implement

The oversize dimensions may be a hurdle for file sizes and loading.

Many features have similarities to those in existing web apps and services, but it has never been implemented in this combination.

We shall only consider the following freelancers:

Must have an publicly viewable online portfolio proving competent and relevant HTML5 programming skills backed by at least 3 written and verifiable independent references. All references must be unrelated to you by blood or by marriage. We will check references.

Must be competent in speaking, reading and writing English

Must be able to communicate via Skype @ approx 48 hr notice

Must reply to e-mails in a timely fashion

Must be willing supply regular updates to the project (perhaps 2-3 x weekly?)

Must sign worldwide, lifetime NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement)

Must ensure all code and source files are easy to read by another programmer / designer.

Must sign an exclusive release form for all work carried out, including all code, passwords and source files

Must quote in either US dollars($) or GBP pounds (£)

Must quote by the entire brief, not per hour

What now? Send us your online profile and thoughts on how this job should proceed. Then we'll check you out and contact you with the full spec via Skype and e-mail. The aim is to confirm a contract and get you started ASAP.

Our provisional deadline is late May - mid June 2013; our budget for the prototype is £[url removed, login to view] +. Once we have an overview of time sheets, milestones, feasibility and agreed features, this figure and deadline date may be revised as we see fit. Price will never be an issue, only quality and professionalism.
