Custom Development of PHP Script for Dynamically Generating Book PDFs & Integration with e-Commerce Platform

-- I'm working on creating a website for a client that allows the user to create a customized children's book.

-- The user selects 5 stories, then customizes certain elements of the story's characters like gender and name.

-- Then the user goes through an e-commerce checkout process (VirtueMart/Joomla! at this point).

-- When the order has been submitted, information about the customized book is sent to a PHP script which then outputs a PDF of the 5 customized stories, which is sent to the printer.

-- Imagine that the e-commerce component outputs an XML or CSV file when the customer completes an order, then that XML/CSV file is passed on as a parameter/variable into the PHP script's main function.

-- I think the best way to implement this is by creating a HTML+CSS template for each page of each story that includes PHP variables which are dynamically filled in with the custom information from the user.

-- Then the PHP script generates a PDF from the HTML+CSS template that includes the customized stories.

-- What I would like as soon as possible from you is whether or not you think you can complete this task by May 15th or not. In any case, please create a timeline for this project so I can get an idea of how long it will take.

Here's information about the printer's API that we'll be working with:

The deliverable will be an IT solution that does the following automatically:

• Takes the variable information from a customer’s online book order as an input;

• Manipulates story file templates in a catalog database based on the order;

• Creates final file(s) necessary for our printing service to print and fulfill the order;

• Enters those files into the printing service’s workflow;

• Receives various relevant process updates/confirmations from the printing service’s system (i.e. printing completion, assembly completion, date/time shipped, tracking information, ETA) and records them with the order.
