The initial description is not binding on what the scope of work is. We will discuss the full scope of work under an NDA agreement.
We want to build a website that is a directory of web-pages. Web-pages can be accessed by clicking on thumbnails previously stored. Web pages directory can be organized into private, semi-private, and public directories. Each directory will have a "gardener" (kind of like a moderator for discussion threads) who normally would be the user who initially started the directory. The project requires very few different pages.
2) OS, Hardware
What we have. A VPS host with 1024MG RAM, and 11 virtual processors. The OS is Debian 6.0.5. The system is set up for development and has gcc, g++, php, perl, python already installed. We will install anything else you might need.
3) Specialized software
We have a working copy of a C++ utility which can generate a web-page snap shot in as little as 2-3 seconds if a page loads quickly (taking only about 1 second for processing, the rest is spent waiting for a page to load.) Either "convert" or "mogrify" from imagemagick will be used to post-process a full image into thumbnails. We have installed the latest copy of Drupal CMS. If you want to propose use of a different framework you'd better have some really good reasons for it.
4) Your skills
You have to be skilled in using Drupal and have intimate knowledge of all the different modules available for it. We are NOT interested in developing software which is already freely available (or available for a small price).
You have to be knowledgeable about Twitter, Linkedin, Facebook, Google+ APIs to be able to obtain information about followers, contacts, friends, cirles and to send messages as well post to those services.
5) General things we need to do
a) The website has to have a textbox (similar to how a lot of websites have a search textbox on top) on top which would allow an user to add 1 or more webpage links for processing.
b) The website also will need an API to allow a browser plugin, toolbar to send and receive links and images.
c) Display thumbnails in a grid, 3-7 in a row, with an infinite scroll. This is similar to how [url removed, login to view] does this.
d) An user must be able to reposition different thumbnails according to his liking. Download "Opera" browser and take a look at how dragging and dropping thumbnails into different positions is done.
e) The site also will be a able to a google/bing search with certain keywords and extract some links without an user actually invoking the search directly.
6) Bidding process
1) Bids which exceed the budget will be IGNORED.
2) Bids with unrealistic time estimates will also be IGNORED.
Only a COMPLETE job will be paid for. So, ask questions if you do NOT understand what is involved. [url removed, login to view] states that a milestone should be released IF and ONLY IF we are satisfied with the work.
Only ONE milestone is acceptable, that is for the COMPLETE site. Any bids with partial milestones will
be IGNORED, if simply for failing to carefully read the description.
The job is COMPLETE when it works on OUR site.
The winning bidder will be given access to an account on our system to do the work. Incomplete work is NOT acceptable. It is a fixed cost, "no cure, no pay" job. If you are not confident that you can get this job done then do NOT bid. We will IGNORE all bids which call for partial milestones. A partially done web-site is worthless.
If you have completed the project by the end, you will be paid for your work. If you simply waste time and do not complete the job you will NOT be paid.
You have to have a reputation for completing your work on this site.
You have to explain beforehand what you intend to do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
