Cross-Platform PDF Fetch & Print App

Paid on delivery
I'm seeking a proficient Python or nodeJS developer to construct a cross-platform desktop app for Windows, Mac, and Linux. The main functionality needed is to fetch and print PDFs from a given endpoint. The app should have a Graphical User Interface (GUI), thus requiring the developer to have: • Strong expertise in Python or nodeJS • Proficiency in developing GUI applications • Understanding and experience with cross-platform development • Knowledge of handling PDF files and printers • Familiarity with interacting with API calls We need the source code (on github) and pipelines setup to build windows EXEs as well as Linux binaries. The app has a preshared url and uuid that identifies the printer, and only one printer is setup per uuid. The uuid is used to fetch a list of IDs from the server: (url/gxweb/getPrinterItems?printer_secret_key=uuid) : [45, 46] which is then in turn used to fetch the PDF: (url/gxweb/getPrinterItem?printer_secret_key=uuid&printer_item=45) : pdf binary and then the item is marked as (url/gxweb/updatePrinterItem?printer_secret_key=uuid&printer_item=45&status=done) : true statuses available: 'scheduled' : in this state it will appear in the PrinterItems list 'fetched': interim state showing it was fetched (not necessarily needed) 'error': error state if printout failed 'done': success state if the print seems to have worked. Some screen maybe showing a log might be handy for debugging and being able to check if it is working, but I am open to design suggestions. In my mind this is a system tray app that runs on windows, mac and linux, and since the only package I could quickly find that allow pdf to printer is a nodejs package, I am thinking this is an electron app. If you want to use another tech stack just check in. We use python and javascript mostly, with a couple of small new items in rust... I would not want to deviate from our known tech unless there is a good reason.

Hello, I’ve honed my skills in Python and Javascript - exactly what you’re looking for. My expertise extends to building GUI applications, handling PDF files and API calls with ease. Moreover, my familiarity with the well-regarded nodeJS package would make a transition to designing your app on Electron seamless. However, I'm open to exploring other tech stacks if you feel they’d be more suitable. What sets me apart from others is my ceaseless dedication to client satisfaction. Having served more than 500 satisfied clients in different sectors over the years, I prioritize delivering high-quality work on time and maintaining absolute confidentiality. Given the need for attention to detail in your project — fetching PDFs from your server's endpoint and handling multiple printer status updates—I’m confident that with my mix of technical skills and reliability, I can successfully develop your desired app while providing any needed post-implementation support.
