A web page to quickly create and print signs using a common design.
A web service to quickly create and print signs using a common design.
Especially useful for events.
You might find it useful in the following scenarios:
* You need to set up an event where visitors need signs to point them around.
* You often need to change some signs in your organization.
* You're bored in the Fachschaftsbüro.
What you need:
* A printer on premise.
* Some kind of server, preferrably running a flavor of Linux, capable of printing
on said printer via lpd. A RaspberryPi would suffice, even if it's slow.
* Web clients of any type being able to connect to said server.
* The knowledge to modify a LaTeX template to fit your organizations design.
After you put in the initial work of setting this up, you'll have a service
where everyone on your team can quickly create a new sign as soon as they see a
need for it (provided they've got a mobile web client) just by typing a headline
and some text, selecting or uploading an image -- and by the time they arrive at
the printer, the sign is already printed and ready to be posted on the wall. All
while heeding the event's design.
> This script frees the event organisators of the responsibility to pre-think
> all the details of sign-making. Instead, this part can simply be delegated to
> the helpers who are setting up the event by showing them the web frontend of
> this tool.
