Updated

The job is to implement: - front-end of a new website that aggregates scientific articles ("papers") from different journals - back-end that pulls data from existing mysql DB, no inserts/updates; NO frameworks, only plain Python; running on Ubuntu Linux + WSGI server - fulltext search functionality, with the use of existing search engine, like Apache Solr. Pages to be developed: - Home: list of most recent papers + Twitter box, simple stats, other minor stuff - Paper: basic info + contents of a given paper (displayed as PDFs embedded in the web page + fullscreen view), journal box (example other papers from the same journal), related papers box (example other papers with similar contents) - Journal: basic info + paginated list of all papers in a given journal - Papers List: paginated list of all papers in the system, by time - Journals List: paginated list of all journals, by name - Search: parameters and results of fulltext search - static pages, empty, only linked from the menu: About, Add Journal MySQL database for the website already exists and will be provided as an SQL dump (<1 GB), so DB work will consist mainly of pulling data from DB, no inserts/updates (DB updates will happen in the background, out of scope of this job). Only the DB schema may require slight extensions as a part of this job - you will record all changes in an .sql file for future replay by me on my own copy of the data. NO users, no registration/logging, no cookies, no web forms except search. Other notes: - PDF view of an article can rely on a PDF plugin in the browser, but it would be good to fall back on another tool when the plugin is missing. - For fulltext search, you will have to extract raw text from PDF files. I will provide you with a list of available tools and you'll have to pick the best one for this task. - In the backend, you can use all standard Python packages and other popular libraries from PyPi (mysqld, ...), but NO big frameworks (the website will use custom framework in the future). - In the frontend, you can use a javascript library, like jQuery; I might also agree on a framework like Bootstrap, but this must be justified. - Please say what WSGI server and what search engine you'd like to use. - For WSGI, I prefer Python-native solutions (no Apache). The job will be done in two phases: 1) Everything except search and PDF view on the Paper page. 2) Search + PDF view. 50% of the total price will be paid after phase 1, the rest at the end. Please indicate what time you need for each phase. Delivery after each phase: 1) you show me how the website works on your server and make any necessary fixes 2) you give me the code and guidelines, so that I can run it successfully on my own computer or server (Ubuntu box) Besides programming skills in Python/MySql/HTML/CSS, the developer must have basic graphic skills to come up with a decent website appearance on his own. There is a color palette already in place. There is also a draft design, but incomplete. I expect the ultimate appearance to be clean and simple. When replying to this offer: - please give me links to websites built by you - show me samples of your Python code from 2-3 different projects, 100 lines each
