Ok this looks lke your everyday question however here's the catch.
This project has changed dramatically recently.
Used to be a 2 app based project. Now its a one app based project.
The project should now send data to a mysql database (id, gender, scene, image(in base 64format)).
Should generate a url with the generated id.
Should be able to retrieve the information from the database based on that id.
The app is like an editor. You select an option, take a picture and select another option
so basically ill end up with 4 variables
variable 1 is the id for the row that should be unique enough.
variable 2 is a number (0 or 1)
variable 3 is another number (0 to 7)
variable 4 is a base64 string
--the end result on submit will be a link shareable trough facebook or other social service.
This shuld enable the app to read on load that information... I'm a bit unclear as to how but the idea is that the app shares it as a url
when people click it they're directed to the app again and the same url contains the generated id that applies to a row in the database.
If any of you have an idea about this let me know please.
Q - why didn't I save the image ?
A - I don't want to use storage at all for this project
Uppon further re-thinking this has become a single app provided I manage to solve some issues I'm working on at the moment.
Thanx — for all the invaluable help so far. I know Ive been annoying up to a point but when the project is done you'll have helped build something new that in turn wil become a new tutorial for our comunity.
Here's a capx and a sample placed on my server.
test page on my server (not the official server)
capx for checking
Any and all the help is greatly appreciated. I'm at a fuzzy-brain-block at the moment and ideas may help clear it up.
Here goes to you all who helped me finish this product successfully.
The product is now live ( here )
Special thanks to:
arrall for being just awesome.
Ashley for making this great product.
ArcadEd for the tutorials.
lucid because spriter is just awesome one of the best inversions I ever made beides Construct2.
What the final product is.
This is a free animated personalized social sharable postcard maker.
This one is localized to the programs produced the station, however when I make my (first) tutorial I'll be using the "generic" file so people can create their own and probably improve uppon it.
What the final webapp does:
- It has an animated front screen with music.
-- that screen has male,female selection buttons and a mute/play button for the music.
- has a picture capture setup screeen where you frame your face on the given space and take the snapshot.
- this goes to a simple icon menu that lets you choose a program roster to be a part on.
- uppon sharing via twitter or facebook this app will also save the picture and related data to a server and give out a custom coded random number/letter id whithin a link which will direct the user to a finished postcard with the settings all set. This postcard includes a button that will in turn return a user to the main webapp site with the editing functions cleared so they can make their own postcard.
