Small Laravel 4 app – Missing Pet Flyer generator

I decided to test out some new composer packages using Laravel 4.

The first package that I wanted to test was Intervention Image Class located at http://intervention.olivervogel.net/image.

It allows you to operate with images and do many common operations on images such as :

  • Resizing
  • Cropping
  • Embedding other images
  • Writing text
  • Putting shapes and objects on the canvas
  • Saving images in different formats
So to put those features to test I have created a small application for pet owners. It is a missing pet poster maker. It allows you to quickly create a poster with a picture of your pet and some text that is usually put on such posters.

The application is at

http://missingpetflyer.com

It uses the above mentioned package for image processing and the following JS libraries :

The structure for an app like this could easily be used for all kinds of image generators. If you want the source I will make it public.

UPDATE:

The source code has been published: https://github.com/msurguy/missingpetflyer

Enjoy and hopefully you will not need to use this app!
