We are looking for a Python developer with experience using the Kivy library for touchscreen GUIs. This contract is limited to a professional pass on the styling of the screen rather than programming the functionality. As with most Kivy applications, the styling is limited to a single document, while separate python scripts run each screen. The contract is expected to contain the following tasks:
- Refining background color, button color, progress bar styling, and other styling related elements.
- Arrangement of text fields and inputs to match our mock up designs
There is a possible need for animation effects for touch events, screen transitions, etc. This can be added to the scope (+ budget increase) if contractor can show an ability to complete work timely.
THIS CONTRACT IS AN IMMEDIATE NEED - CONTRACTOR WILL BE REQUIRED TO BEGIN IMMEDIATELY.
Expected length of contract: 2 weeks
Deadline for completed tasks: August 5th, 2016
An abbreviated Scope of Work is as follows:
Reorganize/replace screen layouts, menu tabs, and controls using graphics from our design team.
Help us anticipate issues that will arise using systems like the Raspberry Pi 3.
Expand functionality of the touch interface to include various settings for the machine control program
The machine control application is open-source, and well documented, so the learning curve is expected to be short.
Once hired, we will give you access to our Github repositories, and expanded scope of work that will better outline our deliverables, and schedule an introductory meeting to familiarize yourself with our development efforts.
