Recently, I’ve been working on developing a software application called QuickPDF that aims to assist designers in creating newspaper layouts more efficiently.
The initial inspiration for this project came when I visited my father’s friend’s office. He owns a newspaper company and had requested a newspaper design from a designer, but due to an overwhelming workload, the designer couldn’t fulfill the request on time. It turned out that the designer had taken on multiple projects from different clients to increase their earnings. However, designing PDFs was time-consuming, leading to delays. This got me thinking: why not create a software solution that could streamline the process of building newspaper PDFs?
Excited by the idea, I began brainstorming software features that could effectively reduce the time required for creating newspaper layouts. Unfortunately, due to some personal issues, I initially abandoned the project, not taking it as seriously as I should have. However, after the passing of my mother and with a renewed sense of determination, I made the decision to dive back into the project.
Excited by this discovery, I commenced work on the project. However, I encountered an issue with drag and drop functionality in Tauri JS. I raised an issue on the Tauri GitHub repository, which was acknowledged as a bug. Unfortunately, I didn’t receive a solution for three days, prompting me to consider developing the application using Electron.js instead.
