A browser based badge creator for EventBrite - built with jquery mobile
|README||Edited README via GitHub|
About I created this little app for the ATT Hackathon at the PayPal HQ in Aug 2011. We had 400 people registered and advance printing of badges always causes confusion. So I created this in jQuery Mobile, and ran it on my Laptop Safari browser. The label printer was the DYMO 450 and worked like a charm. I went with the largest packing labels which double as badges. Since iPad AIR printing is limited on supported printers, I couldn't use that, but maybe in the future. Everything is hardcoded including the logos, title of event and date. Also the event id i use to retrieve the attendee list from event brite is hard coded. I imagine this could all be dynamic with a little work. Also, this only ran in Safari, other browsers where throwing errors. Lastly, the attendee data is cached locally in the browser, adding a refresh button would be great for last minute registrants. Because once it's cached, it doesn't hit the event brite server again. Fork Away!
