Project Description

We need multiplatform (windows,linux,macos) C++ application which have this requirements:

It needs to work as local server and get commands from browser via ajax, to listen on some port, for example localhost:/9000 and to have api for:

/getlocalprinters

/setdefaultprinter

/getprinterparameters (paper size etc)

/listprintjobs

/deleteprintjob

/print

etc

Also, i need to have installers for each OS, which i would downoload when my app detects that app is not installed on OS, also via some ajax request. When app is installed it should take over all settings for printers on OS, and setting would be on webpage. App should detect printer with no drivers, and give option to install drivers also from webpage. Everything must happen on webpage

app should have option to receive requests via network also (not only localhost), to work as google cloud print, but settings for everything must be in web browser via api, or via own app server - so app should not have any GUI except html/javascript on web browser.

App should have database of drivers for big number of thermal printers, or some way to find them on internet and install them with no user actions required, and if it can't find driver it should ask on webpage to upload drivers.

App should have API for adding making module for direct communication with printer without drivers.

It is very important to app must be very consistent and stable in printing receipts.

We need only serious offers, please don't bid if you are not professional with experience.

Thank you for your time and best regards.

P.S. Sorry for bad English.
