Main Controller

This project involved creating large quantities of similar images in different sizes. The file names of these images included the specific size in the form of a keyword that would need to match the actual file dimensions. The client supplied a spreadsheet with the required file names and sizes.

Using the JavaScript library Tabletop.js to read the data from Google Sheets, I created a filename validator to check if the file names matched the corresponding file sizes.

This was built using Laravel as the CMS and React for the front-end. I was hired to help the lead developer on this project to create JavaScript animations using the GreenSock library and to create additional pages while incorporating them into the already established back-end.
