Custom TLS Target Publisher

Post by Mrk » Sat Jun 15, 2019 4:43 pm

Hi folks,

Interested in feedback on my online target publishing tool. My team and I have been using it for some time without issue, so I thought I'd share it publicly for others to use. Any comments/recommended improvements are appreciated - please see link below.

http://www.tlstargets.com/

Features include:
  • Load custom logo image
  • Square or circular targets
  • Custom target number sequence
  • Editable text
  • All elements can be moved/resized/rotated via a simple drag & drop UI

Looks like a good idea, thanks for sharing.

The link seems broken though

Compatition is always good.

Yours looks pretty much like "Target Mill" which runs about $30.

How will you separate yourself from them?

Thanks for putting this out?

Thanks for flagging the broken link...only a DNS mixup. All sorted now :oops:

I just had a look at Target Mill...looks like a great tool. I like that you can print directly from the app, rather than exporting PDF. I guess the major difference here is that mine is web-based and free. Though it seems that Target Mill is looking after the community using a freemium offering, with serialized targets locked in the free app.

Before using the web app, we had been using a basic word file target supplied with our RTC360 - what I based TLS Target on. But a word file isn't that handy when you're working remotely and run out of targets, which should never happen with proper planning of course :roll:

One of our surveyors actually color-scans the web-app on the ipad itself and acquires the virtual target that way :lol:

Appreciate the feedback.

Always nice to see something that is free. Maybe consider adding a donation button or two? Just in case someone wants to support you?

Thanks Gordon, I'll look into it.

Also wondering if it's worth adding an option for double sided targets for windows? I use these targets quite often for internal/external scans.

Huge thanks to the community for such great feedback.

I've added the below features to enhance usability:
  • Double sided targets (simply duplicates each page on export).
  • Triple digit target numbers for large jobs.
  • Reformatted to be responsive on mobile screens.
Also please note that:
  • While there are upload and download buttons, no actual data transfer is occurring. All functions occur on client-side and no data is being harvested for any purpose.
  • Large target files (50+ pages) should be exported in batches to limit file sizes for your printer.

Thanks again for all your suggestions, please keep them coming :like:
