Build a PDF Mail merge website using Ruby on Rails

-- Project brief --

Create an online tool in Ruby on Rails that allows a user to upload a PDF template (see attached file - [url removed, login to view]) and a CSV spreadsheet (see attached file - [url removed, login to view]) and then the site produces a zipped file containing the mail-merged values in multiple PDF files. The front end will use the Zurb Foundation 5 CSS framework.

Functionality to include the following:

* Upload PDF template with form fields

* Upload CSV or XLS file containing data columns to map to form fields

* Specify a file output naming convention using CSV data eg. {id}[url removed, login to view]

* Zip files for delivery

* Produce download link

* Use CSS Framework - Foundation 5

* Allow a test file to be generated from the uploaded docs before final merge

* Heroku webserver (my account)

* Codebase to be managed in Github

-- Project notes --

I've looked at Flying Saucer (itext) as a suitable PDF engine ([url removed, login to view]) to create the merged PDF files, but open to suggestions for a better solution. May require experience with JRuby in this case as it is a ported library from Java.
