Dear Mentors and WordPress community,

I am  a University student from Hungary and I am about to attend to GSoC. I
am motivated to create something new and usefull for the community.

This is my idea in a nutshell:
I think editing templates and basic layouts of a WordPress site can be a
hard task for an average user who doesn't know too much about webdesign. So
I would like to create an Interactive Drag & Drop Content Editor (something
like this: http://wordpress.org/plugins/plugnedit/), but of course a much
more professional one. According to my idea, the user would be able to
placing, re-scaling, dragging & dropping the blocks of content. Also it
would contain a property editor, which could handle css and other things as
well. I am also planing to design some pre-prepared elements (blocks of
content), which you can drag right into the site as a new block from an
editor panel. For the first time the default layout would be metro styled
and basically responsive and scalable. This project could be a WordPress
plugin or the part of WordPress it self. It depends on the requirements. I
am planing to use GSAP (http://www.greensock.com/gsap-js/) for animations
and the newest technologies based on HTML5, JS, CSS, PHP and MySQL.

I think the Word Press community would appreciate a plugin like this.
Mentors, please let me know if you and the community are interested in my

If you would like to know more about me please send me a private message or
reply to this one. Also, I can show you some of my previous works (some of
them is related to WordPress :D).

I hope you will be interested in my project and thanks for your reply in

Best regards,
