Write a script to process a list of PDF URLs

I frequently have a list of URLs to single page PDF documents that have labels on them that only take up half the A4 page. I want a script that will download all the pages, crop them and export them as 2 labels per page.


1) Download list of PDFs (textarea is a good start but ideally this can be a link to a txt file that can also be passed through a query string to the page, e.g. [url removed, login to view] )

2) Crop the PDFs (either to the nearest transparent pixel or just cut the page in half)

3) Merge the half pages into a single page (i.e. page 1 includes the first and the second label).

4) Export into a single PDF (12 URLs would become a 6 page PDF).

Needs to be web based or cross platform. I have hosting that I can host it on.
