Ajax Application Examples
« on: May 22, 2008, 11:16:14 AM »
Any of you guys do any significant Ajax type stuff in your apps? Our apps are becoming a bit more sophisticated and we've been utilizing more dynamic code lately and I want to try and find some PetStore/Pattern type apps that show good ways to do some of these things. Books with good examples would help too.

I've been reverse engineering features on sites that I've like but I'd like to get good examples of how other folks are doing things. Right now we're just using basic stuff out of the prototype library.

We're also looking into building a highly modular mash-up sort of application that utilizes our own services but can be customized easily for multiple customers (and integrated with other services) and I'm thinking Ajaxy stuff is pretty much going to be a necessity.

That's a CMS I'm building that uses a ton of AJAX.  Ignore the current menu setup... that's being rewritten.  But once you login, go to Editing Options and select "Content" or "News".  Either will give you a good idea of how it's used. 

The JS is in the source and I can show you the PHP stuff if you care.

Oh, and the big green box at the bottom is my debug view... you can ignore that too.

Ober I see you use famfamfam icons. Us too.

I'll poke around a bit. In general though, how are you doing your content swapping? Just by replacing div contents with a generated page or are you parsing xml responses?

Just replacing div contents.  I pull the data straight out of the DB... no XML involved.

And yeah... I love that icon set.  :)
