In this tutorial I want to explain how we can build a DeviantArt Instant Search app which searches through all the most popular banner signatures ever submitted to the website. You can enter some search terms and the app will pull results to display after you finish typing. This is a really cool application for designers who are looking for inspiration, or even for people who love DeviantArt and want a better way to search.
All posts in PHP
In this tutorial I want to explain how we can build a small Vimeo instant search webapp. I’ll be creating the frontend with jQuery and the backend on PHP. There is actually a full developer’s API with references for programmers. I’ll stick to explaining the more convoluted ideas so that you can follow along with my source code.
I will first explain how we can put together the HTML document so it runs our frontend Ajax functions. Let’s include a reference to the most recent jQuery library which is used for Ajax calls. I’m also using another file v.js for our custom API commands.
In this tutorial I want to explain how we can build a similar instant search web application. Instead of pulling images from Google we can use Instagramwhich has grown tremendously in just a few short years.
This social network started off as a mobile app for iOS. Users could take photos and share them with their friends, leave comments, and upload to 3rd party networks such as Flickr. The team was recently acquired by Facebook and had published a brand new app for the Android Market. Their userbase has grown tremendously, and now developers can build amazing mini-apps just like this instasearch demo.
Today’s freebie is a collection of open source jQuery & PHP ajax contact forms, we call it Formify. Formify is a contribution to lessen the pain of creating contact forms. The collection contains six different forms that are commonly used. These open source contact forms can be customized as well to suit the need for your website/application.
Formify uses PhpMailer for email functionality. PHPMailer is a PHP email transport class featuring file attachments, SMTP servers, CCs, BCCs, HTML messages, word wrap, and more. Sends email via sendmail, PHP mail(), QMail, or directly with SMTP.
We set out with ambitious plans to have our website feature the live weather conditions using the geo location from anyone who looked at it. We wanted the time of day to be reflected depending on where they were based in the world, so somebody looking at the website in London, England would see a different style to someone looking at the website at the exact same time in San Diego, California. The goal was that people could see what the weather was like outside their window by looking at our website.

Sketch is a drawing tool with a twist; it allows you to draw in pseudo 3D. Sketches can be saved by users and viewed in a gallery.
I was tasked with creating a pop-up survey for a project. Fairly simple whether I used the jQuery dialog or not so I added a “Thank you” dialog that displays the survey results with a lightweight, css-based bar chart just for fun.
- Pop-up survey opens when page loads. Pop-ups on window.unload or window close are being blocked by most browsers due to abuse and overuse.
- Cookie is set when survey submitted or user opts out (“No, thanks” click).
- Closing dialog will not set cookie
All survey data is stored in a database and jQuery .post is used to shuttle the information back and forth.
In this tutorial we will be making a simple app with PHP and jQuery that lets users write notes. The notes are going to be saved in plain text files on the server. It demonstrates how to read and write files in PHP, how to resize a textarea with jQuery, depending on the text inside it, and how to create a simple AJAX interaction.
