The TutsPlus.com site has posted the next in their "Building Your Startup" series of tutorials covering the use of Yii2 to create a calendaring application. In this new part of the series they continue migrating some functionality over to use an Ajax-powered system, reducing the need for page reloads.
Last week, I delved deeper into Ajax to transform the meeting scheduling experience into a fully ajaxified model and eliminated the need for page refreshes. I got about halfway, focusing mostly on the straightforward elements.
The tutorial then walks through the updates needed to move over various pieces of functionality to the Ajax-driven model:
- adding meeting participants
- adding dates and times
- adding meeting places
There's also a few screenshots included of the Chrome developer console and what some of the example request/responses look like, helping you debug your own development work.
