Jim Plush, author of the popular My-Bic Ajax/PHP framework, has posted some new video tutorials on his site on four different topics.

4 new video tutorials have been put up on the My-Bic website that cover topics such as: Getting your HelloWorld script up running in 30 seconds, Using the Debugger, Using the Network Down functions.

These are just the first in a series, too. He plans to create more to cover the entire functionality of the framework. You'll need QuickTime to view them, and they range in time depending on the subject matter - anywhere from one to four minutes.

My-Bic version 0.6 Released
Mar 31, 2006 @ 20:08:08

Jim Plush has released the latest version of his My-Bic Ajax/PHP framework with a few cool enhancements - version 0.6 according to this new post.

The two major features added are JSON client side encoding and network down handling. Client side JSON encoding will allow you to send more complex structures to your PHP script and they can get converted to normal PHP objects. The other major feature is handling network down issues.

For example if your client script cannot get a response back from the server My-Bic will now allow you to define your own network down function or you can use the default method which creates a div on the screen alerting the user of network issues. If there are 3 requests that fail in a row My-Bic disables itself until the page is reloaded. All of those settings are configurable so you can change or override them.

The addition of these two features is definitely a plus for the framework - they provide two more advanced features that any developer can use thanks to the simplicity of the My-Bic framework. Some of the other features of the framework include easy forms, a built-in submission queue, and a bit to help you in debugging your scripts.

New AJAX/PHP framework - My-BIC is LIGHT and TASTY!
Feb 20, 2006 @ 07:06:36

In his latest post, Jim Plush looks at an Ajax/PHP framework that he has created that's lightweight and supports just the bare-bones of things - My-BIC.

I'm looking for some volunteers to try it out and voice their opinions. The basic concept is: one xmlhttp class that takes care of sending and receiving data and a php script on the server that acts as a front controller that all ajax requests go through.

2 lines of javascript and one php class are all you need to get an ajax setup going! So far it's for PHP5 however if there is interest in PHP4 I will create a quick version for that as well.

He gives a code example in the post, and includes a graphic detailing how it all ties together. For more information on this simple framework, check out its current site.
