IBM developerWorks:
Devise Web 2.0 applications with PHP and DHTML (Part 1)
May 05, 2006 @ 07:09:04

The IBM developerWorks site has started a new series of articles today with the posting of this new tutorial focusing on the creation of Web 2.0 applications with the help of PHP and DHTML.

The buzzword of 2006 is Web 2.0. What that means is hotly debated, but it appears to refer to cool dynamic Web applications. Those Web applications -- often developed in PHP -- use dynamic HTML (DHTML) to create pages that move and change without having to go back to the server for a refresh. Author Jack Herrington explains how to get started in this "Devise Web 2.0 applications with PHP and DHTML" series.

Though the term DHTML is becoming a bit more scarce than it once was (being replaced by phrases like "dynamic pages with Javascript" or "javascript DOM manipulation"), it's still a powerful ally when combined with a flexible backend like PHP. They provide a few examples of applications that can be built with this combination including popup ad boxes, general popups, spinners (show/hide blocks of HTML), and tabs.

For each of the items, they give both the HTML and PHP code to get the job done, making it a simple matter of grabbing the code and pasting it into your favorite editor to get started. The next part of the article series will cover the creation of dynamic graphs and the creation of new HTML elements with the help of Javascript.
