Thursday, June 11, 2009 | News | AJAX

PHP and script.aculo.us Web 2.0 Application Interfaces is a new book from Packt that is aimed at helping developers enhance their web applications and build their projects with script.aculo.us and PHP. Written by Sridhar Rao, this book explores the prototype library features, tutorials, and codes with the help of real-world case studies.

Script.aculo.us is a JavaScript library that provides dynamic visual effects, user interface controls, and robust AJAX features. It is most notably included with Seaside and Ruby on Rails, but is also provided separately to work with other web application frameworks and scripting languages.

This book explores all aspects of writing applications, right from simple effects to the AJAX way of communicating through systems in applications. The reader will explore and implement the striking features of script.aculo.us such as Sliders, Auto-Completion, and Multimedia etc, and will be shown a new way of adding interactivity to their web applications by adding multimedia effects such as morph, highlight, fade, and MP3 sounds.

The readers will learn about the Prototype library features like DOM, AJAX, and event handling, and will be taught how to implement these features to create a ready-to-go-live project. By integrating features of script.aculo.us library to web applications, they can create a mash-up of Delicious and Digg applications and experience a new shopping search. Users will also learn the tips, tricks and applications of the InPlaceEditor and InPlaceCollection Editor with a few lines of code.

Web developers interested in building simple, agile and useful web applications will find this book useful. The book is out now and is available from Packt. For more information, please visit: PHP and script.aculo.us Web 2.0 Application Interfaces
