Develop AJAX applications with Django and jQuery using Packt's new book

February 2011 | AJAX, Open Source

Packt is pleased to announce Django JavaScript Integration: AJAX and jQuery, a new practical, hands-on and comprehensive guide to developing any AJAX application with Django and jQuery. Written by Jonathan Hayward, this book will take readers through the process of AJAX server side integration using Django and AJAX client side integration with jQuery thereby enriching their applications, all this with minimum bother.

Django is a high-level Python Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design. It makes it easier to build better Web Applications more quickly and with less code. jQuery is a fast and concise JavaScript Library that simplifies HTML document traversing, event handling, animating, and Ajax interactions for rapid web development.

Django JavaScript Integration: AJAX and jQuery starts off with a short and necessary introduction to the world of Django, jQuery, and AJAX; and the remaining chapters are based on a carefully chosen case study that will make readers realize the immense potential and benefits of integrating Django and jQuery with their AJAX application. After working through this book, readers will have both an AJAX application and a deep understanding that they can use to customize, extend, and further develop it in their organization.

Using this book, readers will learn about the XMLHttpRequest Object and how to implement it in various browsers, embed JavaScript in Django templates, account creation and login creation using AJAX. They will be able to build forms using Django models, embed jQuery auto-complete plugins, and integrate jQuery sliders. Developers will then learn to validate form input on the server side using AJAX and minify JavaScript files while learning the pros and cons of doing so.

A hands-on-guide which has the answers to all the questions regarding using Django and jQuery to create AJAX applications, this book is ideal for Django users who are looking to easily integrate AJAX features into their applications. The book is out now and available from Packt. To read more about it, please visit: www.packtpub.com/django-javascript-integration-ajax-and-jquery/book.
