Sample PHP backend for SurveyJS library

SurveyJS Home Page

Live Online Survey + Builder Demo


  • Install docker on your computer
  • Clone this repository in the surveyjs-php folder
  • Build surveyjs-php docker container via docker build -t surveyjs-php . command in the docker/surveyjs-php folder
  • Build postgresql-db docker container via docker build -t postgresql-db . command in the docker/postgresql-db folder
  • Start dockers container via the following commands:

docker run --name dbsrv -p 5432:5432 -d postgresql-db

docker run --name appsrv --link dbsrv:dataserver -p 8000:80 -d -v <ABSOLUTE PATH TO THE SRC FOLDER>:/var/www/site/ surveyjs-php

Note: if you are familliar with docker and docker-compose, just run docker-compose up from the docker folder.

Note: <ABSOLUTE PATH TO THE SRC FOLDER> is the path to the surveyjs-php/src folder on your computer.

At this point demo surveyjs-php service will be available at the http://localhost:8000 address. If everything is ok, you should see project home page with list of available surveys and links to Survey and Editor pages.

  • You can continue with survey via Run page, go through the survey and post results to the custom service.
  • You can continue with editor via Edit page, change the survey and store survey JSON to the custom service.
  • Saved survey results are available via Results link.

In order to post survey results it is needed to:

  • initialize survey json with a post id
    var surveyJson = {
        surveyPostId: '3ce10f8b-2d8a-4ca2-a110-2994b9e697a1',
  • to set up custom service URL
    Survey.dxSurveyService.serviceUrl = "http://localhost:8000";

These changed are demoinstrated in the /src/survey.js file of this repo.
