[Easy dynamic websites using FuzzyToast]
- Speaker : [Howard Abrams]
- Available : [Anytime]
- Duration : [30 minutes (but flexible)]
Clearly, build clunky, inefficient web applications by having servers create HTML pages is so twentieth century. However, for many situations, setting up a Backbone may be more effort than needed. In this session, I'll build a complete web application that dynamic retrieves its data from a server that delivers JSON through a REST interface to show how easy FuzzyToast is to make panels that update themselves.
This target audience for this session is those familiar with jQuery, but not experts and building complete web applications.
I built my first web app in 1993 when I traded in my Tk GUIs for Perl
CGIs running on CERN's first implementation of
httpd. After building
many web apps in Java and icky JSPs (even creating my own framework
to solve the problem), I started the FuzzyToast project to allow a
browser to do the work of rendering dynamic web pages.
