Peter Michaux has taken some time to writeup a Front-End Architecture Case Study: Blog Article Composition User Interface.
He plays with a couple of potential architectures for building a simple blog admin interface, such as:
- Old school: Normal Request/Response
- RJS Ajax Updates
- Client-Side App
You could argue the user interface should be WYSIWYG like the FCKEditor. A WYSIWYG editor would fall in the full client-side app category. It is virtually the same for this discussion as the third solution presented above. The WYSIWYG editor would submit the HTML with bold tags that will be used for the blog article rather than form data with asterisks. As mentioned earlier, the client-side app presented in this article could also submit HTML generated for the preview rather than the form data.
