My-BIC AJAX: State of Mind for PHP harmony

Category: Ajax, Programming

More and more Ajax frameworks are popping up out there, and sometimes it’s nice to see one that really wants to stick to the basics and do them well. Jim Plush’s “state of mind” offering, My-BIC, does just that.

After tiring of over hyped ajax frameworks trying to hide the guts that make ajax programming fun I decided to share my recipe for easy to make ajax applications where you still have control over everything, but the setup of it all is handled for you. This is a basic state of mind system rather than a framework. I offer you 3 files and a design pattern that allows you to focus on making things happen rather than setting things up. This is designed for PHP4 and PHP5

My-BIC provides support for XML, JSON and TEXT ajax transactions. My-BIC has also been tested to work with Safari, Firefox, IE and Opera web browsers

The structure of the software is provided in three main files – the Javascript file and two server-side PHP files (a front controller and an optional JSON handler). The main page provides a graphic to show an overview of how it all works together as well as a simple code exmaple to make it work.

The site also provides other resources for those working with My-BIC:

this is definately one of easier to use frameworks out there. the easy forms thing is awesome for dealing with forms as well.
