Sys-Con Brasil: a Drag-and-Drop Shopping Cart HowTo

Category: Ajax, Programming

<>p> On the Sys-Con Brasil site site, there’s a new tutorial posted that walks you through the creation of a drag-and-drop shopping cart system with the help of Scipt.aculo.us and <cf_srs>.

We’re going to harness the power of the Scipt.aculo.us JavaScript library to provide our interaction. As their Web site states, this library “provides you with easy-to-use, compatible and, ultimately, totally cool JavaScript libraries to make your web sites and web applications fly, Web 2.0 style.” We’re also going to utilize the library to handle the actual AJAX data piping to our application. Both of these libraries are free for all to use, and they’re easier to integrate than you would think.

The article works from the ground up, including the various libraries before anything else. From there, they move on to “draggables”, the adding of the actual (empty) shopping cart to the page, and how to get the to play nice with it all. There’s code included along the way to help out too…

Chris – hoping you’re reading this.. I am the author of this article and it was actually posted to ColdFusion Developer Journal first and later by AJAX Developer Journal. It seems it’s been picked up elsewhere as well now.

I had also blogged about the article on my new AJAX and ColdFusion blog called Building Blocks. I emailed the main ajaxian link last week to let you guys know about the site. Check it out at http://www.ajaxcf.com

I expect to have a live sample of this on my site posted tonight – I will post another comment when that’s ready..

The shopping cart is not a ready-to-go one for an e-commerce website but it is a nice base for creating one by improving the features.
