Building a Content Management System with Prototype
Building a Content Management System with Prototype (Page 1 of 4 )
With the impressive proliferation of AJAX-driven applications, it's an undeniable fact that Prototype has found an important place inside the toolbox of many web developers, particularly because of its remarkable capacities for working with HTTP requester objects, array structures, online forms, and of course JSON-based programs, to name a few.
And now, speaking more specifically about the impressive group of features that come bundled with the Prototype framework, over the course of this series, which is comprised of three articles, I'm going to show you how to develop a highly expansible content management system that can be used to handle any kind of data.
In this case in particular, the CMS in question will be implemented to administer data related to publishable articles, including authors and titles. It will allow the insertion, updating and deletion of all this data with the assistance of the powerful Prototype's AJAX.Updater object and a simple MySQL database. The system can also be easily tuned to manage contents of a different nature.
