Overview

Realtime Web Apps:With HTML5 WebSocket, PHP, and jQueryis a guide for beginner- to intermediate-level web developers looking to take the next leap forward in website and app development: realtime.

With Realtime Web Apps, you’ll be able to quickly get up to speed on what HTML5 WebSocket does, how it is going to affect the future of the web as we know it, and—thanks to Pusher’s simple API—start developing your first realtime app today.

Using a practical approach rather than focusing on dry theory, Realtime Web Apps will guide you through building your first app using HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, and Pusher. After your initial introduction to the technologies used in the book, you’ll immediately jump into the process of creating a realtime Q&A app that will work on desktop browsers as well as mobile phones (including iOS and Android).

In addition to learning realtime development strategies, you’ll also learn progressive development strategies including responsive CSS3 layouts, AJAX development with jQuery, and more.

The future of the web is realtime. Grab your hoverboard.

  • Introduces you to the revolutionary capabilities of the HTML5 WebSocket API
  • Gets you started with WebSocket immediately using the super-simple Pusher API
  • Walks you through the development of a real-life realtime web app
  • Gets you working with responsive layouts, jQuery, and AJAX development

What you’ll learn

  • Familiarize yourself with what “realtime” means and how it changes the web as we know it.
  • Learn how to utilize responsive web design and jQuery to create a single web app instead of multiple platform-specific applications.
  • Get up and running with the Pusher API to start developing realtime apps today.
  • Build a web app back-end with PHP and MySQL.
  • Integrate AJAX and realtime interactivity into your web app.
  • Use OAuth 2.0 to allow users to log in to your app (including Facebook and Twitter OAuth).
