Recording what you ate for breakfast, web 2.0 style.

Friday, July 21st, 2006

If you’ve been to Mealographer in the past, you may have noticed some changes to the meal entry system. I’m learning AJAX and using it to make the meal entry system more interactive and repsonsive.

Now your favorites and usuals will show up in the list. Also, I’ve added a search box where you can add foods as you go.
One of my design goals is to make use of unobtrusive Javascript. I’m working feverishly toward that goal right now, and the form should work for fairly recent browsers that support Javascript. I have noticed at least one issue while using Safari, so I’ll get that working as soon as I can borrow my wife’s iBook. I’ll have the system working for those of you without Javascript soon.

As I get some time, I’ll post a few technical articles about issues I’ve run into. Please post below if you are running into any issues. Thanks!
