Development Examples

Type something

Coding Demo

When a user types a comment and clicks the submit button, it passes through Jquery using an ajax request:

        
        $('#form').submit(function(e){
            e.preventDefault();
            var $comment = $('#comment').val();
            $.ajax({
                url:"url.php",
                type:"POST",
                data:{
                    comment: $comment
                },
                success:function(data){
                    $('#post).append(data);
                }
            });
        
        });

We then use PHP to send the request and parse it through Amazon's DynamoDB as a POST/PUT request:

        if(isset($_POST['comment'])){
        
            $id = uniqid();
            $comment = $_POST['comment'];
        
            $result = $dynamodb->putItem([
                'TableName' => 'Comments',
                'Item' => [
                    'id' => ['S' => $id],
                    'comment' => ['S' => $comment],
                    'title' => ['S' => 'Batman']
                ]
            ]);
            
            print_r($result);
        
        }
        

To retrieve the posted items, we scan the database which finds the particular items that are stored in the table and print it in the DOM elements:

        
        if(isset($_GET['query'])){
        
            $search = $_GET['query'];

            $loadComments = $dyanmodb->scan([
                'TableName' => 'Comments', 
                'ExpressionAttributeValues' => [
                    ':val1' => ['S' => $search]
                ],
                'FilterExpression' => 'title = :val1',
                'Limit' => 10 

            ]);

            if($loadComments['ScannedCount'] == 0 || $loadComments['Count'] == 0){
                echo "<p>Sorry we couldn't find what you're looking for...</p>";
            }else{
                foreach($loadComments['Items'] as $key => $value){
                    $id = $value['id']['S'];
                    $comment = $value['comment']['S'];
                    echo "<p>".$comment."</p>";
                }
            }
        
        
        }
