Store simple data without a database using web storage solutions like XML, JSON, YAML, and HTML5.
- [Voiceover] Hi, Joe Lowery here, happy to welcome you to Working with Data on the Web. Often, designers need to convey simple data without the overhead of a relational database, such as MySQL. We'll first explore how the web collects data, through forms, with an emphasis on HTML5 innovations. Then, we'll work our way through robust technologies, like XML, JSON, and YAML, as well as showing some new tricks for handling good, old CSV files.
Finally, we'll take a close look at basic HTML5 data options, including local storage and the flexible data attribute. There's a ton of possibilities for handling data directly, and straightforwardly. So, let's get started with Working with Data on the Web.
- Interacting with data through HTML forms
- Storing data as comma-separated values
- Saving, retrieving, and displaying data as XML
- Setting up and updating JSON data
- Creating a YAML data file
- Using HTML5 data storage solutions
