hello guys i don’t want to start the wrong way and i would like to create a web page animation dynamically showing datas from a database in hype … what is the best way to make hype communicate with a database in 2018 ? mysql php and ajax or something more accurate ? thanks for your help … and if by chance someone is okay to work it with me as a freelance i am open … of course this is urgent …
There are lots of ways. It depends on your resources.
Me, I'd probably use a combination of Drupal and Hype. The keyword you're probably looking for is JSON. The database, combined with a web server, would output the data. Hype would go get that data and display it locally.
Again, resources is key. This sounds like an expensive project. So, you might want to research more. A Drupal project (and web projects in general) can get VERY EXPENSIVE if you're not careful. (Unfortunately, it sounds like you don't have enough time to properly research affordable solutions.) Perhaps a simpler solution is quicker, easier and cheaper. I'm familiar with Drupal and Hype, so that's probably how I would fix the problem, but that's not the only way to do it.
Maybe more detail will help...
Where's the data coming from?
Is this live data that needs to be constantly updated?
How exactly is the data to be displayed? (Charts?!)
I haven't actually taken on any freelance projects from here, just being friendly
many thanks for your help … the objective is simple i have a list of guests that arrives in a room … names and firstnames. I want to record their name in a database to be sorted alphabetically and then when, i need it, i want to action a kind of wheel of fortune that will turn and point out a name randomly from the database . This name will be shown on screen and that’s it …
If this is a onetime scenario you don’t even need a database. Just store the info in the app / browser (LocalStorage). I just put the following “hammer” together and therefor every problem currently looks like a"nail" to me
If you need a database you need to run a server and a server side language.
Or you can use a async call to the server and request the data from the server using a Ajax (JSON etc.). JQuery (ajax, get) has this included and for vanila JS you can use https://github.com/cferdinandi/atomic
