AHAX

A plugin that provides easier access to AJAX functionality within plugins and themes.

AHAX is a drop-in solution that allows theme or plug-in developers to take advantage of a very simple and streamlined way of making AJAX requests.

The goal of this plugin is to make the process of setting up an AJAX request as simple as possible.

This plugin centers AJAX requests around an "action." This action is "bound" to a function (handler) on the back-end and called to from front-end via a custom JavaScript class method -- this process is demonstrated below.

Back-End

ahax::bind( 'get_random_number', 'generate_number' );
function generate_number($output) {
    $max = abs( ( int ) $_POST['max'] );
    $output = mt_rand( 0 , ( $max <= 1000 ? $max : 1000 ) );
    return $output;
}

Front-End

var ahax = new AHAX();
ahax.post( 'get_random_number', { max : 1000 }, function( response ) {
    jQuery( '#ahax_number' ).html( response );
});
