This was a small website I made because my wife and I wanted an easy way to keep track of the things we wanted for gift idea purposes. I wanted it to be web-based so that friends and family could utilize it too. The main goal was to create something that was clean and could easily be maintained through a web interface. I also wanted to experiment with AJAX. All code work was done by hand using Notepad++ text editor.
- Site is database-driven and virtually all content comes from DB.
- Administration web interface allows users to easily add/remove list items and reorder their priority.
- Registry page allows guests to "claim" items as gifts to avoid purchasing the same item as someone else.
You can stalk me and my simple desires at wishlist.chrisriffey.com
Introductory list of users with lists on the site.
Primary list display for editing.
Re-ordering items based on personal priority preference is as easy as dragging the items.
Creating and editing the items is done through a simple ajax pop-up.
Each user's list has a registry version that others can use for gift coordination.
