Gadgets Galore

As anyone who knows me is aware, I’m a bit of a gadget fan. In fact, fan might be a little bit of an understatement. Since I’m always looking for a new gadget to buy, IĀ figured it’d be nice to have a site to tell me what gadget to buy. One thing led to another, and now whatgadgetshouldibuy.com exists.

Aside from being a completely useful shopping list for myself, I really played around with the technology used. I built a small REST API with PHP on the backend. The frontend communicates with this using only asynchronous Javascript queries, meaning that the site feels responsive all the time. I also used the Javascript history API very heavily to keep this one page app able to share links and to navigate back and forth.

Most of the feedback I’ve received is positive, and for some reason, I consistently get traffic from a small town in Russia. Hope this helps you decide what gadget you should buy next.
