This tutorial is meant for those who can write a PHP function, know what jQuery is, can handle their CSS well, but would like some insider info on how a web service is built from scratch. How should I organize my files, where should I keep my functions, how should I start planning the thing, how should I connect to the database, how should I handle AJAX calls and how should I manage my 404 pages are just some of the questions I try to shed some light on here.
The service we will be creating is called Bonsai Writer, a tool which will convert plain text into HTML. It is aimed mostly at writers but it can also be used as a note stash for more general use.
