Ever wanted to take a picture with a a web app, then upload it directly to your Amazon S3 bucket? Now you can, and this tutorial will teach you how. In this tutorial we are going to use jQuery Mobile, PHP and Amazon S3 to create a mobile picture uploader that will allow us to either take a new picture or upload an existing picture from our device. This now works with new version of iOS 6+ and uses the HTML5 file upload API to accomplish the goal. If you are not familiar with Amazon S3 this screencast might be a good starting point.

By default jQuery Mobile uses AJAX for page navigation and submitting forms. This allows AJAX to asynchronously load pages without having to navigate away from a current page or away from a form. This helps our jQuery Mobile web applications run more smoothly and more like those native apps built with Java and Objective-C.

However, sometimes we need to be able to submit our forms without using AJAX. Depending on what we are doing with our forms, AJAX can actually cause errors and problems. In this tip I’ll show you two separate ways to disable AJAX, first on the individual form level and then on the global scale.

What Is jQuery Mobile?

Anthony James —  February 28, 2012

jQuery Mobile is a software framework that allows you to create HTML5 and JavaScript based web applications with little need for software development experience. jQuery Mobile does the “heavy lifting” software development for you and allows you to immediately start developing web based applications with just a few lines of code. jQuery Mobile provides API integration into its software which gives greater control to you, the software developer, while building applications.

How do you make a split view in jQuery Mobile, much like the jQuery Mobile docs? Easy! In fact this screencast will walk you through the process of using CSS media queries to create a jQuery Mobile split view. Media Queries are useful when it comes to determining the layout of a site or app, and are used in responsive web design. They give you the ability to build one site or app for multiple screens at a single time and our jQuery site will show you how it’s done.

We are calling this screencast a hack because jQuery Mobile doesn’t have its own method to create a split view. The closest solution allows you to create grids, which is what we covered in this screencast. In this screencast we are going to look at the jquerymobile.com source and grab the CSS that is created on the jQuery Mobile Docs to create the split view. Of course, just as jQuery Mobile did, you can create your own CSS for your apps. However, we are going to just copy the source and implement into a simple app for a quick solution.
