Bzbeats is built with php and MySQL database.


Data is passed in using two php files. The first one is db_connect.php which contains information required to connect MySQL server.

The second file, data_feed.php, feeds the data that it fetches from the server, and turns it into a json file.

I used jQuery to pass the data in that json file to the DOM.


While for some parts of the page I use php to display the data like this,

I used jQuery to populate the content in store page by using the data_feed.php file mentioned earlier.

I also use jQuery on my page interactions such as filtering and playing audio files.


I used three css files for this project. Since I didn’t use any frameworks, I established a grid.css file for page layout and common.css for basic styling of the text, link, and form. The last css file, theme.css, that is solely used to style this project specifically.

I separated the css intro three files because I can reuse my grid system and basic setup later on in my future projects.
