Roadmap for Managing Smaller JSON Files for Tributes and Prayers

Phase 1: Initial Setup and File Creation

  1. Create Index JSON File:
    • Objective: Generate an index file with basic information for all tributes.
    • Steps:
      1. Read the existing tributes.json and prayers.json files.
      2. Combine tributes and their respective prayers.
      3. Create smaller JSON files for each tribute, including their prayers.
      4. Generate an index.json file with basic tribute details and prayer counts.
  2. Script for Splitting JSON Files:
    • Objective: Create a PHP script to split the large JSON files into smaller, individual tribute files.
    • Steps:
      1. Read the tributes.json and prayers.json files.
      2. Group prayers by tribute ID.
      3. Create a JSON file for each tribute, containing both tribute details and prayers.
      4. Save these files in a tributes directory.

Phase 2: Display and Load Tributes Dynamically

  1. Update the Tribute Listing Page:
    • Objective: Modify the tribute listing page to load data from the index.json file.
    • Steps:
      1. Load the index.json file using AJAX.
      2. Display the list of tributes based on the data in the index.json file.
      3. Implement infinite scroll or pagination for better performance.
  2. Load Tribute Details on Demand:
    • Objective: Fetch and display detailed tribute information dynamically.
    • Steps:
      1. Add event listeners for user interactions (e.g., clicking on a tribute).
      2. Load the respective JSON file for the selected tribute using AJAX.
      3. Display the detailed information, including prayers.

Phase 3: Implement Editing Functionality

  1. Create an Edit Form:
    • Objective: Develop a web form to edit tribute details and prayers.
    • Steps:
      1. Create a PHP page with a form to load and edit tribute details.
      2. Fetch and display the tribute data based on the provided LUID.
      3. Allow editing of tribute details and prayers.
      4. Include JavaScript to dynamically add and remove prayer fields.
  2. Handle Form Submissions:
    • Objective: Save the updated tribute details and prayers back to the JSON file.
    • Steps:
      1. Process the form submission using PHP.
      2. Update the respective JSON file with the new data.
      3. Provide feedback to the user (e.g., success or error messages).

Phase 4: Enhancements and Optimization

  1. Optimize Data Loading:
    • Objective: Ensure efficient data loading and updating processes.
    • Steps:
      1. Implement caching mechanisms to reduce server load.
      2. Optimize AJAX requests for better performance.
      3. Ensure proper error handling and fallback mechanisms.
  2. Security and Validation:
    • Objective: Enhance the security and validation of data handling processes.
    • Steps:
      1. Implement input validation for the edit form.
      2. Ensure proper sanitization of user inputs.
      3. Implement authentication and authorization mechanisms if necessary.
