Quick and Dirty How-to: Showing Projects from DonorsChoose.org with PHP and AJAX

While developing the Memory Lane application, I decided I wanted to list projects from DonorsChoose.org on the app's main page. Given their convenient API, this seemed like an easy way to support a good cause.

The DonorsChoose API for retrieving project data is simple and well documented. Project data is returned in JSON format; JSON itself is pretty simple, so I figured that retrieving and displaying the project list would be as well.

Turns out that I was both right and wrong, so I wrote up what I learned in case it helps anyone else. If you're curious see my DonorsChoose.org API How-To.
