I'll try to keep this short and simple.
I haven't begun writing the code for this project yet, but I'm trying to work out the pre-coding logistics as of right now.
What I am looking to do, is create a method of sending data from one/any site, to another remote server, which would generate a response for the user requesting the data be sent.
Specifically, a web designer should be able to take a snippet of code I would have available on my website, implement it into their own page(s), and when a user browses their page(s), my service would be available.
A specific example, a web designer with a website (
) could implement my code into their page (
). When a user is viewing the page (
), the user hovers the mouse over a text word (lemonade) for a couple seconds, a small dialog box pops up beside it, providing the user with some options specific to the text (example of an option would be "Define 'lemonade' at Dictionary.com") that if selected, would be processed at, and a response would be returned from my remote server (
Obviously, I would want the code that designers would be using to be as lightweight and standalone as possible. Any ideas as to how I could execute this? Resources I should study, and methods I could implement?
