DeviantArt API Instant Search App using Ajax & PHP

The digital art community for DeviantArt is very popular and full of talented artists. Creative designers can publish any of their works to DA and share them to gather feedback and comments from other members. I love the community and have always been interested in digital artwork for online forums – avatars and signature banners.

So in this tutorial I want to explain how we can build a DeviantArt Instant Search app which searches through all the most popular banner signatures ever submitted to the website. You can enter some search terms and the app will pull results to display after you finish typing. This is a really cool application for designers who are looking for inspiration, or even for people who love DeviantArt and want a better way to search.
