###Put a route in place to get to an ajax controller

Here is an example of how that ajax controller may look:

namespace MyApp\Ajax;

use Giraffe\Giraffe;

class Ajax 
    public function someMethodYouRouteToForAjax()
        $allowedControllers = [Login::class, Dashboard::class];
        new Giraffe($allowedControllers, 'MyApp\\Controller\\', 'ajax', MYAPP_PATH . '/Views/ajax/');

Create a folder named giraffe in your js directory. Then chown apache:apache giraffe or chmod 777 giraffe.

Giraffe can update your Javascript File when composer updates the package.

Giraffe is designed to be used in conjunction with JQuery.
