Setting up the Environment
Before we dive into coding, ensure you have a text editor and a web browser handy. You might also want to use a code editor like Visual Studio Code for an enhanced experience.
Step 1 (HTML Code):
To start, let's create the basic HTML structure. We'll set up the essential elements that our Notes App will rely on. These include the header, the note container, and the input field.
Let's break down the code step by step:
1. <!DOCTYPE html>: This is the document type declaration and indicates that this is an HTML5 document.
2. <html lang="en">: This opening tag signifies the start of the HTML document. It also specifies that the primary language used in the document is English (the "en" attribute).
3. <head>: The head section contains metadata and links to external resources. Here, you have:
<meta charset="UTF-8">: Specifies the character encoding of the document as UTF-8, which is a widely used character encoding for handling text in various languages.
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">: This is a directive for Internet Explorer, instructing it to use the latest rendering engine (the "edge" mode) for compatibility.
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">: This meta tag is used for responsive web design and ensures that the webpage adapts to various device screen sizes.
<title>Note App</title>: Sets the title of the web page to "Note App," which is displayed in the browser's title bar or tab.
<link>: Links to external resources. In this case, it's linking to the Bootstrap CSS framework to style the page.
4. <body>: The body section contains the main content of the web page. Here's what it includes:
5. <nav>: Defines a navigation bar at the top of the page. It uses Bootstrap classes for styling and includes a logo, a collapsible menu, and a search form.
6. <div class="container my-3">: This container holds the main content of the page. It includes a greeting, a card for adding notes, and a section for displaying existing notes.
7. Inside the container:
<h1>: Displays the main heading "Hello! Take your notes."
<div class="card my-2 mx-2">: This is a Bootstrap card element that holds the note input form. It has a title, a text area for adding notes, and "Add note" and "Clear" buttons.
<h1> Your notes</h1>: Another heading for the section displaying notes.
Building a Notes App is a fantastic project for beginners, offering practical experience in web development. Don't hesitate to experiment and add more features to make your app truly unique. Happy coding!
