Static websites can look good and be great for serving content like company information, blog posts, etc. But the content is static, always the same, unlike a social media feed that constantly updates.
For years, all websites were static.
Static pages are created using HTML, which defines the basic content and structure of the site. HTML is used for headings, frames, the embedding of images, inserting tables and so on. Customized Style Sheets (CSS) tell the browser how to render the HTML content. For example, the colour theme for pages. A reasonable working knowledge of advanced HTML and CSS is all you need to develop static web pages. Or you can use a framework like WordPress or even page builders to completely avoid having to code yourself.
When does IT Outsourcing work?
(And when doesn’t it?)
Many contemporary websites offer dynamic functionalities like selecting an item for download, filling a form, viewing demos or playing games, right there on the website. Websites also often need to ‘remember’ user actions and be able to display changes in real-time. Updates must happen in real-time, without the need to refresh the browser.
Front-end website developers must focus on the site layout, usability, responsiveness, and dynamic launch of animations or videos. To design such live websites or web-based applications, the content of your site (text/images) is stored on a database or content management system. When the information is modified or altered within the database, the website reflects this change.
Interpreted languages are flexible in general, and often have features like dynamic typing and small program size. The code is platform-independent since interpreters execute the source program code themselves.
Some popular front-end JS Frameworks are:
Node.js is different from the JS frameworks available for the front-end environment. Catering to back-end requirements, it has unique APIs for HTTP requests, file systems and other server-side features for which frontend frameworks provide limited support.
Some popular examples of websites that use node.js include Paypal, LinkedIn, Netflix, and Uber!
To try out the above code:
To understand and use JS, you must understand Document Object Models (DOMs). Let’s circle back a bit.
A web page is a document. A web page can be displayed in a browser or viewed as HTML source. Either way, it is the same document in both views – browser view or source code view. The Document Object Model (DOM) represents this same document, so it can be worked upon.
