HTML, CSS, JavaScript Explained [For beginners]

Every web page on the internet uses HTML, CSS,and JavaScript. Think of them as the foundational coding languages of the internet. Just like how Belgium has 3 languages (French, Dutch, German), web pages also have languages. In the case of websites, their languages are HTML, CSS, and Javascript. Sure you may have heard of them, but do you really know how they work? Web Development is what you see when you go to a website.

Introduction

HTML is Hypertext Markup Language, or “The Builder”. CSS is Cascading Style Sheets, which I consider”The Artist”. And JavaScript “The Wizard”. They are all different languages, and work differently. But HTML, CSS, and Javascript need one another to make a website. Imagine you want to code this homepage using HTML. But just HTML. HTML essentially would define all the content, the text, the images, the links. But without CSS “The Artist”, and without JavaScript “The Wizard”: an HTML only website would look like this. CSS adds the styling to a website. CSS can’t live without HTML or else there would be nothing to style. It is responsible for outlining the colors, the fonts, and the positioning of content. Your website will now look like this. Now we come to Javascript, “The Wizard”. Popup air messages, the auto completes that you use, that is all JavaScript. Now that you understand how it works, and the “3 Amigos” here are 3 things to remember about HTML, CSS, and Javascript.

HTML, CSS, JavaScript Explained [For beginners]
  • They make up what is called “Front EndWeb Development”. Front End Web Development is what you see when you land on a page, as opposed to Back End Web Development, which is actually what makes an application on the web work.
  • Web browsers like Firefox and Chrome, translate these three languages into the visual webpage. Without a browser, these languages are just words on a page. Sometimes, because of this, the website looks slightly different on Chrome, Firefox and definitely looks different on Internet Explorer. Because all of these Browsers translate a little differently.
  • HTML, CSS, and JavaScript are constantly evolving. It’s just like any language. These coding languages have a history. They’ve been around for a few years now. Right now the standard language procedures for HTML, CSS, and Javascript are called “HTML5”. There’s even a body and a society online that manages the rules and best practices of how to build for Front End Web Development. So in the beginning you actually had HTMLcontrolling a lot of visual aspects. You used a “bold” tag to make text bold. You used a “center” tag to make your text-centered. But over time, after the 90s, you actually had CSS making up most of that. In the beginning, JavaScript was mostly for popups and now it animates most of our websites. So whatever you see on the world wide web, you have “Los tres amigos” to thank for it.

Website on HTML or WordPress, which is better?

Try to Understand this, If I want a website that looks good and Works Properly, for the Business and in which I don’t need any Specific Functionality Then, in that case, I can make that website on WordPress. Let’s Understand, What is WordPress? WordPress is a Kind of Framework in which the coding is Pre Defined. Basically, WordPress also words on Coding, In Framework, the Coding is Pre Defined Like, If I click on that button, it will Auto-Generate a Code Accordingly But, Those Pre Sets that they have made is all that we have So, If I want to make a Website that looks Good and Words Good And for the functionality that I want, there must be a Plugins some are free and some are paid for the functionality. can I install the Plugins for the Functionality? Or there is no Plugin for the Functionality that I want next point could be, that my Website will get heavy if I’ll install a lot of Plugins That is the only Drawback in the WordPress But in Coding, we have almost all control in our hands. We can make anything we want and if we do clean coding, then the Website will be fast and Lighter also We used plugins in the WordPress, we will use some tools here also But those will be Relatively Fast and If want something Unique, that hasn’t been Designed Yet Then I can do that in Coding That’s the Only Difference I can develop applications in Coding I can make Chatbox in coding, can make many Unique Things That exist in Internet But if I’ll Stick to WordPress, I can make WordPress Websites only and that too only for the Basic Business Profiles 1 pager one, OR the 5 pages.

One you can also make E-Commerce But I’ll say that a big E-Commerce can’t be handled by the WordPress and If you try to make it run on WordPress, then you going to need a Huge amount for Servers So better thing will be going for Coding if you are looking for WordPress based Website If you are thinking something big, but if you have limited products WordPress will work Now, the advantage with the WordPress is that it’s very easy Coding needs a lot of efforts and time and we are not Pro in Coding, we might get in Trouble there is No chances of stucking in coding with WordPress.

WordPress also has pre-made Website Designs and you can make a decent website out of it. But if we talk about the coding, we have to write it from scratch. It’s possible that we have Codes Snippet From our Research or Our Sources Or stole it from somewhere, or from someone’s old work we can use them by copy-paste in Coding, that how can you use the Pre-made HTML Templates. But We modified someone’s old work. But if we want hardcore changes, Then we have to Do coding

The Next advantage with the WordPress is If you make a Hardcore coded Website, It will take Time and Times means Money, Basically, If you come to me for the Development of the Website I have to give salary to my employs also and if that website is taking around 2-3 Months and 4-5 people are working on it, then at least I will charge their Salary. The basic things are this But a person can Deliver a Website in WordPress in 1-2 Days if He/She works Hard If you go to another person also for the Development in WordPress then it will develop the Website relatively in Less Price. I would like to tell you one more thing that is Security WordPress works on his security of its own and you have to work on the Website security by your own in Coding So there could be Hike in the Expenses in the Coding Basically there are 4 Points only First one is Hardwork, you have to work harder in the coding and relatively less in WordPress Then Time Coding requires a lot of Timing in the Development Then Price Coding would cost you high as compared to the cost in Coding Ease, Coding Require more,

WordPress Require less Forth one in Security, You have to work on the Security of your Website on the Coding, whereas the WordPress work on its security by its own and with Updates Just like what we get in Mobiles, Similarly WordPress Roll Out the Updates Now think by Yourself, what is Important for you If we want a Basic Website, then I’ll go for the WordPress and I have something Specific in my Mind, then I’ll go for the Hardcore Website Coding. Do share your Point of View, Why WordPress is Better and Why coding is Better? Greetings.
