My name is Kauress and you may know me from the “Introduction to git” class on SitePoint
Goal of the project series:
This is a complete hands on series and the projects we will be coding are:
1. A single operation calculator: The calculator allow you to add, subtract multiply and divide 2 numbers with or without a decimal point. Our calculator will also have A backspace and clear feature. Our calculator will automatically start new calculations after the equal to operator is clicked. Eval has not used!
2. A to-do List : A to-do list based on arrays and array methods which will allow you to add, strike through or delete individual items and additionally you can also add an item using the enter key on your keyboard and then clear the list
3.Pomodoro: A pomodoro is a productivity method to track work and break durations, the pomodoro will have functions such as start, pause and reset. And it will automatically start the break duration after the work period is over
4. WYSIWYG editor: A what you is see is what you get editor which will have all the basic features of a standard text editor such as bold, center align , color text and so on. This project include new topics like local storage, which will allow your draft to be saved even after you refresh the page
5. Calender widget: A calendar widget that shows not only the current , previous and next day but also the current time and local weather. And in this project you will be use the date and time objects and an API
What are the per-requisites?
series is best suited to those that have had little exposure to
What if I am an absolute beginner? :
When you finish this course, you will be able to:
2.Showcase your work to potential employers
What tools do I need to do the projects? :
A overview of the outcome of this project series.
Learn about the DOM, which is a structural blueprint of elements on a web page.
Let's go over some very basic properties and methods of the DOM.
A general overview of navigating the DOM.
Download the starter project
Brief overview of the structure and design of the calculator.
In this section we will briefly go over a few concepts related to initializing a few global variables for the calculator
Let's initialize a few global variables for the calculator!
Let's go over a few concepts related to coding the setValue(number) function
Let's put the buttons on the calculator to work with function setValue(number.
Brief overview of the concepts involved in coding the functionality for the operator buttons
Let's code the oppClick function and see what happens when you click on an operator button such as the +, -, * or / sign.
Let's learn about the concepts that will help us code the equalClick function
Perform calculations and update the display div with the equalClick function.
Learn about the substring method and strict inequality comparison operator (!==).
Code the backspace feature!
Let's go over the indexOf method to help you code the setDecimal function.
Set decimal points in numbers with the setDecimal function.
Let's bundle up and re-use those pesky if-else blocks with the setOppString function.
My classes are "project based" and contextual. Therefore, the implementation of new concepts and technologies is through a project.
