Do you remember your very first project? What was it?
Starting my 'timer' project I didn't expect it would be so complicated. I didn't think of any CSS or additional features, the idea was to create just a webpage with simple timer countdown.
Soon I realized I need background, cool fonts and some keys and mouse events listeners.
I had to Google a lot. I mean really a lot, stackoverflow, w3schools and developer.mozilla are the websites that have answers to all my questions. Important! - you can find similar code but the main task is to adopt it 😉
I made stupid mistakes such as misspelling, syntax errors, but THE moment I saw my code worked... Stunning!
The project (https://rikku-x.github.io/timer) took me three or four evenings.
I learned about:
•setInterval + clearInterwal
•window.onload + onmousemove + onkeypress events •querySelector
•custom background and favicon
•adding visitor tracking tools
•using browser dev tools
Page is not mobile friendly, but I will update it.
