Youtube video transcript (text may not be 100% accurate):
with no further ado, we let’s get into making an HTML page. So you’ve saved your index dot HTML. Now, go to Chrome and open file, open your index dot HTML file where you saved it. Mine shows local host, because I’m using live reload, basically, whatever I type,
it’s automatically going to
refresh over here for me automatically for you, you’re gonna have to hit save,
you’re gonna have to come over to Chrome, you can have to
refresh. But I have for the sake of this video, I’m doing it differently. So let’s build an HTML page. The core of HTML is tags, basically, that’s all there is. HTML is tags. A tag is basically something surrounded by greater than, and less than kind of quotes. And so this is an HTML tag. And this is a closing HTML tag, pardon me, if you can hear my baby crying somewhere way in the background. I’m not sure what’s going on out there. But I’m sure mom will take care of it
said like a good dad. Right. So here we have
HTML opening tag.
html closing tag tags are a little awkward to type it first, because they use those keys down towards the bottom right, that you don’t use very often. But I promise you’ll get fast very quickly. So basically, anything in between these HTML tags is considered within the HTML tags,
there’s basically three tags that you’re going to use to create a web page, there’s an HTML, which means, hey, this is my HTML page. Anything inside of this is considered your web page,
you’re going to make a head tag,
which we’ll get into in a little
bit. And you’re going to make a body tag, whatever’s in the body tag is what your user will see and interact with.
So I’m going to put in here,
and now have a web page, congratulations, you’re a web developer.
And you’re probably thinking, wow, this is kind of complicated. It’s all this code looking stuff. Don’t worry, it looks like a foreign language at first. But seriously, within five times, you’re going to feel very comfortable. There’s only like 10 tags, maybe 20 at the most you’re going to use and they’re all tags, you just have to remember a different word. So far, all we’ve actually done is created three tags, we made an HTML tag, we put a head tag with inside of it. And we put a body tag with inside of it as well. And these are considered siblings, they’re next to each other. I’m also going to add a title tag.
And inside of the title, I’m going to put my web page
and I can’t type today,
my webpage. And now you look at the top, when you refresh, it says, my web page at the top of your web page or your tab. So once again, the
head is not what the user interacts with, this is all reserved for other stuff,
which is why the title goes up there. And so the body is what the user interacts with. And we did hello world. And the rest of our example will be adding other tags in here.
let me show you kind of some other tags. This is bold. So we’re going to wrap bold, what’s called wrapping it in be tags.
And now you can see that bold is bold,
because I wrapped it in be, which stands for bold em, is what we’re going to use for talc.
And em basically stands for emphasis, it used to be people would use I
it also works. But that is not the correct way to do it anymore. Do not show a prospective employer that because it’s not good. So b is for bold. e. m, is for Italian. And then
let’s see, actually strong, I can’t believe I did this strong is what we’re going to use for bold we used to use be, and we used to use AI. And we used to use you for underline. But now we use strong for bold and we use em for attacks. And we started doing this when we started getting into mobile devices and devices that might not actually have the capability of rendering bold, or italics. And so we needed some other way to let the user know. Or maybe it’s a screen reader that you should display it in whatever way you can. So,
but for the most part, strong is always bold. Em is always a talent, that’s about all you need to know. So we’ve covered bold and italic. Now let’s get into a critical tag, the a tag
makes a hyperlink to another web page when you click on it. So we’re going to make a google. com. And guess what, it doesn’t go anywhere. That’s because it doesn’t know where to go. One thing that some tags need is what’s called attributes we’ve defined in a tag. But this a tag doesn’t know enough about itself to know where to go, we know what’s inside
of it. google. com text, but we need to know where to go. So we’re going to add an H ref attribute,
you add an attribute by doing equals. And then a pair of quotes.
And whatever’s inside of the quotes, is setting the H ref. So
Google. com. There you go. And look magically. Now I’m underlined. And I have that purple color. Because I’ve been to google. com before.
And look, I can now go back and forth from Google. com to my web page, all like that. You’re now a web developer. It’s tremendous. So let’s do another tag. And I am g for image. And this one needs to know what the source of the image is. I’ll leave that blank for now. And that’s all an image tag is for the source. I’m going to go look something up on Google.
And let’s just look up an image of Simon cow.
Sure. Everybody loves Simon, right? Why not?
Let’s view image I’m going to copy the URL.
Why won’t you let me close? I don’t know. Okay, my computer’s acting strange, hit save. And look, there we go. google. com link and a nice link to Simon Cal’s web website.
See if I can close this. There we go. So basically, that’s your core tags. Another thing you’ll probably notice is, is these are not coming on to new lines, like we’ve typed them out at first. That doesn’t make sense. And it seems very bad. But later on, you’ll realize it’s very, very good. How he Gmail works is is it does not recognize anything except for how you program it
to go. So unless you say it with tags,
it doesn’t know what to do. And that’s because these things can get huge. Or sometimes they’ll get word wrapping like this.
And it just doesn’t know what to do. So it’s not going to make any guesses for you. If you don’t say line break, which is a br tag, it doesn’t line break. So there we go. I added a br tag. And now it’s bold. Whoops, I want to add another line break. Because
right now, Simon Cowles on the same line as all other friends,
so I’m going to be our
There you go. So now we got this is bold line break. This is a talent, google. com
line break and an image that’s kind of how you start structuring your web page. And you’re probably thinking this is ugly. This doesn’t feel like building a web page. But this is about as complicated as HTML gets. For real, I’m not making it up. HTML is not much more complicated than this. You just have to remember a few tags, a few attributes like H, ref and source and that’s about it. I can show you a few more tags here. Ul is something you’ll use a lot. That stands for an ordered list. Inside this you’ll add allies. So here I’ve added an Li which stands for line item
And now you’ll see we’ve got our you know, I’m getting get rid of Mr. Simon. Nobody likes to see him for very long
anyway. Okay, there we go. So now we’ve got an an ordered list, which by default is just going to display with bullet points
item one item to you can style these a lot of different ways. So you’re going to use the UL a lot anytime you have a list of items you’re going to use a ul with allies inside of it. A drop down allegation is a list items you’ll use ul Li
an actual navigation is a list of items you’ll use ul Li a list of mp3 is and a fake mp3 player online. Ul’s with allies.
Another thing very similar is oh L’s and that’s an and that is ordered list. And that actually by default is going to spit out numbers for each item. You don’t really use this one very often. But it’s helpful to know that it exists.
We’re almost out of tags. Honestly, folks, there’s div tags, which you use a lot, but we’re not going to show you that’s basically for styling. So we’re going to leave it untouched right now
you’ll also use a decent bit. But once again, that is for styling.
So that is about as complicated as HTML gets. All you have to do is get comfortable typing in tags.
And you’re pretty much an HTML developer
paragraph tags. Those are important and header tags. And then we’ll be done pay P is for paragraph. That’s another way to kind of separate text. Let’s say we added this four times
starting to get messy.
And I forgot to close these P and each P and slash up. There we go. So inside of this paragraph, we have this I don’t know what that did right there. inside of this paragraph, we have a block of text for each one. And you’ll see the paragraph automatically kind of created its own space on either side paragraphs are usually the way you’re going to want to add fresh line breaks. Usually you don’t want to use the br tag
like we’re using there.
But it has its purposes as well. br creates a line break as you can see here. And p creates as fresh paragraph with space on either side. The only other tags are going to use our header tags. They start with h depending on how big you want the header to be use h1 for the biggest
smaller than that,
and so on down to about h six or so it’s pretty rare to have headers being in six different sizes. You’re probably pretty bad at design if you’re doing that.
And when it refreshes. There you go big, not so big, not really big. And then we’re down to our normal text. So that is HTML design.
So our next thing we’re going to cover style. So you can actually not feel like a fake developer, you get to feel like a real developer in the next one. As we start to style are things CSS gets a little more complicated. So I’d encourage you take a little time, make some links, make some different web pages and just have fun with HTML for a little while before you move forward internet. Next one, we’re going to do a little bit more advanced HTML and we’re going to do a little bit more style.
