Finally figured out how to add a greeting that changes depending on the time to my portfolio website! Check it out:
I did this by using the .getElementById and .textContent methods to replace the text I had in my original sans-JS greeting. Pretty proud to have incorporated my first JS code into an actual project.
A script is a series of instructions.
A statement is a set of instructions that ends with a semicolon.
Statements can be organized into code blocks which begin and end with curly braces.
You can make comments in JS with // (for single-line comments) and /* Blablah*/ (for multi-line comments)
Comments make your code easier to read.
Variables store information a script needs.
You declare a variable with the var keyword.
Use camelCase for naming variables.
Data Types (covered so far):
Strings: “HI”, “1”, “July”
Booleans: true or false.
Arrays: [“one”, “two”, “three”], [1, 2, 3]
You can do math with operators.
