Java-Script: The UI Language
Animations, designs have halted the human's eyes for a while. How long we have relished colors? Since, ever. Anything that's more than mere colors but engaging animations, comely objects, and vivid backgrounds have our eyes.
The industry has created a whole separate domain extolling the efforts of the developers who are somewhat liable for all this. Yes, talking about the blooming facet of UI/UX. The user interface is a bridge linking the user and developer. Undoubtedly, the more striking the bridge is more users would like to come over it. For instance, let us say there are the following two web pages you came across. Which among them strikes you more than the other?
I believe the answer is the first one. What overpowers in the web page one that the second one eventually could not? Is the background color? Is it the pictures that we find missing in the second one? Maybe the icons or the menu tab that got your eyes?
In precise, the user interface of web-page one has a higher hand than the other. Let us know what are those things which give a better user-interface experience?
What is UI?
What is HTML?
HTML is an acronym for HyperText Markup Language. The word Hyper Text was coined back in the 1960s by Ted Nelson. Typically a text is known as hypertext when it contains more than just text. It may contain buttons, links, a bar, and everything you might observe in a typical webpage. A computer language that consists of easily understood keywords, names, or tags that help format the overall view of a page and the data it contains is a markup language. Any page you access through a browser contains hypertext written in a markup language, that is an HTML page.
What is CSS?
As long as we know that to make a page browser-accessible it must be an HTML page. But who doesn't like styling be it styling a page? The concept of styling an HTML page dates back to the 2000s when the idea of CSS ( Cascading Style Sheets) was proposed by W3C. The idea was to reduce the burden and expense of individual styling fonts, color in a big website.CSS removed the style formatting from the HTML page. The purpose of CSS is to provide Web developers with a standard way to define, apply, and manage sets of style characteristics.
So far we know the purpose of CSS and HTML. That’s wasn’t enough. We still required animations and something that would glue all the components of a webpage together. This bridge could help the components of the page to interact with each other and create some amazing results. Wanting for something this amazing, Brendan Eich in 1995 came up with a language that was designed so that the ‘non-programmers’ can also wash their hands over it.
