Some context

As a web developer, you will be creatings lots and lots of dynamic HTML using Javascript based algorithms.

In this exercise you have to create the HTML code needed to render a profile card based on a series of variables that could change in value during runtime. Here is an example of the profile card:

Conditional Profile Card

Inside the src/app.js file there is a render function that receives variables and contains the logic to create most of the website HTML code.

function render(variables = {}) { document.querySelector("#widget_content").innerHTML = `<div>Website code</div>`; }

You can see the variables that are being generated by typing on the developer console:

console.log(window.variables); /* { includeCover: true, // if includeCover is true the algorithm should background: "https://images.unsplash.com/photo-1511974035430-5de47d3b95da", // this is the url of the image that will used as background for the profile cover avatarURL: "https://randomuser.me/api/portraits/women/42.jpg", // this is the url for the profile avatar socialMediaPosition: "left", // social media bar position (left or right) twitter: null, // social media usernames github: "alesanchezr", linkedin: null, instagram: null, name: null, lastname: null, role: null, country: null, city: null } */ `

📝Instructions

These instructions come with a video for better understanding: https://youtu.be/gaVm8eyCqlM

  1. Read and understand the render function and the value of the variables variable that it receives.
  2. Change the content of the render function to make it render the variables on the card.
