In this project you will learn how to change your website styles during the runtime using VanillaJS (plain normal js).
Create an algorithm that randomly builds a card on every refresh:
Every time the website refreshes a new random card needs to show.
The card must have one of the possible suits: Hearts, Spades, Clubs and Diamonds.
The card value must be one of the following: 1 to 10, King, Queen, Jack or Ace, (no joker).
In the end, the project needs to look similar to this demo.
Do not clone this repository.
The first step to start coding is cloning the vanilla.js boilerplate on your local computer or gitpod.
a) If using Gitpod (recommended) you can clone the boilerplate by clicking here.
b) If working locally type the following command from your command line:
Remember to create a new repository, update the remote (
git remote set-url origin <your new url>), and upload the code to your new repository using
Remember that the first event of a website lifecycle is onLoad (your code starts running there). You should generate a random number between 1 and 4 to pick a suit and another random number between 0 and 12 to pick a card number.
Create a general .card class that applies the general styles to each card, and one additional CSS class for each suit: .spade, .club, .heart & .diamond.
Apply the .card class to the entire div but only apply one of the suit classes at a time, depending on what suit you want to apply. For example, a 3 of Hearts will have this HTML declaration:
The following requirements are not needed to sucessfully finish this project, but you can try and challenge yourself!
+1 Add a button that generates a new card when clicked.
+1 Add a timer that generates a new card every 10 seconds.
+1 Allow the user to specify the card weight and height using text inputs.
