How to create a simple to-do list with HTML, CSS, and JS

Behzad Ahmad

In order to create a simple to-do list, we have to follow the following four steps:

Step 1: Add HTML

Explanation

  • Line 1: We make a div that acts as a container for our to-do list.

  • Lines 2–5: We make a div for the new task in which the user writes the name of the task, and at the end, it has the “add” button.

  • Line 6: We create a div for the written tasks.

Step 2: Add CSS

Explanation

  • Lines 1–22: We add the styling for the container.

  • Lines 23–58: We add the styling for the tasks input field and the add “Task” button.

  • Lines 59–94: We add the styling for the tasks which we have added.

Step 3: Add JavaScript

Explanation

  • Lines 1–4: We write a function that states that if a user doesn’t enter any task and presses the “Add” button, then an alert message is generated which states that enter the task.

  • Lines 6–16: If the user enters a task, then we have to decide what to do with the task. We use the innerhtml to display all the information on the web page.

  • Lines 18–23: We add a “Delete” button which can be found after every task.

Step 4: Add HTML, CSS, and JavaScript together
