The World of JavaScript Makes The Internet A More Interactive Place

website development

Sharing is caring!

The programming world, is indeed a different type of a world, when you compare it with other worlds in the universe.

However, there is definitely a heaven and a hell, which can fill very real, when you experience one or the other. These are other worlds, anyway back to the fact of the matter.

In general, when you want to develop an application, you have to be able to think clearly about the purpose of your application, to write your code and before you even begin to write your code, you need to have a clear picture, of what you want to do develop with your application.

If you don’t think about what you will be coding, then you can forget it

You won’t be able to write a useful application, because you don’t have a purpose in mind.

In today’s article, we will be discussing JavaScript, and how important, this language is for website development

As a cross-platform, object-oriented scripting language; JavaScript is a small and lightweight language.

JavaScript is able to provide programmatic control over the object of its environment, when it is used inside a host environment, such as a web browser, by connecting to them.

A standard library of objects, such as Array, Date and Math is always part of JavaScript.

Also a core set of language elements; such as operators, control structures and statements, and are also part of the JavaScript programming language.

Objects in the client side and server side

A lot of these objects can be supplemented to JavaScript, to extend its core for a variety of purposes.

The ability to control a browser and its Document Object Model (DOM), is part of the main purpose of JavaScript, which is able to accomplish this, thanks to its extension to the core of JavaScript.

The client-side supplied object, to JavaScript, allows it to give front-end website developers, the ability to control the browser.

If a designer for example, would like to place elements on an HTML form and respond to user events, such as mouse clicks, form input and page navigation; then a designer can use client-side extensions, in order to accomplish this task.

The Server-side can also be extended

At the core of JavaScript a website front-end developer can accomplish server side tasks with JavaScript, by supplying objects which are relevant to running JavaScript on a server.

JavaScript can be extended on the server-side, for example, to allow an application to communicate with a database, to provide continuity of information from one invocation to another of the application, or perform file manipulation on a server.

JavaScript resides inside HTML documents, and can provide levels of interactivity, to web pages that are not achievable with simple HTML.

JavaScript is used most times in combination with some of the website technologies

Some of these website technologies are HTML, CSS and AJAX so that you can accomplish the task, which you have in front of you.

Another thing you have to remember is that not all browsers will respond the same way; therefore, you need to be able to write your JavaScript code, in all of the browsers which exit today.

JavaScript is able to run, in most modern browsers though, so you don’t have to worry about too much of these changes.

The difference can be painful, to overcome sometimes too, because JavaScript is an object oriented, and a procedural programming language and can be hard to understand.

It can be used to control web pages on the client side of the browser, server-side programs and even mobile applications.
