Can you create a website using the installed notepad in your computer?

I just known that every computer contains notepad,though im not sure if each one has. So im curious if you can create even a simple website for practice?(or you can use the notepad to play and experiment things using html) I never use any text editor yet, so im wondering if its looks like what in the code here in solo learn the html, css and javascript are seperated

Good for a pretty basic website.

Yep, as long as you save your file types correctly. In example, lets say you have a project folder named “testsite”. inside the folder you would normally have: index.html style.css script.js Though all you really need is the index.html (browsers such as Chrome or IE will open .html files as websites!). By default, notepad will save as a text extension, such as (default.txt). As long as you change the extention “.txt” to the appropriate file type (such as .html) then you can use whatever text editor you would like to edit the file. Notepad is just an editor, a text editor, Visual Studio and Atom or PHP Storm, theyre just really beefed up text editors tuned to make coding easier for you. This is different from programs that compile languages down to lower levels of code (such as Eclipse, which will compile java). HTML CSS and Javascript aren’t compiled, at least not in that way. That’s the browser’s job, but that’s a different topic. Hope this helps.

For simple websites yes. I recommend installing Visual Studio Code, Atom, Sublime text or Notepad++ all free. Save yourself some time and headaches! You have to create the individual html/css/js files seperatly with any of these options. Unless you inline style and code your css/js.

Pure HTML 🤔

Yes, as long as u have somewhere were u can type text and save it as .html u can make a website. Such as in my phone (´・ω・`)

Here, use <style> for css and <script> for linking JavaScrpt. Then, save the code as .htm or .html then run the code with your web browser!

of course you can create..but its for asimple website that doesn't have a table, animation...something like that. but if you want add those U have to use other than your installed notepad. if u use windows you should download and use notrpad++

This used to be my first steps in web development 😣

Notepad is perfectly adequate for coding HTML and CSS. I used it as a beginner so I could rely on my eyes rather than an editor to find misspellings and bugs. It is a lot more difficult that way, but it does train you to be very detail-oriented. That said, I would suggest using a free code editor like Microsoft Visual Studio Code, Atom, Brackets, or one of the others mentioned above because it can save a lot of time. But if you are just beginning take a few days and work with Notepad then switch over.

Yes you simply can even when you are offline and even without downloading any type of kit or compiler for it and notepad is specifically used mostly by beginners

Sí se puede, aunque es mejor utilizar editores, ya que dependiendo del tamaño de tu sitio, en otros editores tendrás por ejemplo sugerencias de comandos, indentaciones, etc. Además está el Notepad++ que es mejor versión que el normal de Windows. Saludos.
