Glitch — each app can remixed to you account and then you can make changes. These ‘apps’ are boilerplate or template code and you can add on it instead of starting from scratch. This process helps us save time and quickly get started without needing to worry about installation and setup.
Now that we have our project and we can see it live on the browser, any changes we make to index.html will automatically show up on ‘show live’ tab.
Change the top left to your name and Let’s start making changes inside index.hml. All Web pages are broken down into three main sections — <HEADER> <BODY> <FOOTER>.
Based on where each section is we will simply change the text in between the html tags.
HEADER — Now change your Name and your skills.
BODY — Let’s Change About me section.
FOOTER — Same as above, lets add some links to facebook or linkedin.
If you need to find where the html tags are — on google chrome ‘Right click’ > click ‘Inspect’ — It open console to view html in browser
That’s all Folks! ☮️
By using all the html tags and bootstrap theme — we can simply change texts in between and have professional looking site that is mobile friendly with nice clean design.
