Dynamically Create a List

by kirupa   |  filed under Coding Exercises

Here is another fun exercise for us to work on. The goal is to create the following page:

Here is the twist. While the Toppings header can be specified in HTML, the full list of items you see there needs to be generated entirely using JavaScript. Try to make the styling match the screenshot as well.

Onwards!

Starting Point

The easiest way is to fork the following Codepen pen and start adding your modifications:

See the Pen Coding Exercises Start by Kirupa Chinnathambi (@kirupa) on CodePen.

You may want to open the pen in a new window if you want more space to code your solution or bring up the Console to see the output.

If you prefer developing locally in your favorite code editor (like Visual Studio Code), create a new HTML document and copy/paste the following boilerplate/starting content into it:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
  <meta charset="UTF-8">
  <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
  <title>Coding Exercises Start</title>
</head>
<body>
  <script>
    
  </script>
</body>
</html>

The HTML you see here is just the bare minimum content needed to help us get our web page up and running. The rest of the content is what you will add entirely on your own!

Hint: Some Learning Resources

The following tutorials may provide some helpful tips and techniques to help you with this exercise: Combining Strings and Variables, Creating, Removing, and Cloning DOM Elements, Quickly Adding Many Elements into the DOM
