Introduction: How to Create a Simple Web Page Using Brackets for Beginners
Note: - All HTML tags should be in between brackets: < >
Step 1: Download the Software
download Brackets from this website http://brackets.io/.
Step 2: Open Brackets
open downloaded Brackets software on a computer.
Step 3: Create a New File
After opening Brackets, Click on the file icon on the top left of the window, then click new, you will see new file “Untitled”.
Step 4: Save As.. the File
Right click on this file’ untitled’, click save as, then you should save it on a drive
at this point you can give any name to the file, just make sure after the name to add “.html” (dot html).
Step 5: Start With DOCTYPE Tag
Every html page must start with the following structure tag <!DOCTYPE HTML> It tells the browser what ‘rules to follow’ when rendering an HTML page.
Step 6: HTML Tag
< html> and < /html> - those tags are to start and end a document.
Step 7: Head and Body Tags
In between html tags, write < head> and <\head>, where it contains ‘behind the scenes’ stuff. Also, write < body> and <\body> where it contains text, images, video, audio and so on.
Step 8: Meta Tag
In between < head> tags, write < meta charset= utf-8 > where it provides such information as search engine terms or character encoding.
Step 9: Title Tag
In between <head> tags, under < meta>, write < title> and <\ title>. So, anything you write in between, you will see it at the top of the browser window and this tag is important for search engine. For example, I’m going to write “WRD 204”
Step 10: Adding Paragraph Using P Tag
In between < body> write any information you want to be seen on a web page, like picture, audio, video and paragraph for instance, for my example I’m going to write a paragraph by using this tags for paragraph : <p> and <\p>.
Step 11: See Your Results
In order to see your results: first right click on the file and click “save” than click on a “live preview” icon on a top right corner.
Note: - anytime you make change and you want to see the result, first, you must save the file, you can use shortcut “Ctrl + S”
Step 12: Change the Formatting
If you want to change the size of text format, use < h1> </h1>as the largest heading or < h6> </h6> is the smallest. In my example I will use <h4> </h4>.
Step 13: Single/Double Line Break Tag
If you want to make a single/double line break between paragraphs, use tag <br>
Step 14: Conclusion
Congratulations! now you can start building your own web page.
