Share your love

Welcome to Coding Torque. In this blog, we are going to create a Gradient Color Generator using HTML, CSS and JavaScript. You should create this project if you are a beginner and learning JavaScript. In this project, two color inputs are grabbed on changed using javascript and the gradient is generated.

Before we start, here are some JavaScript Games you might like to create:

1. Snake Game using JavaScript

2. 2D Bouncing Ball Game using JavaScript

3. Rock Paper Scissor Game using JavaScript

4. Tic Tac Toe Game using JavaScript

5. Whack a Mole Game using JavaScript

 

I would recommend you don’t just copy and paste the code, just look at the code and type by understanding it.
