Random Quote Generator using HTML, CSS and JavaScript – Coding Torque

Share your love

Welcome to Coding Torque. In this blog, we are going to create a Random Quote Generator using HTML, CSS & JavaScript. You should create this project if you are a beginner and learning JavaScript. In this app, I have simply used an API to fetch quotes randomly and displayed them using JavaScript DOM functions.

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

1.Ā Snake Game using JavaScript

2.Ā 2D Bouncing Ball Game using JavaScript

3.Ā Rock Paper Scissor Game using JavaScript

4.Ā 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.



Starter Template

<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">

    <title>Random Quotes Generator using JavaScript with Source Code - @code.scientist x @codingtorque</title>

    <-- Further code here -->

Paste the below code in your <body> tag

<div class="container">
    <h2>Random Quote</h2>
    <p id="quote">"A thing well said will be wit in all languages."
    <p id="author">- John Dryden</p>

    <button onclick="generateQuote()" class="generateBtn"><i class="fas fa-sync"></i></button>
