@fuecisla
but that is exactly my point... no API is needed AT ALL, why would the instructor mention that I can use an API if they do not explain what is an API
Jonathan Leon
@Wo1v3r
Oh thats a set message for all the challenges
Borja
@fuecisla
@Wo1v3r yes, that is the one
Jonathan Leon
@Wo1v3r
just ignore it for this one

You don't need an api untill these ones : Build a Random Quote Machine Complete   *

Show the Local Weather Complete   *

Build a Wikipedia Viewer Complete   *

Use the Twitch.tv JSON API Complete   *

Borja
@fuecisla
ok, thanks, in fact I know what an API is, at least what the Acronim means... although I admit that to me is never clear what they mean by API... web API, web service, a software???
Sorin Ruse
@sorinr
@fuecisla first pick a subject. second start laying out you page using html tags you know. third add css style to your html tags to look on page as you want them to look. forth add(but not necessary) some javascript to add interaction to your html elements
Jonathan Leon
@Wo1v3r
Well generally in web development it refers to another service you use to get specific or random information depending on your needs \ user interaction
Borja
@fuecisla
@Wo1v3r thank you

Jonathan Leon
@Wo1v3r
and the API's are defined by the service provider basically as plain as a database for your current needs
Borja
@fuecisla
yeah, I know that is kind of a set of rules they put so you can comunicate with their server and info (at least when talking about web environment). There are APIs that do not have anything to do with the internet
Jonathan Leon
@Wo1v3r
Best tip for later on would be finding a good API by 1. Your needs , 2. The documentation
Borja
@fuecisla
you mean like those provided by google, yahoo and similar
Jonathan Leon
@Wo1v3r
yes for example intents in android is also an API even if theres no http\s requests at all
yes maps,feeds,weather,pictures, whatever :D
Borja
@fuecisla
@Wo1v3r thanks again. I will move on now!

check out my contact page. Which do yall think looks better? I only changed the alignment of where you put your info. 1. http://codepen.io/jdb140430/full/YWOrRk

Jonathan Leon
@Wo1v3r
@jdb140430 placement and sizing is a lil off on wide view
@jdb140430 and I can give you a great link for color schemes if you want to make it more fancy colorhunt.co
Borja
@fuecisla
yep, I would go easier on some colors. Also, I think that the more fancy fonts are usually better for tittles than for text on paragraphs :)
Jeremy Brown
@jdb140430
okay. thanks. yeah usually on chrome it looks good but on internet explorer it's all over the place. do you think that is because I didn't bootstrap?
Sorin Ruse
@sorinr
@jdb140430 you still have to work on that pen. it seems you have no vision yet on how do you want to look your page. its my critical feedback
Borja
@fuecisla
yeah, Jeremy, I think it is better to start always with clean lighter colors and take it from there. Look at google´s page for example, or even FCC pages... just saying that is a good starting point. Like when you are not used to buy suits... you start with a dark gray or blue... you can never get them wrong :))))
Jeremy Brown
@jdb140430
Okay! I don't know why, but at least on my browser I feel like it looks really good with those colors. I am still a little new to html and such. This is good feedback. Thank you. I appreciate constructive criticism
Sorin Ruse
@sorinr
@fuecisla @jdb140430 don't bother too much about colors at first. choosing the right color palette depends also on your page subject. just think on your layout and subjuct. afterwards about color pallets

Hi all
This relates to the random quote machine
I'm having a frustrating time reading JSON files from external sites and I think it's down to my IDE.
See simplified codepen
http://codepen.io/collierd/pen/wWEbKY
This works fine

If I code this in webmatrix, it returns a blank screen
I have had no problems with webmatrix throughout this course
Basically, I prefer this product as it is much easier to develop in

Has anybody else seen this?

Hey, I know this is asking a lot, but I'm having a lot of trouble with my Simon Game. It works fine, except when it hits the third iteration, and then it goes haywire, calling the same function twice without iterating over any of the variables I've set up as a counter. Can anybody help me out here?

@damianpcollier Not sure why this would fail in webmatrix. MS recommends using Visual Studio Code nowadays anyway - have you tried with that IDE and their HTML Previewer plugin?

hello people . i am experiencing a problem with this http://codepen.io/ajayt365/pen/RRYOdk . i set my divs "class=box" height 5%. but it's not displaying the div with background color :red but when i do height:100px , the divs are shown . what is the reason for this ? also there is vertical scroll when i set margin:0 on body . why? please help
Damian Collier
@damianpcollier
@TylerMoeller I haven't tried Visual Studio. I do use that for SQL development. Is that what you use?
Tyler Moeller
@TylerMoeller
@damianpcollier I have switched to Atom because of better linting support - could not get Visual Studio Code to fix on save with eslint, jshint, or jscs.
Sorin Ruse
@sorinr
@ajayt365 just make it <div class="box" id="first">first</div>, ecc for all divs to see whats happening
Damian Collier
@damianpcollier
@TylerMoeller I am wondering whether it's the sites that I am looking at. Just looked at somewhere called forismatic and that seems to work. Tried a number of other sites with no real success

@lukenetti3
Hey guys, probably a simple answer, but how come after I type in a search in my twitch.tv project I can’t then click the buttons to show all or online or offline? Is there some clearing I need to do at the end of my search? Heres my code. http://codepen.io/lukenetti3/pen/yJxWaB?editors=0010
