Which is the Best Application for Writing Code?

When starting to code you need somewhere to write it; there are many different applications for this but we recommend Sublime Text. We choose this application because it is easy to use, and it has shortcuts for certain code. If you want to learn how to install Sublime Text, click here.

How to Install Sublime Text

Firstly, you will need to select the operating system you are on.

Then, in the bottom left hand corner you will find sublime starting to download. Once it is downloaded you will need to open it and it should show:

When this has popped up, click next.

After that, click install and when it is fully installed you are ready to go!

Structure

When you are making a website from scratch you need to know how to form a website in the backend. So, you will need to open sublime and make a new file by either pressing ctrl + N or file > new file. Once you have done that you need to save your new file by going to file > save as or ctrl + S and name it what you like but at the end you need to add .html, for example Home.html; this lets your browser know this file is a html document.

In every new file you create it must follow a basic structure of:

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>

<head>

<title></title>

</head>

<body>

</body>

</html>

In the body you put content, for example you would put images, videos and text in there and in the head, you would put metadata in.

Instead of writing all of this into Sublime you can just type html + tab.

What are HTML Tags?

HTML tags are hidden keywords in the back-end of a website that will determine the structure and layout of a website. Tags have two sections an opening and an ending, this would look like <tag name></tag name>. An example of a tag is <strong></strong>which would make any text inside of this tag bold. Throughout this course you will learn what most tags do and how you use them with HTML. If you have any further questions contact us.
