For the past few days, I have been working on this countdown. I spent over 7 hours working on my project, and this project is my biggest yet. It is mobile friendly and I will add more countdowns to this website soon!
3+ countdowns with milliseconds
Nice looking and clean interface
Hundreds of lines of code in Js, Css, and Html.
MORE COUNTDOWNS TO BE ADDED!
View it here: https://www.freecountdown.cf instead of the small version.
Happy thanksgiving everyone! :D
Upvote if you liked it, Downvote if you hated it.
edit: please no hate on this thing, im only 10. You can post suggestions in the comments if you want.
Now, as you did say you were young and not great at web development, I'd suggest learning more.
To start, MDN has a full course/tutorial:
If you're insistent in using HTML and CSS, it doesn't hurt to know more:
I see plenty of new JS users use
.innerHTML; I have no clue where it comes from, and I doubt anyone using it knows what they're doing at all.
Please, avoid it like the plague.
MDN's documentation on
After reading it yourself, you'll probably understand why I would suggest one of these instead:
Now, I'm not hating on you specifically, as I believe that anyone could learn if they are taught well.
the depths of hell W3Schools, I'd recommend looking elsewhere:
I had made a joke, only HTML goes:
And it happened here, I'm dying. (btw the article is almost done, you'll be pinged in the credits for helping)
@MatthewDoan3 Lol, no pun intended.
Okay, so here's the thing,
innerHTML should be avoided like the plague.
COVID should be avoided too!
Yet... neither of them are, and it's not turning out good for anyone involved.
The best I can do is put on my mask and teach the best prgramming practices.
I made an optimized version of this. Just like you, I'm not a professional coder, but I tried my best. Here's the list of improvements and features I added (for now):
- Removed milliseconds because GODDAMN they make your browser lag
- OBS Mode! To embed countdowns into your stream without going insane. For now it only supports 3 holidays (Hanukkah, Christmas and New Year) but that's because I want to get this out as early as possible because it's New Years Day today. Also, I know the link to OBS Mode is in an awkward position, but as I said, I'm no professional in web design.
- Fixed an error where the console would spit out errors every second
- Fixed some small inconsistencies (like Hanukkah not being capitalized)
More stuff is coming soon, but I'm trying to get this out as early as possible, so not much stuff has been added yet.
Click here to view the source code or click here to visit the website. It doesn't have a custom domain yet, but I'll add one in the future. Please don't take this as a better version of FreeCountdown or as an opposing countdown website, but rather take this as some improvements you could make to FreeCountdown.
First of all, thank you so much for all the upvotes on this thing! :D
Second of all, the custom domain was free, so I didn't need to pay anything.
Third of all, @Bookie0 's birthday is on there because he asked me. Sorry but I won't make any more birthdays because i'm really busy.
Fourth of all, If it says NaN try:
Using chrome instead of safari, firefox, edge, etc
Reload the page after your do the three.
If it still doesn't work maybe try using another computer.
@duck132912 I got my domain myself from freenom, but they only offer 5 different domain names. I used cf. You can see @FeixuRuins comment below to see what domains they offer. You can also purchase .com and other domains for other prices, but I took the free version. I used .cf because it's free. Check it out at freenom.com
Is this a joke? Surly it’s not a joke, you spent money on a domain name, but then again, NAN, NANS, is either a joke or it is not tested for safari
Why is there only 8 hours till thanksgiving when its gone a montha ago. Other than thet nice web 😊
