Top 10 JavaScript Projects for Beginners

Hey there! I am Hitik Saini, a Full Stack Web Developer and more from Uttarakhand, India.

Today I am going to write my first Blog(story) on this platform and I chose it to be a basic one. As you are clever enough to know that what this article holds let’s get the things started.

JavaScript for Web Developers

The language that powers the web by BRENDAN EICH. He first named it LiveScript, later some called it Jscript therefore ECMASCRIPT(Europeans standardised it) and the name became official in 1997. ECMAScript is often abbreviated to ES. We can use the Google Chrome browser as our development environment, because of the excellent developer tools it provides and is awesome to use.

It is a scripting language that enables you to create dynamically updating content, control multimedia, animate images, and pretty much everything else. (Okay, not everything, but it is amazing what you can achieve with a few lines of JavaScript code.)

Web Developers use this languages for multiple purpose like to code logical functionality for websites or to do server side coding (NodeJS is a good example for this)

Top 10 Projects to learn JavaScript as a beginner

All of these projects are very basic to try and will give you insights of the actual JavaScript which is used in Web Development.

To be honest you will get the code for most of them on the internet but it is my personal recommendation that even if you copy the code you should know the working of each and every line of the .js file you’ve copied. Moreover I will provide you my GitHub repository link where in I am re-coding these 10 projects again with proper comments so that a newbie can also understand the code. Also I will only brief you out here as the explanation part is done over repositories. So just take the idea first and start developing on your own at first place and then refer to the code if you stuck somewhere.

Tip : It is also recommended not to hurry and get all these projects done in hurry, take your time, learn by doing, keep a goal for doing 2 projects in one week or whatever suits with you.

1. JavaScript Stopwatch

An interactive timer for personal use while you are on PC, which runs in browser tab to record your activity. I have made it live using GitHub Pages, check it out: https://hitiksaini.github.io/Stopwatch/

Check the code on GitHub: https://github.com/hitiksaini/Stopwatch

2. Breakout Game

These games are in which the player must smash a wall of bricks by deflecting a bouncing ball with a paddle. The paddle may move horizontally and is controlled with the controller, the computer’s mouse or the touch of a finger (in the case of touchscreen). See it here: https://hitiksaini.github.io/Brick-Breaker-Game/

3. JavaScript Calculator

It does not need an introduction, we all have coded a mini calculator in some programming language like C++, Python etc,. But in case of JavaScript it is a bit different because we can manage the output as a webpage and not like the traditional terminal outputs.

4. JavaScript Quiz

“How do I make a JavaScript quiz?” is one of the most common questions asked by people learning web development, and for good reason. Quizzes are fun! They’re a great way of learning about new subjects, and they allow you to engage your audience with something fun and playful. Don’t forget to play with the code and try something new. See the code over repository and see the hosted code here: https://hitiksaini.github.io/quiz/

PLAY IT! I’ve selected some good GK Questions for you.😎

5. Guess the Number Game

It is a fun educational game that challenges you to find a number based on greater than or less than feedback. Everything is well explained as comments in .js file. You will have 10 guesses to randomly guess a number between 1–500 you win of you do it under 10 attempt. Play it here: https://hitiksaini.github.io/Guess-the-number/

Check the code on GitHub: https://github.com/hitiksaini/Guess-the-number

And as I committed earlier in this story that I will share a GitHub link where you can find more projects like these moreover you can create a PR(a term used in GitHub for pull requests) for better projects. Therefore,

6.. 7.. 8.. 9.. 10.. and more projects like these on my repository made for the sole purpose of getting started with JS, give it a star/fork

Thank you! I don’t know how this will go but do let me know how I was at my first attempt :)
