Programming by Chyfrankjnr01: 9:32pm On Feb 27, 2022
I started programming recently, downloaded the visual studio code but after running a simple HTML program it didn't show my work (output) or error.
What's is the problem, how can I resolve the issue.
Please it's my first time here

Everything is wrong with your code. From your file naming, HTML broiler plate, CSS, everything is Wrong


First, you need to create a file on VScode and let the file end with .html with no spaces in between the text. For example

my firstpage.html = wrong naming

myfirstpage.html = right naming


After creating the file, type html and VScode will show you an option click on it and you will end up with something similar to this:


<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
<meta charset="UTF-8">
<title>Page title</title>
</head>
<body>

</body>
</html>


Then you can write your code in between the body tags.
You are better of watching a youtube video. Just type "html for beginners" on youtube and follow any videos tutorial.

Hey, programming can be quite confusing. And you need to take it bit by bit. You have to carefully select your materials because there are some information that you don't need.

What are you trying to do? HTML is meant to run on the web browser. Are you trying to execute HTML in the terminal like a programming language?
Go to the vscode extension market and download the live server extension and enable it globally.
Always ensure your HTML file is saved inside a folder. Then open the folder in vscode, open the HTML file and click on start live server which should now be in the bottom task bar if you downloaded it.
Live server automatically opens up a browser tab and renders your HTML.

When saving the file make sure that you add the extension E.G file.html

I will start with
1. create folder in VSCode
2. go to extension and download live server(you will be using this to be viewing what you are designing)
3. open the folder with live server(by right clicking and choose the option "open with live server")
4. if you open it just type ! it will display from declaration to the HTML closing tag

Use replit.com instead, it's an online IDE. Believe me, once you try it out you will not feel the need to write web dev code on your local machine again.
