Make Word Counter Using Html Css Javascript (Source Code)

Make Word Counter Using Html Css Javascript (Source Code)

Welcome to The CodeWithRandom blog. In this article, we create a Word counter project. We use Html, Css, And JavaScript For Word counter code.

I hope you enjoy our blog so let’s start with a basic HTML structure for the Word Counter.

HTML Code For Word Counter

<div class="container">
<h1>Word Counter</h1>
<textarea placeholder="Enter your text here..."></textarea>
<div class="output row">
<div>Characters: <span id="characterCount">0</span></div>
<div>Words: <span id="wordCount">0</span></div>
</div>
<div class="output row">
<div>Sentences: <span id="sentenceCount">0</span></div>
<div>Paragraphs: <span id="paragraphCount">0</span></div>
</div>
<div class="output row">
<div>Reading Time: <span id="readingTime">0</span></div>
<div id="readability">Show readability score.</div>
</div>
<div class="keywords">
Top keywords:
<ul id="topKeywords">
</ul>
</div>
</div>

This is all code for our Word counter project. We use only html code for this word counter basic structure. You can see output without css and JavaScript. Then we write css to style our word counter project and then give complete functionality using JavaScript.
