Word Counter Html Css Javascript Code | Word Count Javascript Project

Welcome🎉 to Code With Random blog. This blog teaches us how we create a Word Counter.  We use HTML, Css, and javascript for the Word Counter. I hope you enjoy our blog so let’s start with a basic HTML structure for the Word Counter. 

HTML Code

<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>

There is all the HTML code for the Word Counter. Now, you can see an output with a Word Counter then we write javascript for the Word Counter.
