I hope you must have got an idea about the project.

So,  Let’s start our side Scrollbar Project By Adding The Source Codes. For That, First, We Are Using The Html Code.

Step1: Adding HTML code For Side Scrollbar 

HTML stands for Hyper Text Markup Language, and it provides structure to our website.

ALL HTML documents begin with <!doctype HTML>, which informs the browser that our code adheres to the most recent HTML version.

The HTML document starts with <html> and ends with </html>.

The main tag is <body>, where we will write all of our content that will be displayed on the browser later.

Now we’ll look at our HTML code.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
    <meta name="" content="" />
    <title>Heart</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
  </head>
  <body>
    <header>
        <h1 class="logo">Welcome!</h1>
        <nav>
          <ul class="nav-list">
            <li>
              <a href="#art-1">Article 1</a>
            </li>
            <li>
              <a href="#art-2">Article 2</a>
            </li>
            <li>
              <a href="#art-3">Article 3</a>
            </li>
            <li>
              <a href="#art-4">Article 4</a>
            </li>
            <li>
              <a href="#art-5">Article 5</a>
            </li>
            <li>
              <a href="#art-6">Article 6</a>
            </li>
          </ul>
        </nav>
      </header>
      
      <section class="main">

      </section>
  </body>
</html>

Starting with HTML, we first created a header section that contains our website’s logo and navigation bar. We create our navbar using an unordered list, and then we create another section that contains the content of our webpage, beginning with the main headline of our webpage.

Then, using a “h2” heading and paragraph, we created the random content for our webpage. Similarly, you can try to add your own content to a webpage of your choice.

Let’s take a look at our HTML structure without any styling.

Step2: Adding CSS code For Side Scrollbar  

CSS is an abbreviation for Cascading Style Sheet. CSS will be used to style our webpage so that it looks appealing, and CSS is used to improve the user experience.

Now let’s take a look at our CSS code.

@import url('https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Nunito:wght@400;700&display=swap');
@import url('https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Pacifico&display=swap');
html {
  scrollbar-width: thin;
  scrollbar-color: #34d1bf #070707;
}
html::-webkit-scrollbar {
  width: 1vw;
}
html::-webkit-scrollbar-thumb {
  background-color: #34d1bf;
}
html::-webkit-scrollbar-track {
  background-color: #070707;
}
* {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  box-sizing: border-box;
  
}

html {
  font-size: 100%;
  scroll-behavior: smooth;
}
ul {
  list-style-type: none;
}
ul li {
  margin-top: 0.5em;
}
ul li + li {
  margin-left: 0.8em;
}
a {
  color: #070707;
  text-decoration: none;
  font-size: 18px;
  display: inline-block;
  transition: all 500ms ease-in-out;
}
a:hover {
  transform: translateY(-5px);
  color: #34d1bf;
}
header {
  max-width: 800px;
  margin: 0 auto;
  padding: 1em 0;
  display: flex;
  align-items: center;
  justify-content: space-between;
}
header .nav-list {
  display: flex;
  margin-left: auto;
}
header .logo {
  font-family: "Pacifico", cursive;
  color: #34d1bf;
}
body {
  background: #efefef;
  font-family: 'Nunito', sans-serif;
  color: #070707;
  
}
body .main {
  max-width: 800px;
  margin: 4rem auto;
}
body .main h1 {
  font-size: 30px;
  position: relative;
}
body .main h1::after {
  position: absolute;
  content: '';
  background: #34d1bf;
  width: 120px;
  height: 5px;
  border-radius: 200px;
  bottom: 0px;
  left: 255px;
}
body .main .article {
  margin-top: 3em;
  background: #817f82;
  padding: 2em;
  color: #efefef;
  border-radius: 50px 0px;
  box-shadow: 5px 10px 30px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.33);
}
body .main .article p {
  margin-top: 1em;
}
@media (max-width: 600px) {
  header, .main {
    width: 95%;
    margin: 0 auto;
  }
  h1 {
    font-size: 22px;
  }
  .article h2 {
    font-size: 18px;
  }
  .article p {
    font-size: 14px;
  }
  a {
    font-size: 12px;
  }
}

Now that we’ve included our CSS code in our article, let’s go over it step by step.

Step1: First, we have imported our Google Fonts into the document so that we can use them later on to change the font style of our content . Then we selected the html and set the srollbar width and color with smooth scrollbar property .

5+ HTML CSS project With Source Code

Then using our universal selector  (*), we just selected all our elements and defined margin and padding as zero and box-size as a border box.

@import url('https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Nunito:wght@400;700&display=swap');
@import url('https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Pacifico&display=swap');
html {
  scrollbar-width: thin;
  scrollbar-color: #34d1bf #070707;
}
html::-webkit-scrollbar {
  width: 1vw;
}
html::-webkit-scrollbar-thumb {
  background-color: #34d1bf;
}
html::-webkit-scrollbar-track {
  background-color: #070707;
}
* {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  box-sizing: border-box;
  
}

html {
  font-size: 100%;
  scroll-behavior: smooth;
}

Step2: We chose our ul tag and set the list style type to “none” so that there is no style, then we chose our anchor tag and provided the colour, font size, and transition to our anchor tag. We also added the hover selector to add more styling to our anchor tag. When we hover our cursor over the list items, the colour of the list items changes with the transform property.

ul {
  list-style-type: none;
}
ul li {
  margin-top: 0.5em;
}
ul li + li {
  margin-left: 0.8em;
}
a {
  color: #070707;
  text-decoration: none;
  font-size: 18px;
  display: inline-block;
  transition: all 500ms ease-in-out;
}
a:hover {
  transform: translateY(-5px);
  color: #34d1bf;
}

Step3:Now we’ve selected our body tag, changed the background colour to light gray, and added the colour and font family to the body. We’ve now selected the class (“.main”) within the body and assigned the margin and maximum width to the given class element.Then we selected the article class and provided the backgorund color,padding ,border-radius to our random content in the html.

header .nav-list {
  display: flex;
  margin-left: auto;
}
header .logo {
  font-family: "Pacifico", cursive;
  color: #34d1bf;
}
body {
  background: #efefef;
  font-family: 'Nunito', sans-serif;
  color: #070707;
  
}
body .main {
  max-width: 800px;
  margin: 4rem auto;
}
body .main h1 {
  font-size: 30px;
  position: relative;
}
body .main h1::after {
  position: absolute;
  content: '';
  background: #34d1bf;
  width: 120px;
  height: 5px;
  border-radius: 200px;
  bottom: 0px;
  left: 255px;
}
body .main .article {
  margin-top: 3em;
  background: #817f82;
  padding: 2em;
  color: #efefef;
  border-radius: 50px 0px;
  box-shadow: 5px 10px 30px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.33);
}
body .main .article p {
  margin-top: 1em;
}

Step4: Now we’ll add the main styling to our webpage, which will make it responsive; we’ll add the media query and set the maximum width. If the content width is greater than the defined width, the font sizes of the h1, h2, p and a tag will change depending on the window size.

@media (max-width: 600px) {
  header, .main {
    width: 95%;
    margin: 0 auto;
  }
  h1 {
    font-size: 22px;
  }
  .article h2 {
    font-size: 18px;
  }
  .article p {
    font-size: 14px;
  }
  a {
    font-size: 12px;
  }
}

Now we have completed our css code and below👇here is the output after styling our webpage.
