HTML SECTION For Random Quote Generator

Here I’m not going to add a structure of the HTML file from scratch, I will just paste the body part, it is so because the body is the main part of our designing a browser.

We have the following part in the HTML section.

First, we have a class with a class container quote frame that will enclose all the parts of designing within it.
Then in the first container, we have a div with a class quote that has an inverted comma at the starting of a quote that will easily identify you it is a quote.

then we have a button with displays the text new quote on the left side and in the left side we have icons of Twitter and Facebook it is just a part of UI design t that if you like to share on this social channel then you can do it easily.
Go through the below code and run it in your IDE or where you used to design just HTML without CSS styling.

generate a new random quote
generate a random color for background
enable sharing buttons for twitter (half enabled) and tumbler
<div class="container quoteFrame">
    <div class="quote">
    <p><i class="fa fa-quote-left"></i>
            <span id="quoteText">Problems worthy of attack prove their worth by fighting back.</span></p>
            <footer class="blockquote-footer"><span id="quoteAuthor">Someone Famous</span></footer>
    <div class="buttons">
            <div class="btn btn-primary">
                <a id="shareTwitter" href="#"><i class="fa fa-twitter"></i></a>
            <div class="btn btn-primary">
                <a id="shareTumblr" href="#"><i class="fa fa-tumblr"></i></a>
      <a id="getNewQuote" class="btn btn-primary" style="float:right;">New quote</a>
<div class="footer text-center">
    <p class="smaller">by <a href="https://codepen.io/tonalmasher/">aram</a></p>

CSS SECTION For Random Quote Generator

By CSS we will design our container and will bring it to the center and then we will set the width of the quote area and will bring it after the border and we will design clickable buttons and social feed icon and will place it on the left and right side of the container as per above project preview image.

The Below code will analyze you more. So just add in your HTML half-complete file and wait to watch some magic.

* To change colors you target  --main-bg-color in: html

html {
  --main-bg-color: #9003fc;

body {
  background-color:  var(--main-bg-color);
  font-family: Raleway;

.quoteFrame {
  border-radius: 3px;
  position: relative;
  margin: 8% auto auto auto;
  max-width: 550px;
  padding: 40px 50px;
  display: table;
  background-color: #fff;

.quoteFrame p {
  text-align: center;
  font-weight: 500;
  font-size: 1.75em;

.quoteFrame footer {
  text-align: right;
  padding-top: 10px;

.buttons {
  padding-top: 20px;

.btn, .btn:hover {
  background-color: var(--main-bg-color);
  border-color: var(--main-bg-color);

.btn:hover {
  opacity: 0.8;

.fa {
  color: var(--main-bg-color);

.quoteFrame .buttons a, .quoteFrame .buttons a:hover  {
  color: white;

.fa-twitter, .fa-tumblr {
  color: white;
  font-size: 18px;

.smaller {
    padding-top: 1rem;
    font-size: 12px;
    color: white;

.smaller a:visited {
    color: white;

JAVASCRIPT SECTION For Random Quote Generator

In the Javascript part, the main part you should note that we are using API because it’s a random generator quote and we don’t want our quote to shuffle between a few placed quotes only so we have used API here.

So, by this, we do the following part only as:-
On clicking the new quote button it will shuffle the displayed quote.
By shuffle quote, our background color will be also changed, this is an interesting part must check it out.

For observing this magic for this project then you should add the js file with the rest of the HTML and CSS file and enjoy this project and deploy it on Github.

$(document).ready(function() { 
  $("#getNewQuote").on("click", function(){    
    /* request from forismatic API */
        var source= "https://api.forismatic.com/api/1.0/?method=getQuote&lang=en&format=jsonp&jsonp=?";
    $.getJSON(source, function(response) {
       /* Change the text inside of #currentQuote*/
            var forismaticResponse = JSON.stringify(response);
            /* convert the stringify result into an object */
            var newQuote = JSON.parse(forismaticResponse);
            $("#shareTwitter").html("<a id='shareTwitter' href='https://www.twitter.com/share?url=" + newQuote.quoteLink + "&text=" + newQuote.quoteText + "'" + "target='_blank'><i class='fa fa-twitter'></i></a>");
            $("#shareTumblr").html("<a id='shareTumblr' href='https://www.tumblr.com/share?url=" + newQuote.quoteLink + "'" + "target='_blank'><i class='fa fa-tumblr'></i></a>");
                /* Random color generater code from https://stackoverflow.com/questions/5092808/how-do-i-randomly-generate-html-hex-color-codes-using-javascript */
            $("html").css("--main-bg-color", function(){
                var color = '#'+(Math.random()*0xFFFFFF<<0).toString(16); 
                if ( color == '#ffffff'){
                    return '#f1f1f1';
                } else return color;
