Create A Todo List App in HTML CSS & JavaScript

In this article you will learn how to create Todo List using JavaScript. JavaScript Todo List helps you create a list of things you want to do throughout the day.
Suppose you want to do something throughout the day that you can list here. Whenever you complete that task then you can delete it.
Do you often feel overwhelmed by the amount of work you have to do? Do you find yourself missing deadlines? Or do you sometimes just forget to do something important, so that people have to chase you to get work done?
All of these are symptoms of not keeping a proper “To-Do List.” These are prioritized lists of all the tasks that you need to carry out. They list everything that you have to do, with the most important tasks at the top of the list, and the least important tasks at the bottom.
To-do lists are essential if you’re going to beat work overload. When you don’t use them effectively, you’ll appear unfocused and unreliable to the people around you.
In order to create a simple Todo list using JavaScript, we have to follow the following steps:
First we will create the interface of Todo list, we will do something simple, using only HTML.

HTML CODE

<h1>TODO list by Ninja</h1>

<form name="form_main">
  <label for="task">Add new task: </label> 
  <input type="text" name="task" id="task" /> <br />
  <button type="button" onclick="add()">Add</button>
</form>

<fieldset>
  <legend>task:</legend>
  <ul>
    <li>Comment</li>
    <li>Share This Blog</li>
  </ul>
</fieldset>

In the HTML structure an input was created to receive our task and a button was also created that triggers theadd() function in Todo list.

First I created a box on the webpage and then I created an input place to input. You will input something in that place and then you can add that text in the list with the help of add button next to it.

We will also need a CSS class to give a ‘ ̶s̶t̶r̶e̶a̶k̶y̶’ effect to completed tasks.

.checked {

The checked class is used only to define text as ‘ ̶s̶t̶r̶e̶a̶k̶y̶’ when completing a task.

Now let’s create the add() function for Todo list.

JS code

function createCloseButton(li) {
  let span = document.createElement("SPAN");
  let txt = document.createTextNode("\u00D7");

  span.className = "close";
  span.appendChild(txt);
  li.appendChild(span);

  span.onclick = () => span.parentElement.style.display = "none";
}

document.querySelectorAll('li').forEach(createCloseButton);

document.querySelector('ul').addEventListener('click', (e) => {
  if (e.target.tagName === 'LI')
    e.target.classList.toggle('checked');
});

function add() {
  let li = document.createElement('LI');
  let input_value = document.form_main.task.value;
  let input_text = document.createTextNode(input_value);

  li.appendChild(input_text);
  document.querySelector('ul').appendChild(li);
  document.form_main.task.value = "";

  createCloseButton(li);
}

The add() function creates a new element (task) in the list.

Within the add() function, a call is made to the createCloseButton() function, which is the function we are going to create now.

In the createCloseButton function we create a span with an x, which when clicking the element is hidden in Todo list.

As the list is already with some items we will create a loop to go through all the li and add the close button.

Finally, we will add a click event to all li, and when clicking add the class checked.
