In this tutorial we will create a Generate Website Link using JavaScript. This code will dynamically generate a website url when the user submit the form inputs. The code use onclick() to call a method that will dynamically generate url link using createElement() to create an element, then appendChild() to append as a child of the created element. This is a free user-friendly kind of program, you can modify it and apply to your working application.

We will be using JavaScript as a server-side scripting language because It allows greater control of your web page behavior than HTML alone. It is embedded in HTML that responsible to allow user to interact with the computer .

Getting started:

First you have to download bootstrap framework, this is the link for the bootstrap that I used for the layout design https://getbootstrap.com/.

The Main Interface

This code contains the interface of the application. To create this just write these block of code inside the text editor and save this as index.html.

  1. <!DOCTYPE html>
  2. <html lang="en">
  3. <meta charset="UTF-8" name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1"/>
  4. <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/bootstrap.css"/>
  5. <nav class="navbar navbar-default">
  6. <div class="container-fluid">
  7. <a class="navbar-brand" href="<a href="https://sourcecodester.com">Sourcecodester</a>
  8. " rel="nofollow">https://sourcecodester.com">Sourcecodester</a>
  9. </a> </div>
  10. </nav>
  11. <div class="col-md-3"></div>
  12. <div class="col-md-6 well">
  13. <h3 class="text-primary">JavaScript - Generate Website Link</h3>
  14. <hr style="border-top:1px dotted #ccc;"/>
  15. <div class="col-md-4">
  16. <div class="form-group">
  17. <input type="text" placeholder="Website" id="website" class="form-control"/>
  18. <br />
  19. <input type="text" placeholder="Link" id="link" class="form-control"/>
  20. <h5>Example:</h5>
  21. <h6>google.com, facebook.com, etc...</h6>
  22. </div>
  23. <center><button type="button" onclick="generate();" class="btn btn-success"><span class="glyphicon glyphicon-link"></span> Generate Link</button></center>
  24. </div>
  25. <div class="col-md-8">
  26. <h4>Website Links</h4>
  27. <ul id="result"></ul>
  28. </div>
  29. </div>
  30. <script src="js/script.js"></script>
  31. </body>
  32. </html>

Creating the Script

This code contains the script of the application. This code will dynamically generate website link when the button is clicked. To do this just copy and write these block of codes inside the text editor, then save it as script.js inside the js folder.

  1. function generate(){
  2. var website = document.getElementById('website').value;
  3. var link = document.getElementById('link').value;
  4. if(website == "" || link == ""){
  5. alert("Please enter something first");
  6. }else{
  7. var a=document.createElement('a');
  8. var list=document.createElement('li');
  9.  
  10. a.textContent=website;
  11. a.setAttribute("href", "https://"+link);
  12. a.setAttribute("target", "_blank");
  13. list.appendChild(a);
  14.  
  15. document.getElementById('result').appendChild(list);
  16. document.getElementById('website').value=""
  17. document.getElementById('link').value=""
  18. }
  19. }

There you have it we successfully created a Generate Website Link using JavaScript. I hope that this simple tutorial help you to what you are looking for. For more updates and tutorials just kindly visit this site. Enjoy Coding!
