Build a static website
Our assignments are going to be built around building a blog from the ground up and eventually hosting your blog in the cloud. For this first assignment, you are going to take the content that is in the raw_content folder and build a blog out of it.
You will use HTML and CSS to build a static web page using the content that is provided in the link below. The content contains five blog articles that will be separate pages on your website.
Download content for website here
Note: PLEASE CREATE A FOLDER CALLED “assignment1” in your assignment repo that you created and put all artifacts (your html and css files) in that folder. ALSO BE SURE THAT YOU PUSHED YOUR REPO TO GITHUB
You will need to do the following:
Create a homepage
- With a heading to designate the title of the web page
- With links to all five of the blog entries that are in the raw_content folder
Create five blog posts with the content in the raw_content folder
- Mark up the content using semantic HTML tags (h1, p, section, etc…)
- These files are written in markdown format. We went over markdown briefly, but here’s a quick reference. The goal is to use the correct HTML tag for what the markdown markup specified.
Create an About Us page
- You can write whatever content you would like in this page about your self
- Make sure you mark up the content using semantic html tags
Look and feel
- Must have a header and a footer on every page that contains the following links: the homepage, the About us page, and the Contact Us page
- Must specifically style the header with one css style
- Must specifically style the footer with one css style
- Must link at least one external CSS style sheet that you have written yourself
- Must style at least one element, one class, and one id and use it somewhere on your web page
- Must use styles that cascade, i.e. some element whose style is affected by more than 1 declaration in your CSS file
- HTML and CSS must validate! Use the Markup Validation Service for HTML and CSS
- Use native CSS Grid capabilities or another CSS framework to style the website
Note Please be sure to create an “assignment1” folder for all files relating to assignment1 inside of your git repo
Note Please be sure that YOUR NEW CHANGES ARE ON GITHUB!!!
