Todo List App using HTML CSS & JavaScript

codingnepal profile image CodingNepal ・5 min read

Hey friends, today in this blog you'll learn how to create Todo List App using HTML CSS & JavaScript. In the previous blog, I've also shared how to create Todo App in JavaScript but in that program when you refresh your webpage, the lists or tasks that you've added are also removed. So today I came with another blog where I create Todo App and the lists or tasks that you add won't be removed when you refresh the page and in this todo app there are also features of pending tasks number and you can also delete all tasks that you have added on single click.

As you may know, A to-do list is a list of tasks you need to complete or things that you want to do and in our design [Todo List App], at first, there is a content-box that holds only the input field with some buttons and text. When you entered some characters and click on the plus (+) button, the list will be added to your tasks list and the number of the pending tasks also updated. You can also delete each list by clicking on the trash icon, and remember this trash icon only appear on hover on the particular list and you can also delete all task with a single click.

You can copy the codes from the given boxes or download the code files from the given link but I recommend you to download the source code files instead of copying codes. Click here to download code files.
