"It's a simple app that you can develop using HTML and CSS". There is JS in there too.

"You can learn about using the random method to derive a random result from an array of options." Also, I thought it impossible to get a random result from a binary computer?

  • Yes it'll need some JS too.
  • He's talking about the Math.random() function to get random value.

Will get the post updated to make clearer. Thanks for the comment!

It's impossible to get a random value, but some functions use some calculations to return a result that looks random enough.
