HTML will allow you to create the ‘website’ style app that is available offline to your users. Today we will be looking at some simple HTML codes for your free Android app and showing you how you can create your perfect looking app.
What is HTML?
HTML is short for Hyper Text Markup Language and is used in websites and can be read using a browser. Writing the code is not as difficult as you think, there is a strict structure to is. Each HTML element is set within tags that look like this < > with the word of the element written inside the < >. After you have opened your tag < > you can write what you want it to show, such as text size, style etc and after you need to close your tag </>
The best way to learn some of the basics is to start playing around with the basics and seeing how they look on your webpage. We suggest you use the wonderful HTML tool at W3schools.com that allows you to input the code you want and then view how it would look on a webpage.
Here are some simple codes:
- The text between <html> and </html> describes the web page
- The text between <body> and </body> is what you will see on the page content
- The text between <h1> and </h1> is displayed as a heading, large text
- The text between <p> and </p> is displayed as a paragraph, regular text
Try this simple code and see what it looks like on the HTML viewer:
<h1> this is my new website </h1>
<p> Isn’t it easy to do </p>
