Some random guy writes he thinks it is. Whatever.
Build me an app in HTML.
NO CSS, NO JS. Those aren’t HTML
Plain jane old pure and simple HTML.
Oh but you say I can submit forms and – yeah to the SERVER that is served from. But then what ? The server won’t DO anything with that form or the data on it unless its running PHP or Java or something that can DO something with the data (even just stuff it in a file !)
HTML on its own can’t process data, make decisions (no if then else or select case) or DO much beyond show you data (text, images, etc) from whatever web server its served from on.
Lets go look at what the W3 schools has to say about it
HTML is the standard markup language for Web pages.https://www.w3schools.com/html/
Note they do not say “programming language” – its a MARKUP language
The tags you insert tell a browser how to display things in bold underline lists etc etc etc
But on its own HTML is not a “programming language”
EDIT : as for the twitter replies lets just say that might hurt if the opinion were from someone that I respect. I dont. So no harm (no name calling required)
EDIT: if someone is looking for a job a & says they are a coder they better know more than HTML
Thanks to an astute reader
EDIT: Using nothing but html add two numbers and print the result 😛
Ready ! Set ! Go !
