How To Set Up Your CSS and HTML Website Project

How To Set Up Your CSS and HTML Website Project

In this tutorial, you will set up the folders and files necessary for building a website with HTML and CSS. You will also prepare an index.html file so that it is ready to receive HTML content in the tutorials ahead.

Introduction

In this tutorial, you will set up the folders and files necessary for building a website with HTML and CSS. You will also prepare an index.html file so that it is ready to receive HTML content in the tutorials ahead.

Prerequisites

If you have been following along with this tutorial series, you can continue using the css-practiceproject directory, index.html file, images folder, css folder, and styles.css file that you created earlier in the series. If you have not been following along this tutorial series and need instructions for setting up these folders and files, please see our earlier tutorial in this series How To Set Up Your CSS and HTML Practice Project.

Note : If you decide to create your own names for the folders or files, make sure to avoid character spaces, special characters (such as !, #, %, or others), and capital letters, as these can cause problems later on. Be aware also that you will need to modify your file paths in some of the steps throughout the remainder of this tutorial series to ensure that they correspond with the names of your files.

You should have a project folder named css-practice that contains the following folders and files that are necessary to explore CSS in this tutorial series:

  • A folder named css that contains the file styles.css
  • An empty folder named images
  • A file named index.html

In the first step of this tutorial, you will prepare the index.html file so that it is ready to receive content in the tutorials ahead.

How To Prepare Your index.html File For HTML Content

To prepare your index.html file to serve as your website’s homepage, we’ll need to add a few important lines of HTML. These lines of HTML will serve as instructions for the browser and will not be displayed on the webpage itself. Make sure that your index.html file is empty (if you have content from previous tutorials) and add the following code snippet to the document:

index.html

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  <head>
   <meta charset="utf-8">
   <title>Sammy the Shark</title>
   <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/styles.css">
  </head>
  <body>
  </body>
</html>
