Html into a js file

I’m making my own toolbar for my website and would like to create a .JS file so other users and use this toolbar on their sites too. How can I do this ?

Thanks for reading :slight_smile:

Simply create a file called something like myplugin.js and write your javascript code in it. Once you have done that its as simply as calling it in the HTML <head> tags

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript" src="myplugin.js"></script>
</head>
<body>

HTML here

</body>
</html>

I did like this


document.write('html code');
document.write('html code');
document.write('html code');
document.write('html code');

That seems to work for me now, but is there a way I can use document.write only once instead of every line shift ?

You can place a backslash at the end of a line to continue on to the next line, which effectively escapes the newline character:


document.write('html code \\
    html code \\
    html code \\
    html code');

Although, you may want to consider using some other technique than document.write

hmm, what kind of technique would that be, any examples to a JS newbie :slight_smile:

That depends on what you’re wanting to output, and where.

Would this be valid for a new JS developer?

document.getElementByID(‘elementID’).innerHTML

Its how i started out basically.
