Advice for tools to use for building website displaying API driven headlines


I’m interested in building a hobby site that will display news haedlines.
I would like to be able to display a short excerpt if the headline is clicked and then a link to the original article.

I plan to use something like as a source and I ‘think’ I understand how to use the endpoints and parse. (ok, actually I don’t but I have some examples and am really too confused to word a proper question)

I like the look of the HTML5 and CSS sites and was thiking of using something like Bulma framework.

I just don’t get what works together and what doesn’t. For example, for a non-coder, looks good as does Flexbox.

The more I read, the blurrier its’ becoming.

Could someone give me a couple clear examples… this tool for this task, this one for that, etc…

I haven’t looked at HTML for a decade at least and the last couple years have been wordpress.

Appreciate any thoughts.

For styling your webpage - CSS frameworks - Pick one -

  1. Bootstrap
  2. Material
  3. Bulma
  4. Foundation

For making your webpage functional. (including calling news api end points) - Javascript frameworks/libraries -Pick one

  1. jQuery
  2. AngularJS
  3. Angular
  4. React
  5. Vue

All of these work together and should help you achieve what you’re looking for.
