I am tasked with consuming json, sorting it, processing it and writing a table of records to the window, and I have to do it with via vanilla JS. So basically index.html with script=app.js that does all the work.
I’m new to JS (but not to programming) and I need to do this in a way that doesn’t expose me as a complete novice
I’ve searched the web, but couldn’t pin this down.
Naively, I have two options:
I can build up a giant string of html and document.write to it, or I can add and edit dom elements.
JS doesn’t have a built in string building facility (or does it?) so I’m leaning towards direct dom editing. Is my thinking on track? Anything I should keep in mind when doing that?
Will really appreciate any help I can get.
