Hello community. I’ve done the HTML and CSS course in FCC and half of the JS curriculum. I’m constantly looking for information on coding and working on www.frontendmentor.io project to improve coding. I’m learning about the good practices on how to create a code from scratch to make it understandable for other developers and myself.
I’ve been using devtools to look at the html and css codes of different pages, and I notice they are very different from everything I’ve learned here in FCC. This is frustrating because in my mind I thought what’s i’ve learned so far was going to be sufficient to be able to maintain or edit a page already created.
I got an offer to update a page already created. My knowledge in backend development is very limited. I thought it would be as easy as looking for the html and css code and make some changes. I didn’t know where to start so I looked in devtools for the folder structure of the page it I didn’t understand it at all. I found an index.html page but it has a bunch of wordpress links and scripts along styles, bootstrap, etc, and a lot of divs all mixed up in the html page. This is confusing because I keep learning about the structure of these coding pages but on the real world they seem to be different.
Is there a guide that explain how does a front-end developer gives maintenance to a page already created for a client by someone else? I have a lot of questions on this topic and I can’t seem to find guide anywhere. How are these things usually maintained? Do I need the code from the client and I edit it using vscode? Do I need frameworks? Do I need wordpress? I’m really confused on all of this and kind of stuck as to where to go next. The page code almost seemed like it used wordpress themes and frainkenstained a lot of elements using bootstraps and other stuff and everything got dumped on the index.html. Any advice? Thanks!
