Quote Machine feedback

Hello Everyone,

Please review my quote machine and suggest ways to improve on my work.


This is looking good ! I like the color changes when getting new quotes :slight_smile:

You might have to check your code when doing substr on longer quotes because on this quote :

When hungry, eat your rice; when tired, close your eyes. Fools may laugh at me, but wise men will know what I mean

my tweet was getting only this text :

_When hungry, eat your rice

As a sidenote, many people decided to hardcode the quotes and get a random one each time, but I think if you have time and want to look in a challenge, you might find websites that delivers random quotes through an API. Theses kind of exercices will come later in other FCC challenges but it could be a nice addition (getting 1 random quote out of a possibility of thousands)

Good job !

In fact the problem seems to be the “;” character in you quote. It breaks when Twitter comes over it.

A way to fix this would be to replace this character after encodeURI with it’s html entity format :


In fact, it seems that “;” and other characters are reserved by encodeURI and are not encoded, see MDN

Thanks Mizu. I will work on your suggestion…
