Random Quote Generator API

Random Quote Generator API

#1

Hi, I have read a lot on this topic in this forum but what I would really like to know is, do we really have to use a random quote API to do this assignment? A lot of people are talking about AJAX but really, FCC hardly cover JSON and AJAX especially AJAX in much details.

So I was thinking, can one have an array of a quotes hard coded and use JQuery to generate this random code. I find that through this way, I can truly understand the use of JQuery and AJAX and I will still be using library APIs to generate random number and quotes for display. The only think I will not be doing to accessing a external server for the quotes.

If I do that, will it still be inline with the challenge FCC set?

Many thanks,
Jasmine

Using hard coded quotes is fine.

Lmao you don’t even need to use APIs or jQuery or AJAX . Vanilla Js is enough :slight_smile:

This was my concern too. As I got going I found it quite easy to just have a quote dictionary to pull from in my script. I didn’t use any JSON or APEX for this. I only have a few quotes for functionality purposes, but it’s working like I expect it to.
