Create A Todo List App in HTML CSS & JavaScript

Hey guys, today in this tutorial, you’ll learn how to create a Todo List App in HTML CSS & JavaScript. I have already written two tutorials on Todo App in JavaScript, but these todos have limited features only. So, I have created a new todo app, and it has additional features than the previous todo list.

In this todo app, you can easily add, edit, or delete your task. There are filters button too that helps you to filter the tasks. The tasks you added on this todo app will be stored in the browser local storage so, it won’t be removed on page refresh or tab close.

If you want to see what this todo app looks like and how does it work then you can watch a demo or full video tutorial of the Todo List App in JavaScript.

First, create an HTML file with the name of index.html and paste the given codes into your HTML file. Remember, you’ve to create a file with .html extension.

Last, create a JavaScript file with the name of script.js and paste the given codes in your JavaScript file. Remember, you’ve to create a file with .js extension.


const taskInput = document.querySelector(".task-input input"),
filters = document.querySelectorAll(".filters span"),

let editId,
isEditTask = false,
todos = JSON.parse(localStorage.getItem("todo-list"));

filters.forEach(btn => {
    btn.addEventListener("click", () => {
        document.querySelector("span.active").classList.remove("active");
        btn.classList.add("active");
        showTodo(btn.id);
    });

    taskBox.innerHTML = liTag || `<span>You don't have any task here</span>`;
    let checkTask = taskBox.querySelectorAll(".task");
    !checkTask.length ? clearAll.classList.remove("active") : clearAll.classList.add("active");
    taskBox.offsetHeight >= 300 ? taskBox.classList.add("overflow") : taskBox.classList.remove("overflow");
