Frontend is the website part, like the visual part.
The backend part is the stuff that actually does the magic, like databases and things the user otherwise cannot see.

Frontend is usually just 3 languages: HTML, css, and js. If you get more into it, you will also discover reactjs and the god nextjs that replit uses!!!

An example of backend is something like nodejs and go, which replit uses.

Coder100 (18917)

Coder100 (18917)

but here is a thing
if you don't know it
you probably don't need it until you find a use for it, like if you wanted to make a website like replit or a forum @plscodeinjava

@Coder100
oh java is backend
huh
weird
so why was bookie0 asking for frontend, if not all langs support it

Coder100 (18917)

@plscodeinjava because frontend is a very good way to go
who wouldn't love designing websites

its like saying: why use java when you can use c#

Coder100 (18917)

yes they do!
For things like crosis and graphql @ruiwenge2

plscodeinjava (389)

@Coder100
designing websites is stupid
c# is not a website language lol
and java is just better overall

Coder100 (18917)

@plscodeinjava
1. your opinion
2. asp.net
3. your opinion

plscodeinjava (389)

@Coder100
??????
whats asp.net?
and ummmm
look i just think bookie0 shouldnt think that noone uses java, or that everyone knows frontend
stupid weekly clahhndes

Coder100 (18917)

asp.net is C#'s frontend
and you are overthinking this it was a playful remark @plscodeinjava

Bookie0 (6385)

@plscodeinjava cuz I better at frontend than backend

Bookie0 (6385)

Yeah it's mostly because I consider myself better at the frontend part than backend coding, and was (jokingly) asking where it would be, because I'm better at that part lol.

ch1ck3n (2373)

its the html part

the part you see on the website

you see there's a backend and frontend on a website

the backend is the server where all of the fancy calculations are made
the frontend is what you see on the browser

ta

@ch1ck3n

ch1ck3n (2373)
