I am not sure how this article really applies to all of us, but I have been using javascript for over a decade, so I thought I would share some of my best tips for printing in javascript. JavaScript has gotten a lot better and is getting easier to use, so if something doesn’t work, don’t worry, you can always go back to using something else.

The easiest thing to do in Javascript is to use the print() function. So, why is this so important? Well, for any reason, if you can print something, then you can also print it. So by using print() you instantly have a way to print a string in javascript. A lot of people forget to do this so if you ask them, they have no idea what they are doing.

So, printing can be easy or hard. You can print anything – that’s why you see so many examples of it in this list. But before we talk about printing, we need to talk about the print function. The print function takes a string and prints it.

So let’s start with this string “Hello World!”. If you call print(“Hello World!”) it will print it on the screen – as expected. So what if we want to do something different? Let’s say we want to print a string that’s a bit too long to fit into the screen. Or, let’s say we want to print a string that’s just a bit too small to fit into the screen.

But before we get to this step, we have to think about the string we are printing. It is going to be something like “Hello World”, but we want it to be a bit shorter or bigger than the screen. So what we can do is use the word “break” which tells javascript to break the string into two parts. In this case the part “Hello World” will be the first part and the part “world” will be the second part.

But javascript is a bit more complex than this. To print the string we would first have to write out its content, say Hello World. (And that would be the only way to make a string smaller) Then we would write out the text in the string, say hello world.

That’s a beautiful idea. We’re now able to print out the content of the string, and then we can use javascript to shrink the string. But the string itself is still longer than we want, and so it’s going to take us a few seconds to print it out. It’s a bit of a pain to do though, because we have to do all this unnecessary work.

The solution for this is to create a file called HelloWorld.js which contains the text of the string. Then we can go to to write it. We’ll add the text and its content in a few lines and then we’ll load the HelloWorld.js file into the browser.

I’ve got a few more tricks I’ll share in the coming days.
