For our firs assignment,  we were supposed to

“Find a source text and manually perform one of the mashup techniques .Create a webpage with the results using some combination of HTML, CSS, and/or JavaScript. Host the page on github pages (or your own server). There is no need for programming for this assignment, it’s just about getting set up in an environment and starting to think about creative ways to play with text. However, you may choose to include animated or interactive elements if you like. Think about creative ways for the page to be “self-documenting”, i.e. instructions for the text mashup, references, etc.”

Since my JavaScript and jQuery skills are rather poor, for my assignment I decided to create two projects, practicing simple commands and events.

I called the 1st project  ‘The synonyms’. It is supposed to turn each word of a given text into its synonyms.

I must say I had many problems with that, since I’m not familiar with using API. Also, I had problem with an array of words, which for some reason reversed their order. Finally, I managed to get something satisfying and get it working.

The second project is a simple ‘Turn your text to Uppercase’ converter.
