Project:- 1/500 To-Do List Project


The To-Do List project is designed to help users efficiently manage their daily tasks. This project demonstrates how to build a simple yet functional application using fundamental web development technologies. It allows users to add, update, and delete tasks, making task management straightforward and intuitive.


  • Add New Tasks: Users can easily add new tasks by entering a task name and optional details in an input form. Each task is then added to the to-do list for tracking.

  • Mark Tasks as Complete: Users can mark tasks as complete by clicking on them, which will visually differentiate completed tasks from those that are still pending.

  • Delete Tasks: Users can remove tasks that are no longer needed by clicking a delete button, ensuring their to-do list remains clean and organized.

Technologies Used

  • JavaScript: Handles the dynamic aspects of the application, such as adding, updating, and deleting tasks.

  • HTML: Provides the structure of the web page, including the form for adding tasks and the list for displaying them.

  • CSS: Styles the application, ensuring it is visually appealing and responsive across different devices.
