Spring 2020 -- Peter Brooks
|Sample of good student homepages|
|Unix commands quiz and answers (from last Friday)|
|Web Authoring tools, due Thurs. 2/27, midnight||
Find and evaluate free web authoring tools. That means look at
the descriptions and choose one or more, download it/them and
evaluate. Write a review on the Google Docs page hat you've
been sent a link for. The program should allow you to edit
both the visual version and the HTML version of your document.
If the tool that you've chosen to use is not on your own laptop (it's a web-based editor, running in your browser), then make sure that you can download the resultant HTML file that you creat, and that you can incorporate a picture that your have on your laptop into the document.
Here's a small demo of
CSS controls the visual style of the content of a page, although older HTML tags still do some (like <b> and <i>).
|First HTML homework, due: end of mid-winter break: Sun 2/23, midnight||
a) Construct a page that looks like this (your
can change the text, but it should have at least a numbered list and
a table with the same structure, at least a picture and a link to
some blissful nirvana).
b) Upload the html file to your public_html directory.
c) Create and test a URL that allows anyone knowing it to see your page over the internet
d) type that URL into the Comments-to-Teacher in the homework slot for this assignment
|HTML References found||
You should find a good site on the net that offers an HTML reference
and/or tutorial. You have been sent an invitation to add the
site you found to a table to show others in your class, along with
your quick review as to why it's good.
|Opportunities that have come wizzing into my emailbox:||
|Connecting to Stuy's computers from home:||Instructions here.|
Try using the "ls" command with directory arguments
For instance: After logging in, you'll be in your home
We're trying an experiment... An adventure game to learn
Get thee into a Terminal window (fast way: Ctrl-Alt t)
Read all of the instructions below before executing any of the commands (in red)...
Execute the following 3 commands exactly (note where the spaces and punctuation are)
scp -r 18.104.22.168:/stuyinstall/bashcrawl ./
After you execute that command, you'll be asked for your password. While you type your password, you won't see the letters you type ... that's all right, just finish and hit the Enter key. Lots of output will be sprayed at you. That's all right too.
In this game, you'll be entering rooms (actually directories) using the "cd" command, and then looking at the contents of a room (the files in the directory) using the "ls" command, and then perhaps, displaying the contents of files (partcularly the "scroll" file) using the "cat" command.
If you want/have to start over, type the "cd" command without arguments, and then continue with the red command above ("cd bashcrawl/entrance").
