Before we start, I should clarify what I mean by building a responsive e-commerce website using HTML, CSS, and JAVASCRIPT.

If you are building a fully functional ecommerce website, you will have to build the frontend with a framework that looks more presentable in the eyes of the users and also a backend that will be communicating with a database.

The picture am trying to paint is that a complete ecommerce website can't be built with only HTML, CSS, and JAVASCRIPT. You will need to save users data in a database which will also require a backend.

In this blog, I will try my best to help you build an ecommerce template with HTML, CSS and JAVASCRIPT step by step. You can later convert this template to any frontend framework you know like REACTJS, ANGULARJS or VUEJS and also connect it to a backend like NODEJS, PHP, PYTHON etc.

Features of an Ecommerce Website:

  • SEO Friendly website
  • Chat Widget for Messaging
  • Responsive on all devices
  • Product Navigation
  • Search Box
  • Product Cart
  • Payment Methods
  • Security

Things Needed(Plugins):

  • Glide.js
  • Google Fonts
  • Fontawesome Icons

Basic Setup:

Create a new directory and give it a name of your choice. In that directory create an image folder. Download the images and unzip the file. Now copy the download images and paste them into the images folder you created.

Now open your project with any text editor of your choice, in this article I will be using VISUAL STUDIO CODE. You can use any text editor since the final result is the same regardless of what text editor you use.

Create a new data directory in your root and also create a products.json file in the data directory.

I went for this approach because we are not going to build a backend for fetching data. If you are getting confuse I created this youtube video to guide you through every step.
