How are these services made?

Posted 04 December 2017 - 05:20 AM

Hi! Recently I have become more interested in web development, I try to make various scripts and plugins, I actively look at the code of other programmers. Just recently I came across one service https://ucalc.pro/en calculator designer. She seemed to me unusually interesting. Beautiful interface, completely visual editor. How do these services in general? What is technologies? Thanks!

Go into one of the examples and right-click the calculator and inspect it to discover what is behind the page. (At a glance, it looks like simple jQuery to me.) Better yet, click the Start Now button and begin to explore. Doing this will probably give you access to some documentation.

Failing the above, you could attempt to contact the owners for some illumination.

Of course, this is not a substitute for structured learning.

Thanks for the answer! Indeed, I found the jQuery. I just did not think that you could do such things with it, I always thought that it was written on something else.

I suppose if some complex data were needed to be stored and retrieved from a database then it would use Ajax calls to retrieve this data from the server-side, but these simple selections and calculations look like they can all be performed within the browser using Javascript.
