First of all, let’s start with our HTML and CSS. Thanks to the CSS grid, we can quickly get a nice calculator shape on the page.

So, let’s get started.

Step 1: We will create a folder anywhere on your computer with three files index.html, style.css and script.js

Step 2: Then open ‘index.html’ in text editor like Visual Studio Code, Notepad++ or Sublime Text. First we will create the structure of the calculator. It will do by using HTML.

Step 3: Html 5 boilerplate code template declared as follows. In a VS Code type html:5 and press enter, you can get boilerplate code.

Step 4: First, We need to include the font link, CSS style sheet link and JavaScript link inside the html header tag.

Step 5: Now put the below HTML tags inside the body tag. It completes the structure of our calculator one by one.

Here we first use two <p> tags to display the history value and the current value output of the display. Next we need to create the keys on the calculator. For that, <button> tags are used. We use unique ID's and classes for each button to identify uniquely.

Then, We will go to beautify our calculator. It is done through CSS.

Step 1: First we need to open the ‘style.css’ file.

Step 2: Next, we use the relevant CSS styles for the whole body using <body> tag.

First we need to zero the margin. Then use the ‘Open Sans’ font as the default font.

Step 3: Now lets style our calculator using CSS. The code will be as follows.

Step 2: Then you can get the relevant functions as you want by applying the following JavaScript code.
