next 13 todo app
March 7th, 2023
Thanks for checking out this front-end coding challenge.
Frontend Mentor challenges help you improve your coding skills by building realistic projects.
Your challenge is to build out this todo app and get it looking as close to the design as possible.
You can use any tools you like to help you complete the challenge. So if you've got something you'd like to practice, feel free to give it a go.
Your users should be able to:
- View the optimal layout for the app depending on their device's screen size
- See hover states for all interactive elements on the page
- Add new todos to the list
- Mark todos as complete
- Delete todos from the list
- Filter by all/active/complete todos
- Clear all completed todos
- Toggle light and dark mode
- Bonus: Drag and drop to reorder items on the list

Where to find everything
Your task is to build out the project to the designs inside the /design folder. You will find both a mobile and a desktop version of the design.
The designs are in JPG static format. Using JPGs will mean that you'll need to use your best judgment for styles such as font-size, padding and margin.
If you would like the design files (we provide Sketch & Figma versions) to inspect the design in more detail, you can subscribe as a PRO member.
You will find all the required assets in the /images folder. The assets are already optimized.
There is also a style-guide.md file containing the information you'll need, such as color palette and fonts.
Building your project
Feel free to use any workflow that you feel comfortable with. Below is a suggested process, but do not feel like you need to follow these steps:
- Initialize your project as a public repository on GitHub. Creating a repo will make it easier to share your code with the community if you need help. If you're not sure how to do this, have a read-through of this Try Git resource.
- Configure your repository to publish your code to a web address. This will also be useful if you need some help during a challenge as you can share the URL for your project with your repo URL. There are a number of ways to do this, and we provide some recommendations below.
- Look through the designs to start planning out how you'll tackle the project. This step is crucial to help you think ahead for CSS classes to create reusable styles.
- Before adding any styles, structure your content with HTML. Writing your HTML first can help focus your attention on creating well-structured content.
- Write out the base styles for your project, including general content styles, such as font-family and font-size.
- Start adding styles to the top of the page and work down. Only move on to the next section once you're happy you've completed the area you're working on.
Deploying your project
As mentioned above, there are many ways to host your project for free. Our recommend hosts are:
You can host your site using one of these solutions or any of our other trusted providers. Read more about our recommended and trusted hosts.
Create a custom README.md
We strongly recommend overwriting this README.md with a custom one. We've provided a template inside the README-template.md file in this starter code.
The template provides a guide for what to add. A custom README will help you explain your project and reflect on your learnings. Please feel free to edit our template as much as you like.
Once you've added your information to the template, delete this file and rename the README-template.md file to README.md. That will make it show up as your repository's README file.
