Footer VS

Welcome! This is the Footer VS page of the MMINAIL. ~

Footer VS is a partioned Worksheet for the course 'How To Build a Webpage Programatically With Javascript and the jQuery Library' sponsored online by the MOOC Udacity.

This page has explicit access to the local jQuery library as well as to a local complimentary working (.js) file.

Lower Body Scripts

Through the addition of two uncommented lower body scripts, one that calls the local jQuery library first, and a second script that secondly calls the local complimentary working (.js) file ...

The program installs, prepends and appends the internal text of the code that is programatically rendered in the window of your browser.

Jekyll Server

Because the default layout in Jekyll references a call to the jQuery library hosted via a CDN ...

AFTER the initial scan of the <html> of this page ...

In order to make the Javascript statements over at the complimentary working (.js) file effective locally, both the jQuery library and the complimentary working (.js) file must be invoked PRIOR to the final rendering of the page.

Hence, the two uncommented scripts located below the closing <div> tags of this page referencing a local copy of the jQuery library as well as the local complimentary working ( .js) file, yet still effectively located above the closing <body> tag of the default layout.

Mind Map

"Everything from here to the <script> tag below is 'The Skeleton' of a Working <html> template." ~

Your new Javascript code statements will add information to each of the sections of the proposed Working <html> template below.

Each section of the Working <html> template displays a separate rendering that when combined create the experience of the webpage as a whole.

By scanning the id="..." elements of the <html> ...

And, by looking at the subtitles written between the <h2> tags, the student can catch a glimpse of what ultimately will be the programatical rendering of the manipulated DOM by statements of Javascript enhanced by the jQuery library.


The 'Document Object Model', or DOM is essentially a Javascript object.

Javascript assets, however, by default tend to block other parallel downloads from occurring.

Why? Because <html> is loaded by the browser in the order it appears in the targeted webpage.

If a <script> designed to affect the <html> of a webpage is loaded first ie.) prior to the receipt of an external call to a CDN for jQuery assets placed in the <head> section of the default layout ...

Then, the changes to the DOM and corresponding <html> of the targeted webpage may not work properly.

Why? Because the Javascript statements of your corresponding (.js) file would be loaded BEFORE the methods of the jQuery library would have a chance to work their magic upon the <html>.

Strategic Placement

As a result, place your <script> tags near the bottom of the targeted webpage.

This strategy is often cited as the most effective way to render accompanying jQuery methods.

So, you can imagine if you have plenty of <script> tags in the <head> section of your default layout ...

Each <script> tag calling on one or more external scripts one after the other ...

The effect of the multiple scripts all vying for external assets is to block the <html> of your targeted page from loading on time.

The <script> files must be completely loaded first.

If not, the end user may be inadvertently greeted with a blank browser screen, or at the least ... no upgrade!

Not cool!

jQuery Library

jQuery is a library of javascript methods designed to get at (read) and to manipulate (change) the Document Object Model, or DOM.

The DOM is a tree of page components that have been translated from the original <html>.

The DOM contains information that the browser can visibly actualize to the window of a Webpage.

Though a webpage rich in <html> is in effect simply a static document, the browser will still convert the <html> into the elements of a DOM.

Therefore, the DOM can be changed, and does change via the application of Javascript.

In fact, the real power of Javascript on the client-side comes from the ability of libraries such as jQuery to manipulate the client-side DOM.

When a Javascript statement comprised of a jQuery method makes something interesting happen on a overall Website, the reason is likely the action was a result of a change in the client-side DOM.

The Bottom Line. jQuery is fast and easy to use, but it doesn't do anything you can't accomplish with original Javascript.

Body Scripts

The commented scripts at the bottom of this page are written in Javascript.

As part of the accompanying quiz given by the instructors, the student learns how to apply each <script> to the following Webpage template ie.) 'The Skeleton'.

Then, upon release (uncommenting) ...

Each <script> will be transfered one-by-one to the complimentary (.js) file to assist in the rendering of new material onto 'The Skeleton'.

The Skeleton

The html for the subject Webpage template ...
<div id="main">
<div id="header" class="center-content clear-fix">
<ul id="topContacts" class="flex-box"></ul>

<div style="clear: both;"></div>

<div id="workExperience" class="gray">
<h2>Work Experience</h2>

<div id="projects">

<div id="education" class="gray">

<div id="mapDiv">
<h2>Where I've Lived and Worked</h2>

<div id="lets-connect" class="dark-gray">
<h2 class="orange center-text">Let's Connect</h2>
<ul id="footerContacts" class="flex-box"></ul>
named 'Resume Builder'

Note. During the course of the instructions, you will be directed to delete the <span>Hello world!<span> statement from the skeleton of the instant <html> template.

The Result

Work Experience



Where I've Lived and Worked

Let's Connect

Google Maps

Uncomment the 'maps dot google api(s)' <script> tag at the bottom of this page when you are ready to add an interactive Google Map to your <html> template.

Manipulating the DOM

Ok ... Let's have some fun.

Witness the updated (.js) file ...

Invoke a strict environment ...
//Resume Builder Program
'use strict';
Keep-a Ur code compliant

Test for DOM readiness ...
//En español ... 'The DOM is ready' if true
jQuery(function($) {
var date = new Date();
window.alert(`¡El DOM está listo!
The current session between
client and server has begun on:
/* Where the 'anonymous function''
passed the argument of the '$' function
aka the 'jQuery document dot ready'
function returns an alert if true. */

/* Where the current date time is passed
to the built-in 'toString()' method of
the built-in Date object representing
the current date n time. */

Show current date n time


In Javascript, targeting an element of the DOM is accomplished via the following statement ...

Targeting the element
Where "mminail" is the targeted id

Once selected, the wrapper set may be manipulated using other functions. The same principle applies when using jQuery, only with different syntax. In effect, the keyword 'jQuery' replaces the Javascript statement 'document.getElementById'. To avoid conflicting keywords, and to add individuality to the code, the keyword 'jQuery' can be exchanged, as well.

Declare and initialize the method No Conflict ...
//to the global variable jKey
var jKey = jQuery.noConflict();
var 'jKey' replaces term 'jQuery'

Append a String
jKey(function($) {
//Declare and initialize the var target id
var test = jKey('#test');
/* where id = "test" is the targeted wrapper set */
test.append("The Author");
//Append String to the end of the parent tag
/* where 'parent tag' is of the targeted wrapper set */
The var is now available

Declare and initialize the String ...
jKey(function($) {
//to the global variable author
var author = "Robert Hempaz, PhD Trichometry";
//Append author to the parent tag of the id
/* Where the id = "rht" is targeted
appending the contents of the variable
'author' to the end of the parent tag */
via the append method

Build a URL

Build a URL programmatically ...
jKey(function($) {
var mminail = jKey('#mminail');
.attr('href', '')
/* jQuery: Target the id, create a wrapper set,
assign the wrapper set to the var 'mminail',
add an 'a' tag, add a 'class',
initialize the 'text' of the url,
initialize the 'attribute(s)' of the url
via implicit iteration, append the result
to the given 'span' tag */

Render next to the 'tilde', as follows:



A lot of functions can be invoked prior to the actual loading of all page assets by simply invoking the quicker loading DOM.

Note. On the other hand, the property of 'document' is actually an object of the global 'window', or BOM subset.


The Browser Object Model, or BOM is based on the global object 'window' The BOM ie.) objects that interact with the computer screen and the browser.

Whereas, the Document Object Model, or DOM is based on a universal API.

Here, we are attempting to decipher the status of all assets. Have all assets loaded, or not?

Check to see if all assets have been loaded ...
jKey(function($) {
var document = jKey('#document');
document.load.alert(`All of the assets are now loaded.`);
The page is now complete if true

E Books

With today's explosion of modern devices, some consumers like to read their articles on their Kindles or iPads.

Therefore, a method to convert any page of this website into an 'eBook' is auto-built into the top of the navigation stack as well as in the footer of every page.

Simply click the small dot epub button eBook icon to render the current page as an Overdrive (.epub) or a Kindle (.mobi) for external reading.

Note. The Apple iBooks platform also reads and displays the (.epub) format.

The A's Have It!

In today's complicated world of coding, even the use of the standard hyperlink has come into question.

Therefore, to make it easy for the end-user, this User Interface, or UI will show safe internal links in the bootstrap default color of light dodger blue.

On the other hand, external links, when designated https secure ... Will be shown in the color of forest green.

All other external links designated with standard http will be shown in the color of indian red.


For an acronym to be visually effective when reading a line of text, the acronym must first be declared.

In addition, the acronym must stand out from the body of information.

To accomplish both of these objectives, the authors have selected Ashley Gold, a primary color within the registered logo badge of the Benefit corporation for which to highlight acronyms.

Whenever the end user spies a designated acronym of Ashley Gold color, simply hover over the acronym to reveal the underlying meaning of the acronym letters.

Screen Responsiveness

This page has been tested for mobile responsiveness on a virtual Galaxy S5 smartphone emulator.

The authors have determined the accuracies of the page renderings at both a portrait width of 360px and a landscape width of 640px.

In addition, pages are also tested against an Amazon Kindle Fire HDX 7, 3rd Generation tablet.

On the Kindle tablet, both portrait and landscape renderings appear accurate, as well.

And, on the Amazon Fire phone, using automatic screen rotation, both portrait and landscape renderings appear accurate.

25 Mile Rule

The MMINAIL is dedicated to the preservation of the hard-earned rights of Medical patients to grow up to (12) state-legal Medicinal plants.

In a connective cartography of ideas and hyperlinks spanning the entire connectome of the modern Medical Marijuana Initiative ...

The open source authors of this project hope to enlighten the world to the plight of the common medical patient.

Due to a labyrinth of government regulations and costs, today's common medical patient is virtually devoid of healing phyto-cannabinoids and other beneficial terpenes globally for no other reason than his or her current residential address.


"When residing 25 miles extant of a state legalized dispensary"

Doesn't that sound a bit strange to you?

Restricting access to medicine ...

Almost Un-constitutional, isn't it?

And, with patients in Arizona paying anywhere from $75 to $90 USD for a (1/8) ounce of medicine ...

Don't you think it is time that we allow ALL patients the right to grow, stash, and cure their own medicines?
