Clock app


Assets Provided Include

  • Sketch and Figma design files
  • Mobile, tablet & desktop layouts
  • Professional design system for colors, fonts, etc
  • Optimized image assets
  • README file to help you get started
  • HTML files with pre-written content



Your challenge is to build out this clock application and get it looking as close to the design as possible. You'll be using external APIs to set the data based on the visitor's location and generate random programming quotes. We provide more information on these APIs in the challenge REAMDE.md file.

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 site depending on their device's screen size
  • See hover states for all interactive elements on the page
  • View the current time and location information based on their IP address
  • View additional information about the date and time in the expanded state
  • Be shown the correct greeting and background image based on the time of day they're visiting the site
  • Generate random programming quotes by clicking the refresh icon near the quote

Download the project and go through the README.md file. This will provide further details about the project and help you get set up.

Getting started

  1. Download the starter code
  2. Set up the project with version control (e.g. Git)

  3. Read the README.md file and have a look around the project

  4. Download the design files, we provide both Sketch and Figma versions of the design

  5. Get colors, fonts, etc from the design system in the design files

  6. Set up your project/file architecture however you want

  7. Start coding!

Ideas to test yourself

  • Write your styles using a pre-processor, such as Sass, Less or Stylus

  • Train your eye for detail by getting your solution as close to the design as you can

  • Try estimating the time it will take for you to build the project. Then see if the time taken matches up to your estimate. Project estimations are a skill that is often overlooked, but is important for professional developers
