How to use third party API with jQuery

We create a project here for using third party API. Here I am using subline text editor for creating a project you can select a notepad or any other app. Follow these process for creating a project.

1-: First create a folder and give a name of folder here I am giving the name of folder test_api. Open this folder and create a file and give the name of file Index.html.

2-: In the test_api folder create another file and give the file name style.css. Here we write the style code here.

3-:Now open the index.html file and write the code here as like show here. Here we will give the button and we use API on this button for changing image .You can download here

	<title>Use third party api</title>
	<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="style.css">
 <h1>Your name write here </h1>
 <div class="centerDiv">
  <div class="details">
   <label>ENTER YOUR NAME</label><br>
   <input type="text" name="" id="netnicid">

  <div class="imgdiv">
   <img src="img.png" width="200" height="200" class="imgchange">

  <button> Click Me</button>


Here we will create a simple html page now and we will use API in this page. For changing the user interface we use style sheet and giving the name of this style.

4-: Now open the style.css page and write the code here as I am using here.

*{padding: 0; margin: 0; box-sizing: border-box; font-family: 'Luckiest Guy', cursive;}

section{width: 100%; height: 100vh; display: flex; justify-content: center; flex-direction: column; align-items: center;background: #d22ed5}

section h1{ text-shadow: 2px 5px 5px #2f3542; word-spacing: 10px; margin-bottom: 15px; 
 font-size:2.5rem; text-transform: uppercase; letter-spacing: 2px; color: white;}
.centerDiv{ width: 60%; height: 450px; box-shadow:2px 2px 2px 5px white;  display: flex;  
flex-direction: column;  align-items: center; justify-content: center; background: #57606f; color: white;}

.details{ text-align: center; text-transform: uppercase; }

.details label{font-size: 1.4rem;}
.details input { padding: 10px; background-color: #ff6b81; color: white; text-align: center;}
.details input[type=text]:focus {
  border: 3px solid #555;

.imgdiv {margin: 30px 0;}

button {
  background: #3498db;
  width: 180px;
  padding: 4px 0;
  border-radius: 3px;
  font-size: 1.2rem;
  letter-spacing: 2px;
    background-color: darken(#f1c40f, 20%);

  button:hover {
    cursor: pointer;

This is the common thing for creating a index page.

In this folder we given a image that’s name of img.png.
