Project Folder Structure:

Before we start coding, let us create the project folder structure. We create a project folder called – ‘Random User Card Generator’. Inside this project, we have three files. These files are index.html, style.css and script.js. The first file is our HTML document. Next, we have our stylesheet. And finally, we have the script file.

HTML:

We begin with the HTML code. First, copy the code below and paste it into your HTML document.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
  <head>
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0" />
    <title>Random User Card</title>
    <!-- Font Awesome Icons -->
    <link
      rel="stylesheet"
      href="https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/font-awesome/6.1.2/css/all.min.css"
    />
    <!-- Google Fonts -->
    <link
      href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Poppins:wght@400;600&display=swap"
      rel="stylesheet"
    />
    <!-- Stylesheet -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
  </head>
  <body>
    <div class="container">
      <div class="card">
        <div class="img-container"></div>
        <div class="details"></div>
      </div>
      <button id="get-user-btn">Get Random User</button>
    </div>
    <!-- Script -->
    <script src="script.js"></script>
  </body>
</html>

CSS:

Next, we style our project using CSS. For this copy, the code provided to you below and paste it into your stylesheet.

* {
  padding: 0;
  margin: 0;
  box-sizing: border-box;
  font-family: "Poppins", sans-serif;
}
:root {
  --theme-color: #5074f3;
}
body {
  background-color: var(--theme-color);
}
.container {
  width: 90%;
  max-width: 25em;
  position: absolute;
  transform: translate(-50%, -50%);
  top: 50%;
  left: 50%;
}
.card {
  width: 100%;
  padding: 4em 0;
  background-color: #ffffff;
  text-align: center;
  border-radius: 0.5em;
}
.card .img-container {
  height: 11.25em;
  width: 11.25em;
  display: block;
  margin: -8.75em auto 0 auto;
  background-color: #ffffff;
  box-shadow: 0 0 0 0.3em #ffffff, 0 0 0 0.9em var(--theme-color);
  border-radius: 50%;
}
.img-container img {
  width: 100%;
  border-radius: 50%;
}
.container button {
  display: block;
  font-size: 1.2em;
  width: 90%;
  margin: 2em auto 0 auto;
  padding: 1.1em 0;
  border-radius: 0.3em;
  border: none;
  outline: mome;
  font-weight: 600;
  color: #000341;
  cursor: pointer;
}
.card h2 {
  margin-top: 1.8em;
  font-weight: 600;
  color: #000341;
}
.card h3,
.card h4 {
  font-size: 1em;
  letter-spacing: 0.02em;
  margin-top: 0.5em;
  font-weight: 300;
  color: #90919e;
}
.card i {
  color: var(--theme-color);
  margin-right: 0.3em;
}
.card h4 {
  margin-top: 0.4em;
}

Javascript:

Finally, we implement the functionality with javascript. For this copy the below and paste it into your script file.

let details = document.querySelector(".details");
let imgContainer = document.querySelector(".img-container");
let getUserBtn = document.getElementById("get-user-btn");
let url = "https://random-data-api.com/api/v2/users?response_type=json";

let getUser = () => {
  fetch(url)
    .then((resp) => resp.json())
    .then((data) => {
      imgContainer.innerHTML = `<img src= ${data.avatar}>`;
      details.innerHTML = `
      <h2>${data.first_name} ${data.last_name}</h2>
      <h3>${data.employment.title}</h3>
      <h4><i class="fa-solid fa-location-dot"></i> ${data.address.city}</h4>`;

      let randomColor =
        "#" + ((Math.random() * 0xffffff) << 0).toString(16).padStart(6, "0");
      document.documentElement.style.setProperty("--theme-color", randomColor);
    });
};
window.addEventListener("load", getUser);
getUserBtn.addEventListener("click", getUser);

That’s it for this tutorial. Your random user card generator is now ready.
