Random Choice Picker Using HTML CSS & Javascript [Source code]

To create a Random Choice Picker Using HTML CSS & Javascript you have to create three files (HTML, CSS, and JS) files with the named index.html, style.css, and Script.js in the same folder and you have to link the CSS and JS files to HTML. after that paste, the HTML code in index.html, and paste the CSS code in style.css at last paste the Javascript code in Script.js that’s all after pasting the code.

At first, you have to create an HTML file with the named index.html and paste the below HTML code on it and save it. Remember to give a .html extension to the HTML file.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="UTF-8" />
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
    <title>Random Choice Picker</title>
    <div class="container">
      <h3>Enter all of the choices divided by a comma (','). <br> Press enter when you're done</h3>
      <textarea placeholder="Enter choices here..." id="textarea"></textarea>

      <div id="tags"></div>

    <script src="script.js"></script>

After pasting the HTML code, Now have to create a second CSS file with the named style.css. Paste the below code on it and save it. Again remember to give .css extension to CSS file.

@import url('https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Muli&display=swap');

* {
  box-sizing: border-box;

body {
  background-color: #2b88f0;
  font-family: 'Muli', sans-serif;
  display: flex;
  flex-direction: column;
  align-items: center;
  justify-content: center;
  height: 100vh;
  overflow: hidden;
  margin: 0;

h3 {
  color: #fff;
  margin: 10px 0 20px;
  text-align: center;

.container {
  width: 500px;

textarea {
  border: none;
  display: block;
  width: 100%;
  height: 100px;
  font-family: inherit;
  padding: 10px;
  margin: 0 0 20px;
  font-size: 16px;

textarea:focus {
  outline: none;

.tag {
  background-color: #f0932b;
  color: #fff;
  border-radius: 50px;
  padding: 10px 20px;
  margin: 0 5px 10px 0;
  font-size: 14px;
  display: inline-block;

.tag.highlight {
  background-color: #273c75;

At last, you have to create a Javascript file with the named script.js and paste the Js code on it and save it again don’t forget to give the .js extension to the Javascript file.

const tagsEl = document.getElementById('tags')
const textarea = document.getElementById('textarea')


textarea.addEventListener('keyup', (e) => {

    if(e.key === 'Enter') {
        setTimeout(() => {
            e.target.value = ''
        }, 10)


function createTags(input) {
    const tags = input.split(',').filter(tag => tag.trim() !== '').map(tag => tag.trim())
    tagsEl.innerHTML = ''

    tags.forEach(tag => {
        const tagEl = document.createElement('span')
        tagEl.innerText = tag

function randomSelect() {
    const times = 30

    const interval = setInterval(() => {
        const randomTag = pickRandomTag()
	if (randomTag !== undefined) {

        setTimeout(() => {
        }, 100)
    }, 100);

    setTimeout(() => {

        setTimeout(() => {
            const randomTag = pickRandomTag()

        }, 100)

    }, times * 100)

function pickRandomTag() {
    const tags = document.querySelectorAll('.tag')
    return tags[Math.floor(Math.random() * tags.length)]

function highlightTag(tag) {

function unHighlightTag(tag) {
