What is a MadLibs?

A mad lib is a short story that includes blanks for words. The story can be funny, serious, or anything in between. The point is to fill in the blanks with random words and see what happens!

How do you make a mad lib in javascript?

The first step is to come up with a story. Once you have your story, identify the parts of speech for each blank. For example, if you want to use a noun, verb, and adjective, you would write: ____(noun)____ ____(verb)____ ____(adjective)____ . Next, create an input field for each blank. When the user clicks “submit”, your mad lib will generate a story based on the words they enter.

If you’ve never played it, the game’s name is a mouthful, but it’s one where you fill in a variety of blanks for different word sorts and then a tale is created based on those words, and it can be rather amusing.

In this phase, you’ll finish the game’s logic in the event listener and find the values of each of the word inputs and then write a tale that utilizes each value. When you play the game, make sure to check the console for any problems.
