JavaScript Functionality

The JavaScript code manages the To-Do List's dynamic behavior, including adding and removing tasks, and saving the list to local storage.

(() => {
// state variables
let toDoListArray = JSON.parse(localStorage.getItem('toDoList')) || [];
// ui variables
const form = document.querySelector(".form");
const input = form.querySelector(".form__input");
const ul = document.querySelector(".toDoList");
// Load initial To-Do list items from local storage
// event listeners
form.addEventListener('submit', e => {
let itemId = String(;
let toDoItem = input.value;
addItemToDOM(itemId, toDoItem);
addItemToArray(itemId, toDoItem);
input.value = '';
ul.addEventListener('click', e => {
let id ='data-id')
if (!id) return;
// functions
function loadToDoList() {
toDoListArray.forEach(item => {
addItemToDOM(item.itemId, item.toDoItem);
function addItemToDOM(itemId, toDoItem) {
const li = document.createElement('li')
li.setAttribute("data-id", itemId);
li.innerText = toDoItem;
function addItemToArray(itemId, toDoItem) {
toDoListArray.push({ itemId, toDoItem });
function removeItemFromDOM(id) {
var li = document.querySelector('[data-id="' + id + '"]');
function removeItemFromArray(id) {
toDoListArray = toDoListArray.filter(item => item.itemId !== id);
function updateLocalStorage() {
localStorage.setItem('toDoList', JSON.stringify(toDoListArray));

Key Functions

  1. State Variables:
  • toDoListArray: Array to store to-do items, initialized from local storage.
  • form, input, ul: DOM elements for the form, input field, and list.
  1. Event Listeners:
  • Form Submit: Prevents default form submission, creates a new to-do item, and adds it to the DOM and array.
  • List Click: Removes the clicked to-do item from the DOM and array.
  1. Functions:
  • loadToDoList(): Loads initial items from local storage.
  • addItemToDOM(itemId, toDoItem): Adds a new item to the DOM.
  • addItemToArray(itemId, toDoItem): Adds a new item to the array and updates local storage.
  • removeItemFromDOM(id): Removes an item from the DOM.
  • removeItemFromArray(id): Removes an item from the array and updates local storage.
  • updateLocalStorage(): Updates local storage with the current state of the to-do list array.
