- Change the appearance of a screen element by modifying its CSS attributes. You may want something a little – or a lot – different to what your theme provides.
- Show and hide parts of your content, avoiding the need to reload the page by putting everything in at the start and selecting which parts of it to show.
- React to button clicks and other events by altering the appearance or revealing content as above.
- Retrieve content from web services.
EasyCoder provides a simple syntax to do all these things, at about the same level of complexity and readability as SQL or Excel macros. It’s a full programming language, though, capable of making complex logical decisions.
EasyCoder scripts are embedded in your page or post, inside
tags. When the page loads, EasyCoder looks for this element then compiles and runs the script it contains. When it interacts with HTML elements it does so by attaching their IDs to its own variables, so your HTML and its controlling script are in the same file.
When EasyCoder detects an error, either in compilation or at runtime, it opens a popup window with a friendly error message that tries to tell you what went wrong and where in the script it happened.
As a further help when developing scripts, EasyCoder has a single-step tracer where you can decide which variables to display for each step of your script. To use this feature you just add a
section to your page.
