I just don't get it


I have been trying to use javascript on other sources to see if it would work. But I would just get errors when i run it. I am looking at a lot of examples and see a lot of <> with something in-between before the coding etc… So here are my questions.

What does<> mean and why do i need it?
Am i required to know any other language to get javascript to run?
Where can I solely use Javascript?

Any help at all will relief my frustration, so thanks for your service


The only place we see those characters is in HTML.

We don’t need any other language but it will become necessary to learn HTML if you want to run the code on a webpage, which is what it is designed to do.

In a sandbox such as repl.it, or in your browser console. It’s probably too soon to jump into Node.js if you are just getting started.
