Master Frontend Development By Cloning These Websites

Frontend development has everything to do with the client side. Everything the user can see and interact with on their web browser.

Studies show that if a website does not load within 2 seconds, users bounce. How do you think users react if a website design is not up to par with modern designs and trends?

Despite this, design is equally as essential as the frontend programming that is being done in the backend. After all, developers are frequently faced with integrating a professional design into a functional website. It’s a crucial tool in the toolbox of a front-end developer. Learn to do it well!


The goal

Master this frontend skill, by cloning these websites as close to identical as possible.

Try to incorporate functionality, like modals and dropdowns. Include responsive design, like mobile navigation, and grids.

All websites listed below are similar but just different enough to force different design concepts. For example, the majority of these websites have:

  1. Large homepage banners
  2. Big block designs
  3. Reversed grid columns
  4. Full or half-page menus
  5. Sticky or absolute positioned navigations
  6. Galleries
  7. Dropdown / accordions
  8. Minor animations like fade, or type effects
  9. Two grid columns
  10. Responsive design and more!

BONUS ????
If you want to go full-on leet mode, add javascript functionality. Like routing, dynamic content, 3rd party APIs ( i. google maps ), etc.

⚠ If you push your project up to the web, make sure to not claim your designs or assets as your own!

When logged in Netflix is a pretty simple design. Horizontal rows, galleries, with a big featured banner.

2. Hulu


The logged-in Hulu experience is very comparable to Netflix. has a sizable highlighted header and, essentially, rows of movies or TV shows with featured sections every few rows.

3. Apple


You’ll know what I mean by “big block” design. Apple does this well. It’s clean, intuitive, and pretty straightforward. If you break everything down into smaller components, you’ll see how easy it would be to implement the design.

4. Airbnb


Airbnb is such a beautiful website! The assets are amazing. Break this design down into smaller components, and you’ll see how it’s just a bunch of big rows and small rows. Blocks either span multiple columns or the entire row.

Super easy design. SpaceX is basically multiple fullscreen images with fade-up content and a link section.

Another easy, but professional-looking design. Just a banner, grid layout, and rows.

Slack’s homepage banner is entertaining. A toast banner, a call to action, a Google sign-in button, and a series of symbols representing businesses that use Slack are all included in the banner.

A great slide display with a nice fade-in effect is featured on Playstation.com’s enormous homepage banner. This can be written entirely from scratch or using a favorite library. Cloning a website forces you to consider your resources. It also has a single-row gallery, sizable featured banners, dynamic content that changes when clicked, numerous full-screen calls to action, and light animations. This is undoubtedly the webpage that looks the best to me. Really like the UI and the subtle animations. It also greatly aids in the refinement of certain design concepts.

17. Nintendo


Ah, the sweet memories of youth! Actually, I’m more of a Sega gamer. Though I digress! Nintendo.com’s homepage banner is attractive and colorful, and it contains a brief call to action underneath it. has a single-row gallery that scrolls continually, which is a new addition to the list. Thus, this will provide some excellent practice. Again, since you don’t need to reinvent the wheel each time, you may utilize a library for this. Simple huge box grid design and single row galleries are the only other features. You can try “rapid favoriting” items by selecting one row.


Conclusion! ????

That’s a wrap on “Master Frontend Development By Cloning These Websites” I really believe cloning one or multiple of these websites, will drastically improve your CSS. Cloning websites requires a lot of analytical thought as you break down designs into their smaller, more discrete components. As you approach new difficulties, you should also consider the ideal instruments. Responsive design is the next option. Using a desktop or mobile first strategy? Do you think Microsoft.com should prioritize the desktop or mobile experience, for instance? If it were up to me, I’d like to assume that most people wait to buy highly expensive items like desktops and laptops until they had access to a desktop. I would therefore probably give the desktop priority. An important portion of a front-end developer’s job is this! whether you’re a contractor or an employee.Designs are either up to you or by professional designers.
