    <h3> how to display JSON data in HTML using ajax </h3>
    <table id="table" >
        <tr>
            <th>First Name</th>
            <th>Last Name</th>
            <th>Email</th>
        </tr>
        <tbody id="myTable"></tbody>
    </table>
    <script>
        var myArray = []
        $.ajax({
            method:'GET',
            url:'https://reqres.in/api/users',
            success:function(response){
                myArray = response.data
                buildTable(myArray)
                console.log(myArray)
            }
        })
        function buildTable(data){
            var table = document.getElementById('myTable')
            for (var i = 0; i < data.length; i++){
                var row = `<tr>
                                <td>${data[i].first_name}</td>
                                <td>${data[i].last_name}</td>
                                <td>${data[i].email}</td>
                          </tr>`
                table.innerHTML += row
            }
        }
    </script>
</body>
</html>
  1. First, we write <! DOCTYPE html> which we used as an instruction to the web browser about what version of HTML file is written in.
  2. Secondly, the <html> tag is used to indicate the beginning of an HTML document.
  3. As above now the <head> tag is used to contain information about the web page, create a <script> tag with a URL that is used to access the library of jQuery. In this tag, a <title> tag is used which helps us to specify a webpage title.
  4. Both <head> and <title> tags are Paired tags. So, both have </head> and </title> ending tags respectively.
  5. Into the <head> tag add a <script> tag with external link or using ajax.
  6. Thirdly, the <body> tag is used to define the webpage body. All the contents to show on the website are written here.
  7. <h1> tag used to add heading here.
  8. Create a <table> with the id ‘table’, using the <th> tag to add the heading of the JSON file. Then create a <tbody> tag with the id ‘myTable’.
  9. Created the <style> tag to add CSS to the HTML page.
  10. To add JavaScript Create a <script> tag.
  11. Creating a variable array named ‘myArray’
  12. By $.ajax, mention the method ‘get’ and URL to the JSON file. Calling the buildTable() function into it and using console.log() to display the array.
  13. Now creating the buildTable(data) function. Creating a variable table of document.getElementById() by the id 'myTable’
  14. Create a for loop to print the data.
