Document Object Model

DOM is the acronym for Document Object Model.

A programming interface for HTML and XML documents. The DOM represents the structure of a web page as a tree-like structure, where each node in the tree represents a different element or object on the page, such as headings, paragraphs, images, and forms.

The DOM is a platform- and language-neutral interface that allows web developers to dynamically access and manipulate the content and structure of a web page using programming languages such as JavaScript. By using the DOM, developers can create interactive web pages and web applications that respond to user input, update content dynamically, and modify the layout and appearance of a page in response to changes in the page content.

The DOM provides a standard set of methods and properties that can be used to access and manipulate web page elements. For example, the getElementById() method can be used to retrieve a specific element on a page based on its unique ID, while the innerHTML property can be used to modify the content of an element.

In addition to its use in client-side scripting, the DOM is also used in server-side web development frameworks, such as Node.js, to manipulate HTML and XML documents programmatically. The DOM is a core technology of the web platform and is an essential tool for web developers.
