In this assignment we’re going to style our existing page with CSS code. I will be adding a custom font and applying a new colour.

3. Liquid Assignment

In this assignment, we’re going to use Liquid to create a JSON endpoint template with data that we are going to collect later on in this course. The JSON template stores the data of our tasks collection.
