An AI Generated Website

We used Bing Copilot to create a website. Here are our results.

The problem with building a website using AI is that the automation requires a lot of manual input. AI will only make one file at a time.

We used This prompt: "Write a web page in HTML and CSS for "Bills Bargains Resale Store", a used furniture store located in Weatherford, Texas. Bill's Bargains sells a wide selection of used living room furniture, used bedroom furniture, and used dining room furniture."

Here is the HTML that it generated.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<meta charset="UTF-8">
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">

 Then we asked Copilot to make a CSS file with this prompt: "Create a CSS file for the website."

Here is the resulting CSS.

The resulting website can be seen at this link:

It created a website, or at least the start of one. It's not very pretty, and it would take a long time to create the rest of the pages, set up the menus, and add the missing metadata.

It was a fun experiment, but I'll stick to our proven website-making tools.
