For any of this to actually work and be useful, we must have a backend and DB right?

I'm building a password management application, and for a login form to actually work with AJAX - the backend and database have to be running correct?

You might be able to use a service like Firebase if you don't wanna build your own server and database from scratch.

Brendan Whiting I plan on building the back-end once I'm done learning front-end development. I guess I'll get to that point when I get to that point.

Okay cool. Just make sure whatever solution you choose, you're handling people's passwords properly - don't store unencrypted passwords in the database.

Actually the fact is you can hash the password or combine the password with other characters with just using javascript but the to add dynamically functioning to your login form it's better to use the backend programming language and a DB connetcted to your application.
