How do I repeat more HTML using Javascript?

Hey this is my first question on the Treehouse community so i'm hoping you guys can help!

I am doing a personal project and I am creating a table which has multiple rows. I'm using Flexbox to do this (mainly due to how i want the table to react on responsive.

I don't want to have to bulk out my HTML by repeating the code for each row, i'd rather use Javascript to repeat the code. I have found examples and solutions online for something as simple as <div>col-1</div> and repeating that simple bit of code with a count of +1, but my need is a bit more complex?

The current html I have for the section is this:

<div id="row-1" class="light-row"> <div class="date row-item first-row-item">xx/xx/xx</div> <div class="title row-item">Article title goes here</div> <div class="author row-item"> <div class="avatar"></div> <div class="author-name">Author Name</div> </div> <div class="description row-item last-row-item">Description goes here</div> </div>

(sorry for the lack of indentation in the message, doesn't seem to let me do it?)

I essentially want to repeat this code and incrementing the div id by +1. Is this possible?

Thanks in advance!

You can do the following with jquery

for (let i=0; i<10; i++){
let html = `<div id='row-${i}' class='light-row'> <div class='date row-item first-row-item'>xx/xx/xx</div> <div class='title row-item'>Article title goes here</div> <div class='author row-item'> <div class='avatar'></div> <div class='author-name'>Author Name</div> </div> <div class='description row-item last-row-item'>Description goes here</div> </div>`;
