Syntax of the Variable

is the space after message and before = for syntax or for style? Would the variable work if there is not a space there?


1 Answer

The spaces between the message and the = is just so that the code looks pretty.

// Pretty
var message = 'Hello';

// Not so pretty
var message='Hello';

Both of them work exactly the same.
