    Basic Example

     * Proper way to enqueue scripts and styles.
    function wpdocs_theme_name_scripts() {
        wp_enqueue_style( 'style-name', get_stylesheet_uri() );
        wp_enqueue_script( 'script-name', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/example.js', array(), '1.0.0', true );

    This actions passes an argument $hook that is handy when for example to prevent the script from loading on certain pages;

    function wpdocs_enqueue_scripts( $hook ) {
    	// Load only in add new post page
    	if ( is_admin() && 'post-new.php' !== $hook ) {
    	// rest of your code here..
    add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'wpdocs_enqueue_scripts' );
