We’ve deployed it on Codesphere so that you can play it yourself here
How it works
Javasc-ordle(Working title) works by taking a github gist of a function, and blurring out the contents of the function.
The player then can guess different words to release them in the function.
Once the player believes they know how the function works, they can guess the output for the given parameter.
Let’s actually build it!
We built the game with React, you can check out the code here:
As you can see, we start by pulling the gist and creating a version with redacted terms. Then we add functions to allow the player to guess both terms and the output, and perform the correct actions whenever they make a correct guess
Now we could probably do a lot more with this, including:
- Adding a whole schedule of gists
- Adding compatibility for multiple languages
But this was a fun way to get started! Let us know if you want us to build this out more!
