Open Source Wordle in a bunch of languages

PULL REQUESTS WELCOME!

It would be mega awesome if you could help in any way (especially with language addition/curation).

How to add a new language:

  1. Make a folder in webapp/data/languages/ with the language code (e.g. en, de, fr, qya, etc.)
  2. Add a list of 5-letter words and call it {lang_code}_5words.txt
    1. (Optional) Add a language_config.json file
    2. (Optional) Add a keyboard configuration
    3. (Optional) Add a list of supplemental words (useful to have this for weird/rare words, and only have 'common' words in the main 5words.txt file)

Voilà!

How to run locally

If you want to test out your changes, you can run the server locally.

  1. Install Python 3

  2. Install requirements pip3 install -r requirements.txt

  3. Run web server locally gunicorn --chdir webapp app:app

  4. Navigate to http://127.0.0.1:8000/

TODOs

  • take into account browser bar height on mobile
  • curate wordlists for existing languages
  • add keyboard layouts for existing languages
  • add more languages
  • fully translate game interface (missing score streaks and options)

Potential improvements:

  • nice animations for revealing letters & such
  • make a 4, 6, 7 letter version
  • deal with accents & character modifiers better (e.g. french is horrible right now)

Nice to haves:

  • improve code quality (e.g. make variable names consistent, code more reusable & less hacky)
  • properly integrate TailwindCSS and Vue.js (i.e. not from CDN)
  • tests...
