Card-Shuffling

A simple web application that will take in a user defined number of players and deal out a shuffled, standard deck of cards. The shuffle method used is the Fisher-Yates algorithm.

Contents

Features

  • Ability to pass in a number of players.
  • A new deck of cards is created and shuffled.
  • The deck is then distributed card by card to each player and displayed on the screen.

Technologies Used

ES6

The underlying cardDeck class and implementation are using ES6 standards.

Babel

Due to the class and implementation using ES6 standards Babel was need to transpile the ES6 code to ES2015 so that it can be understood by the browser.

Browserify

Combines the output from Babel into a single Javascript file. This is needed because the export and requires included in those files could not communicate if they were not in the same file.

HTTP-Server

A simple tool used to start a service pointing to the index.html and defaults to localhost:8080.

Mocha and Chai

Used to unit test the cardDeck class.

Contributing

In order to contribute to this repository the following build steps will need to be followed, using Babel, Browserify and HTTP-Server.

Building with Babel

When making changes to either the cards.js or main.js you will need to transpile the code with Babel to get it to the point that we can then use Browserify.

npm run babel

Browserify

With the changes transpiled to ES2015 standards by Babel. This build step will combine both files into a single file referenced by index.html.

npm run browser

HTTP-Server

Once all changes have been built and you are ready to see your changes running this command will start a new service defaulted to localhost:8080 to test the changes.

npm run start

Mocha

To run the unit tests run the following command.

npm run test
