I you are learning a new programming language, it is a good practice to start with small project. So once you get comfortable with the new language syntax and basics in core packages, it may be time to create something little more complex, something beyond 2-button counter app.
Elm-hangman features a list of guess words (theme: animals) and a stage done with ASCII graphics. Each failed guess adds one part on the hangman stage. Completed hangman stage results in a loss.
You can test the game on https://ellie-app.com/644ckQmqyvQa1.
To change the guess word list, update the wordList.
