The Game

Connect Four is a two-player connection game in which the players first choose a color and then take turns dropping colored discs from the top into a seven-column, seven-row vertically suspended grid. The pieces fall straight down, occupying the next available space within the column. The object of the game is to connect four of one's own discs of the same color next to each other vertically, horizontally, or diagonally before your opponent.

Purpose

This is a project oriented to learning the erlang language, in fiar you will find topics such as:

Stages of the project

For a procedural learning, fiar is divided into small and separate issues, grouped by iterations.

  • Iteration 1: learn the basic estructure of an erlang application, tests, process as a gen_server, and supervisor with the simple_one_for_one strategy.

  • Iteracion 2: create the fiar application module, README.md and conecting to MySQL with sumo_db.

  • Iteration 3: Provide a RESTful API to let users play, adding a basic authentication.

  • Iteration 4: Add SSE support and create a basic website with standard SSE support to let users play the game using already existing RESTful API.

How to use

Basic usage:

fiar:start().
ok

Match = fiar:start_match().
<0.163.0>

fiar:play(Match, Col).
next

play is called to make a move, and it is expected to return the atom won when the player won, drawn when de board is full and none won, and next when it is the next player's turn.

Example to vertically won:

fiar:start().
ok

Match = fiar:start_match().
<0.163.0>

fiar:play(Match, 1).
next

fiar:play(Match, 2).
next

fiar:play(Match, 1).
next

fiar:play(Match, 2).
next

fiar:play(Match, 1).
next

fiar:play(Match, 2).
next

fiar:play(Match, 1).
won
