Word Searcher

Your goal is to take this ready to run but useless UI word searcher and turn it into something that is visually impressive with your mad skills.

Install

  • fork it
  • bundle install
  • run it via rackup

What it does

This is a barebones Sinatra app that uses HAML from the ./views directory to serve the index page. It has a /find/{target} method that will return you words that start with a or b. This is configurable in the word_search_app.rb file but it saves on startup time.

What it could do.

This probably could do as-you-type autocompletion of words based on what you type into the input box. At minimum it should display the found words after the user submits input (oh, that form might not exist.) The UI is barebones and can be scrapped for something that better suits your tastes... a backend developer just developed the API and its up to you to make it do something interesting.
