Inspiration

Latin Wordle is a free and open-source project that aims to provide a fun and interactive way to learn Latin. I was inspired by the real version (linked above), and decided to make my own version for latindictionary.io. Please feel free to contribute to the project, and if you have any suggestions, please let me know! Also, go play the real (English) Wordle here.

Forking This Repo

There are no copyright restrictions on this project, so feel free to fork and use it for your own purposes. Although it you deploy this website publically we do require an attribution and link to our site.

Tech Stack

This project was built using React, Typescript, and Tailwind UI. There is no backend or database used because the word list is stored on the frontend.

Contributing

If you would like to contribute to the project, please create your own branch and submit a pull request to the main branch when you are done working.

Pruning the Word List

We are in the middle of pruning the very difficult words from the wordlist.ts so all players can have some chance at guessing the word within six guesses. We are focussing on purging words that have 3 or more consonants in a row, or forms that are very rare. If you would like to help, you can go through the process or creating your own branch or just submit a Github issue with the words that you think should be purged.

  • Date discrepancy

    Date discrepancy

    I noticed this evening that my most recent completed game was not recorded in the game stats. It turns out this is because I had pressed the Restart button earlier in the day.

    I understand the purpose here is to keep "replays" of a given word from being recorded in the stats. However, it seems there is a discrepancy in that the gameReset item that is written to local storage when the Restart button is pressed is always set to roll over at midnight local time, whereas the hour when the word of the day rolls over to the next day's word will vary in different time zones. In my case, the new word came in at 10pm local time, whereas my game was still going to be treated as a restarted game until midnight. Therefore my win at 10:30pm against the new word was not added to the stats.

    If I'm not mistaken, it seems this problem could be fixed either by treating tomorrow from lib/words as the time when the restart flag is cleared, or else by changing the logic in getWordOfDay so that the new word always drops at midnight local time.

  • Make next word start at 12:00 AM local time, fixes #28

    Make next word start at 12:00 AM local time, fixes #28

    Previously, word resets happened n-hours from midnight where n is the time difference from UTC time. This PR fixes this bug and makes all reset times at 12:00 AM local time.

  • Reveal status animation

    Reveal status animation

    Can we have the sort of left-to-right "reveal" animation that the original Wordle uses after a word has been guessed? This animation reveals the status of each letter one at a time and so increases the sense of anticipation.

    I have attempted to implement such an animation here. I have also added a two-second delay after the winning word is guessed and before the "you've won!" dialog is displayed, so as to allow the reveal animation to complete in this case.

    I've tested this in Chrome, Firefox, and Edge on Windows. I haven't tested it on mobile.

    [FEATURE] Multi-lingual Support

    Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe. I think that because Latin Wordle is for Latin words only, there should be a mode to play with purely Latin instructions and messages.

    Describe the solution you'd like Have an English-Latin toggle button or some sort of settings page that allows you to switch between languages.

A simple electron wrapper for bonk.io, a fun online game I tend to play a lot. I dunno how useful it'd be for other players, maybe they'd like the fullscreen of it, but it'll probably mostly just be for myself to play around with the source code of the game.
