🎮 WDC #26 Can you make your own "Wordle" game in Thunkable?

I already shared a sample project with all words.

You can use it from the project. It is there as a text of comma delimited words.

Here is the source of the list.

Oh haha thanks thought it would be a different type of list.

Anyways thanks

PS made Thunkable crash 3 Times to add the list:)

That is the beauty of it. It supposed to be a challenge, not just a typical app.

@lukehoogenboom0i did the builder crash or the actual app?

I know the builder isn’t a fan of long texts like that. If you store the same in a cloud variable, you can cal it from the app without bogging down the editor with all that text.

One idea is to complete a hard refresh and only have 1 Thunkable tab open plus no other resource intensive websites/apps.

Nice! Can I ask how you converted the list of words to a comma-separated list? I tried a few online converters before you posted that and none of them worked for me.

From the GitHub page, display them as raw then copy them and save them to a text block.
From here you can make a list from text using [SPACE] as the separator or cheat just like I did that I first replace [SPACE] to [COMMA] then saved it again as CSV.

Almost done! Just cleaning up the reset blocks for generating a new word and then I’ll post a more detailed share of this.

The UI is great, almost exactly like the original except for the enter and back buttons.

This is great! Here’s a glitch I found though:
I played the first time, lost and then got an alert saying that I lost and then aksing me if I wanted to share/play again. I clicked Play, and then I didn’t get an alert when I won on the 5th try. Does it check only after 6 tries?

Here are screenshots from Thunkable Live on iPhone 11. You can see there is a problem with the word AORTA. The secret word BARON only has one A but in the screenshot, both As that I played are marked as correct but in the wrong position.

I had the same issue with my project until I started removing letters I had checked already from a list and then comparing the guessed letter to the remaining letters in the list instead of the whole secret word every iteration of the loop.

You also need to add some spaces to the YOU LOST message.

i had actually encountered that same issue but i only removed the letter from the target when there’s an exact match - i should be doing the same thing for letters that are found but not in exact position!

I tried the link you posted above. Is it still the old link? There were some problems…

The secret word was CORKS. When I guessed COOPS, it showed both Os as being in the word. When I guessed CORKS on my last guess, it said YOU LOST and didn’t have spaces in the alert message.
