In this video course, you’ll build your own Wordle clone for the terminal. Since Josh Wardle launched Wordle in October 2021, millions of people have played it. While you can play the original game on the Web, you’ll create your version as a command-line application and then use the Rich library to make it look good.
As you follow along in this step-by-step project, you’ll practice how to set up a simple prototype game before iteratively developing it into a solid application.
In this video course, you’ll learn how to:
- Build out a command-line application from a prototype to a polished game
- Read and validate user input
- Use Rich’s console to create an attractive user interface in the terminal
- Organize your code into functions
- Provide your users with actionable feedback
You’ll create Wyrdl, your own Wordle clone in Python. This project is for anyone getting comfortable with Python who wants to build a terminal application from the ground up. Throughout the course, you’ll build your code step-by-step while focusing on having a game that you can play from the start.
Along the way, you’ll be reading input from the user at the terminal, using
if statements, repeating actions with
while loops, organizing data in structures like lists and dictionaries, and encapsulating code with functions.
