For the past few months, I’ve been working on a word search game built using Ruby on Rails. It was a hands on learning experience as this was the first time I was using Ruby on Rails.
I’m excited to share it with you so let me know what you think of the beta version : http://wordsearch.today.
The website has a French and English version which you can find links for below :
All of the back end is in Ruby on Rails. I used the gems I developed, and you can see them in action on the “Other Users” page (async_data_fetch) , the second gem is used in the “Settings” page (gui_foldable_content). The front end uses jQuery and Bootstrap.
The backend server generates new puzzles, as the users complete them, using a dictionary of words. The words are separated in different dictionaries depending on their language. A user can pick which languages they want in the “Settings” menu.
