Building the Wordle Game with Elixir and Phoenix LiveView

What You Will Learn in This Course

In this course we are going to build the Wordle game with Elixir and Phoenix Liveview

This course provides a great introduction to Elixir and Phoenix LiveView through a hands-on project.

To make a game like the Wordle game we will learn the following topics step by step:

  1. Understanding Phoenix LiveView Callbacks
  2. Managing click events with LiveView
  3. Handling keyboard events with LiveView
  4. Understand Live Components and how to integrate them with LiveView pages
  5. Utilizing Elixir's pattern matching for cleaner, more readable code
  6. Separating game logic from presentation by designing a Game Engine Module
  7. Implementing all the core logic of the game using Test-Driven Development (TDD)
  8. Adding animations to your LiveView applications with Tailwind CSS and LiveView features
  9. Employing minimal JavaScript to respond to client-side events without server-side events
  10. Using push_events to communicate from server to client with LiveView
  11. Creating a GenServer to manage the game state, understanding its main callbacks, and their applications

By the end of this course, you will have developed a fully-featured Wordle game to showcase to your friends and colleagues.

What You Will Get With This Course

  1. Immediate and lifetime access to all course content, including videos and materials.
  2. Early access to upcoming classes designed to enhance the game even further.
