A free open source re-creation of the Spelling Bee word game for the web.
The rules of Spelling Bee are relatively simple: you get a set of 7 letters, including one which is considered the “center letter”. Using these 7 letters, you must compose as many words as you can which contain the center letter and are at least 4 letters long.
My partner and I love playing Spelling Bee together, but we wanted to stop supporting the New York Times due to their support of anti-transgender coverage, among various other issues. So, I decided to build my own version of the game so we could continue to play it together.
The site is a Progressive Web App built with 11ty and Alpine.js.
The bee icon used for this project was created by Freepik - Flaticon
