The Wordle Dictionary Lookup

Wordle The Popular Word Guessing Game of Covid and Twitter Wordle was based off a TV show from the 80s and has become popular on Twitter in the past few months. The game is simple, you have 6 tries to guess the word of the day. 5 letters long and only correct letters are told after you guess. If the letter is green, its in the right spot. If the letter is yellow, its in the word. Otherwise, the letter isn't in the word - and guesses have to be scrabble approved words. Why am I posting about this? Well I've had some downtime between projects and decided to make a Wordle Dictionary that takes your guess and shows you what words are possible based on your hints. I started coding this in python and realized I'd need to brush up on my HTML and CSS to make it look half decent on here. Right now the python applet works locally and I'm working on the flask framework to put it up on my site. Check out the python script on github here: WordleDictionary and see the snippet below
