We will use the results to seed rankings and play our final tournament on Saturday, April 8th at 2pm.

Goal

If you never played Wordle, give it a quick play.

Your goal is to create a WordleAI bot that can guess a 5 letter word.

Getting started:

  1. Create an account on http://replit.com/ 

  2. Click the link below:
    https://replit.com/@PopcornWordle/PopcornRobotWordle

  3. Fork the workspace.

How it works:

Open the file ai.py. Your code will go in the run() function.

print_all = True

 

def run(data, word_list):

  return 'trust'

This is your AI. Whatever you return is your guess. The code above guesses “trust” on every turn. 

 

print_all is a boolean variable. If you want to see all the messages, set it to True.

 

run() has 2 arguments, data and word_list.

  • The data argument is a summary of the guesses for the current word.

    The status codes are:
    2 - (Green) correct letter in correct place

    1 - (Yellow) letter in word but wrong place
    0 - (Gray) letter not in word

    ​​​​For example:
    If the answer is “COAST” but you guessed “DETER” and “BRAIN”, your argument will look like this:


    data = [
         {"word": "deter", "status": "00100"}
         {"word":"brain","status":"00200"}
    ]


 

  • The word_list argument is the word bank we are drawing the answers from in the game.

When do we work on it:

We want you to get in the habit of coding out of class.

 

That's why we expect you to do the bulk of work on your free time.

The first 30 minutes of class, however, will be dedicated to helping you with Wordle questions. The rest of class should be dedicated to working on the lessons.
