Wordle game using ReactJS

Wordle game using ReactJS

Wordle is a word puzzle game where players guess a hidden word within a limited number of tries.


  • Basic knowledge of JavaScript and ReactJS
  • Node.js and npm installed on your system

Step 1: Setup

  1. Create a new React app using Create React App. Open your terminal and run:
    npx create-react-app wordle-game
    cd wordle-game

Step 2: Component Structure

  1. In the src directory, create a new component folder named Wordle.
  2. Inside the Wordle folder, create three files: Wordle.js, WordInput.js, and App.css.

Step 3: Implement the Components

  1. Open Wordle.js and define the basic structure of the game board. This component will manage the game state and render the game elements.
import React, { useState } from 'react';
import './App.css';
import WordInput from './WordInput';

const Wordle = () => {
  const [targetWord, setTargetWord] = useState('apple'); // Replace with your own word
  const [guess, setGuess] = useState('');
  const [attempts, setAttempts] = useState(0);

  const handleGuess = (guessedWord) => {
    setAttempts(attempts + 1);

  return (
    <div className="wordle">
      <h1>Wordle Game</h1>
      <p>Guess the 5-letter word in 10 attempts!</p>
      <WordInput onGuess={handleGuess} />
      <p>Your guess: {guess}</p>
      <p>Attempts: {attempts}</p>

export default Wordle;
  1. Open WordInput.js and create an input field where the player can guess words.
import React, { useState } from 'react';

const WordInput = ({ onGuess }) => {
  const [inputValue, setInputValue] = useState('');

  const handleChange = (e) => {

  const handleSubmit = (e) => {

  return (
    <form onSubmit={handleSubmit}>
      <button type="submit">Guess</button>

export default WordInput;
  1. Open App.css and add some basic styling to make the game look better.
.wordle {
  text-align: center;
  margin-top: 50px;

input {
  padding: 5px;
  margin-right: 10px;
  text-transform: uppercase;


Step 4: Run the Application

  1. Save your changes and return to the root directory of your app.
  2. In the terminal, run npm start to start the development server.
  3. Open your web browser and navigate to http://localhost:3000 to see your Wordle game in action!
