Wordlet is a command line clone of Wordle, written in Rust.



$ cargo install wordlet


After installation, start Wordlet by typing wordlet in your terminal. Unlike Wordle, you can play at any time, and you can play multiple times per day. The game uses the same dictionary as Wordle.

Valid options are:

  • --difficulty, default is "easy". Can also be "hard".
  • --theme, default is "dark". Can also be "light"

You quit the game by pressing escape.

Nerd stuff

This was an exercise in writing a fully functional Rust program. There are probably better and more performant ways to implement the Wordlet algorithm but I purposely did not look at how Wordle was implemented.

I learned a lot (and lifted some code) from these other games: Minesweeper and Battleship. Both of those links came from the tui documentation.
