I post on different things — Usually all tech related. Mostly about WordPress or Web Development. Today I show you how to get the Dictionary of possible words, the source code, and maybe even future solutions to the popular online game – Wordle.
UPDATE: Previously in this post I stated that you could find the Wordle answers in the source code. Well, to make it more clear… Here is a spreadsheet with the daily Wordle — Now owned by the NY Times at: https://www.nytimes.com/games/wordle/index.html — this spreadsheet has the answers by date — some past but mostly future of Wordle solutions. Have Fun…
2nd UPDATE: Now I provide a lookup tool to find any past / present / future Wordle answer. Take a look here: https://www.websitesabq.com/wordle-past-present-future-puzzle-answers/
