  • SurveyJS - Open-Source JSON Form Builder to Create Dynamic Forms Right in Your App

  • wordbots-core

    Client-side code for Wordbots, the card game where YOU make the cards.

    That looks neat, thanks for sharing. Speaking of sharing, it seems your repos are missing a license file (and the source files themselves don't have a licensing block that would also serve the same purpose).

    I would also recommend linking to since the version seems to boot up some horrific amount of javascript or something, because the gears just sit there for about 15 seconds before the content finally shows up

    Separately, do you know if the vocabulary for wordbots would tolerate the vocabulary for M:TG? IOW, is it possible to "port-over" some of the cards?

  • wordbots-parser

    A game-semantics CCG parser for Wordbots, the user-driven collectible card game. Yes, it's a CCG for CCGs.

    Oops, lack of licenses was my bad - good catch! Just added LICENSEs to clarify that both the game ( and the parser ( are MIT-licensed.

  • SurveyJS

    Open-Source JSON Form Builder to Create Dynamic Forms Right in Your App. With SurveyJS form UI libraries, you can build and style forms in a fully-integrated drag & drop form builder, render them in your JS app, and store form submission data in any backend, inc. PHP, ASP.NET Core, and Node.js.

  • untrusted

    A meta-JavaScript adventure game by Alex Nisnevich and Greg Shuflin.

    Also, while not related to Wordbots, Alex has a cool JS sandbox-escape-y game ( CC-BY-NC-SA 3.0) that I thought was fun and you might, too
