In this assignment, you will communicate with a back-end API server to create the user-interface for a Minesweeper clone. It might help to familiarize yourself with the game if you've never played it.
- Understand how state drives changes to an interface in React
- Respond to user events in React
- Understand and use REST APIs
- Use React lifecycle methods
- Understand and interpret API documentation
Read over the documentation for the API we'll be using:
You will need to interpret the response and render a graphical user interface. The API results include an array of arrays (two-dimensional array), these represent rows and columns. These are probably best translated into table rows (
<tr>) and table data (
Here's an example implementation of this assignment:
- Create a new game when the page loads, and render it on the screen
- Style the cells appropriately.
- Left clicking a cell performs the
- Right/secondary clicking a cell performs the
- When the game status changed to
lost, show a victory or failure message.
- Before creating the game, prompt the user to choose: Easy, Medium, or Hard mode.
- Render your victory/failure message as it's own "screen".
- On that screen add a button to restart or play again.
- Store the current game id in
localStorage, and render the same game, rather than creating a new one every time (until the player presses the restart button).
