Project Description


I require a coder to develop a Word Search that uses a html file to call JavaScript and CSS. The JavaScript will call an encrypted xml file. Nothing is server side generated, therefore, php etc is not required - just JavaScript and a bit of CSS.

The xml file contains the word search data and settings, so simply changing this file would mean a new word search is created. In the future a separate program will need to be developed to create this files programmatically, however, in this instance the xml file will just be edited by hand.

The XML File will specify:
- Word Search height and width in cells
- Words to find.
- Grid Locations of words, such as a word "JavaScript" being found in the cells 0,0 (across and down), 0,1, 0,2, 0,3 etc
- Cells with specific letters, such as 0,0 have "J", 0,1 has "A"
- Grid Text Background Colour
- Highlight Colour
- Grid Text Colour, found Words
- Words Text Colour
- Words Text Colour, found
- Word Search
- Background Colour
- Background Image

You may suggest stuff like the background colour should be stored in the css, in which case let me know so we can discuss.

As a user plays the word search, they highlight the cells, once a word is correctly found it's marked as found. On the start of the word search any cells that doesn't have specified letters in will simply have a random letter input.

Please only bid if you know how a word search works and you have strong use of JavaScript.
