Crossword solver

Filed under: Javascript,jQuery,Web — duncan @ 4:12 pm

Here’s a little something I built for myself, with the intention of helping to complete crosswords. It’s quite annoying when you’ve got 80 – 90% through one and with only a few obscure words left to complete.

This lets you:

  • create a blank crossword
  • fill out any letters in it you’ve already got
  • look up words for any you’ve only got some of the letters for

It doesn’t as yet let you save them and re-load.

The front end uses jQuery; server-side it’s using ColdFusion, with a dictionary of 90,000+ words.

Anyway, here it is; let me know any feedback:
