Flags.lol update!
Ziischtig,27 April, 2021

In the enthusiasm of moving much of my stack to svelte I re-wrote flags.lol a simple game inspired from “fun with flags” from the series big bang theory.

The first version was written in go with a mysql backend (to host the flag codes and file locations) and the game features , due to my limited knowledge of go, where very limited.

So what changed?

  • Better design with new fonts
  • Timer and easy way to select flags from the randomised pool
  • Flags are no longer images but emojis!
  • Usability improvements for both mobile and web
  • Go/MySQL to Svelte and no database.

Nothing groundbreaking but a simple game now using a serverless architecture.

Have fun with flags.lol
