Code Riddler: A platform of riddles about programming and software development in general

Hi, I came up with an idea of a platform to solve riddles about programming and software development. The platform is called "Code Riddler" and I just cooked up a prototype past week and it can be found in the link of this post. The code is not open-sourced yet since it being a prototype and all, but will be in the upcoming days. I put up 5 riddles right now, do let me know if you find it fun. Any collabs/issues/suggestions/ideas you can throw it my way. We can solve/implement it together. Happy riddling!

    Good time pass. Stuck on 4th one.

    Also, remove the "I'm proud to say.."

    @asgs Thanks you

    oh that "I'm proud of" was inspired from the Batman's "Riddler" character where he's proud of the solver's failures I put it there just to sound cheeky. Now it does seem to be rude if the user doesn't know him, will mostly remove it.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    @codekidX just change it to "you useless piece of shit"

    Better be straight to the point than being sarcastic

    "Login with github"
    Why? What if I don't want to share my github with you?

    @C0D4 That is a valid point 🤔

    The login was not needed in the 1st prototype I made, I included it because of the next feature I'm thinking of called "Challenges", in which u can challenge another user to solve a riddle.

    I'll see if I could remove login and save state to local storage, any suggestions?

    @codekidX local storage could work, or if you want a PvP kind of thing, store sessions in a db - could be completely anonymous or have a email/password as a fall back if an account is actually going to be needed.

    If you were to integrate a repo to GitHub for saved challenges and push the completed challenges, then I could see a purpose for it.

    First Issue, the redirect does not work for me. Hope its my fault. Please close the issue if it is.

    The bug is fixed now, thanks for reporting.

    The prototype code is pushed here - https://github.com/codekidX/...
    Do take a look and suggest. Code cleanup is in progress. Thanks.
