  • Update the language attribute in the HTML tag in public/index.html
  • Update the name and short name in public/manifest.json
  • Update the strings in src/constants/strings.ts
  • Add all of the five letter words in the language to src/constants/validGuesses.ts, replacing the English words
  • Add a list of goal words in the language to src/constants/wordlist.ts, replacing the English words
  • Update the “About” modal in src/components/modals/AboutModel.tsx

  • If the language has letters that are not present in English, add them to the CharValue type in src/lib/statuses.ts and update the keyboard in src/lib/components/keyboard/Keyboard.tsx
  • If the language’s letters are made of multiple unicode characters, use a grapheme splitter at various points throughout the app or normalize the input so that all of the letters are made of a single character
  • If the language is written right-to-left, add dir="rtl" to the HTML tag in public/index.html and prepend \u202E (the unicode right-to-left override character) to the return statement of the inner function in generateEmojiGrid in src/lib/share.ts
