Yesterday I went outside. I found the Two Tunnels path. It was a rather nice day.
But enough of that. Today I solved Countdown using Node.
Give my program any anagram and in true Countdown fashion it will find the longest words you can get within about a second. I’ve basically made a computerised version of Susie Dent. It’s just not as… human.
Every time you give it an anagram, it goes through each word in the word list and checks if it fits into the anagram. It then sorts the matches by length and outputs the longest ones. Simple enough!
