Finding the solution on the page

Note

This is a hack to get the wordle solution. Use it only when you are frustrated and just want to see the solution. It will ruin the fun of the game for you.

If you just want to know the solution, you follow these steps:

  • Right click on Wordle page.
  • Click Inspect.
  • Click the Applications tab.
  • Click on Local Storage.
  • Click on <wordle url>.
  • Click on the value gameState.
  • See value of variable solution.

This is exactly what I did the first time to find the solution. Just wanted to simulate as a single click item, hence the solution which follows.

I am not doing anything fancy. It is just that the solution is always available on the page and I am reading it and firing the keypresses to get answer.

How to use

Make a bookmark with the following URL. When on the wordle page. Click the bookmark to get solution.

javascript:function act(e){window.dispatchEvent(new KeyboardEvent("keydown",e))}const done={code:"Enter",key:"Enter",charCode:13,keyCode:13,view:window,bubbles:!0},solution=JSON.parse(window.localStorage.gameState).solution;Array.from(solution).map(e=>act({key:e})),act(done);const warn_message="This is a hack to get the wordle solution.\nWhen your press OK the solution will show.
