One person on our team had made a number to letter encryption, so we decided to build off of that idea and teach people how to read encryptions.
What it does
The application introduces people to simple substitution ciphers, providing a variety of tools to learn and practice decrypting. The web app portion is a game where people can upload their own keys and encryptions then compete with friends to see who can decrypt each other's code.
How I built it
copypasta and powerpoints and tkinter and voodoo magic
Challenges I ran into
Not enough pasta to copy
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
tkinter magic is magic
What I learned
tk fonts, how to web app, how to encrypt/decrypt
What's next for Decode it!
Extend to different ciphers, track time, have a duel/showdown mode in which you compete with a friend to see who can finish first!
