Last, create a JavaScript file with the name script.js and paste the given codes into your JavaScript file. Remember, you’ve to create a file with a .js extension and it should be inside the js folder.

const inputs = document.querySelector(".inputs"),
hintTag = document.querySelector(".hint span"),
guessLeft = document.querySelector(".guess-left span"),
wrongLetter = document.querySelector(".wrong-letter span"),
resetBtn = document.querySelector(".reset-btn"),
typingInput = document.querySelector(".typing-input");

let word, maxGuesses, incorrectLetters = [], correctLetters = [];

function randomWord() 
    let ranItem = wordList[Math.floor(Math.random() * wordList.length)];
    word = ranItem.word;
    maxGuesses = word.length >= 5 ? 8 : 6;
    correctLetters = []; incorrectLetters = [];
    hintTag.innerText = ranItem.hint;
    guessLeft.innerText = maxGuesses;
    wrongLetter.innerText = incorrectLetters;

    let html = "";
    for (let i = 0; i < word.length; i++) 
        html += `<input type="text" disabled>`;
        inputs.innerHTML = html;
    

randomWord();

function initGame(e) {
    let key = e.target.value.toLowerCase();
    if(key.match(/^[A-Za-z]+$/) && !incorrectLetters.includes(` $key`) && !correctLetters.includes(key)) 
        if(word.includes(key)) 
            for (let i = 0; i < word.length; i++) 
                if(word[i] == key) 
                    correctLetters += key;
                    inputs.querySelectorAll("input")[i].value = key;
                
            
         else 
            maxGuesses--;
            incorrectLetters.push(` $key`);
        
        guessLeft.innerText = maxGuesses;
        wrongLetter.innerText = incorrectLetters;
    
    typingInput.value = "";

    setTimeout(() => 
        if(correctLetters.length === word.length) 
            alert(`Congrats! You found the word $word.toUpperCase()`);
            return randomWord();
         else if(maxGuesses < 1) 
            alert("Game over! You don't have remaining guesses");
            for(let i = 0; i < word.length; i++) 
                inputs.querySelectorAll("input")[i].value = word[i];
            
        
    , 100);
}

resetBtn.addEventListener("click", randomWord);
typingInput.addEventListener("input", initGame);
inputs.addEventListener("click", () => typingInput.focus());
document.addEventListener("keydown", () => typingInput.focus());
