Developer details

This is a fun and simple game that I often use when I'm trying to learn new technologies as I've internalized the rules. This prevents me from getting stuck trying to figure out requirements when I want to implement a simple multiplayer turn-based game.

The front-end is built in Angular 10 and is served by a nodejs server. This front-end communicates with a restful api built in express implemented in the nodejs server. All server code is implemented in Typescript rather than plain javascript to ensure type-safety. Github actions are utilitzed to automatically run unit tests, package the solution into a dockerimage, and push the dockerimage to dockerhub.

How do I get it?
