* Codies
This is a fork of [[][eltmon/codies]] from GitHub. I run my own instance of it
2 years ago
but, it's just for friends; the old one run by the original creator,
2 years ago
[[][]], was taken down due to copyright issues and I would prefer to
avoid the same thing happening to mine. If you would like to host this
yourself, please follow the included instructions.

*From the original README:*
Yet another Codenames webapp. Featuring:
- Custom word packs
- Timed mode
- Quick room joining
- Dark/light mode
- Responsiveness for mobile play
- And more!
This is entirely inspired by the wonderful [[][]], which works
very well, but hasn't been scaling too well recently. I wanted an
opportunity to learn TypeScript and React, and figured I could make
something that worked just as well with a few extra niceties (and a more
stable backend).
* Manual installation
** Prerequisites
First, you'll need Golang 1.15 and Node 14 for building codies. Take a
look at golang's [[][download]] page and follow the related documentation for
[[][installing with the binary]] or [[][from source]], then for Node, try
** Creating users
Running codies as root is not recommended. Please run the following
commands to create a new unprivileged user and execute all of the
commands in the following section as that user.
#+BEGIN_SRC bash
useradd -Ums /bin/bash codies
su -c /bin/bash - codies
git clone
cd codies
** Building the frontend
#+BEGIN_SRC bash
2 years ago
cd frontend
yarn install --frozen-lockfile
yarn build
** Building the backend
#+BEGIN_SRC bash
go mod download
go run
go run -o internal/pkger
go build -ldflags="-X" .
** Running
Execute the binary to ensure it all works properly:
#+BEGIN_SRC bash

./codies --debug
** Daemonizing
If you want it to start as soon as your machine boots and that it
restarts on crash, you'll need to run it with a supervisor like OpenRC,
runit, or systemd.
Below is a service file for systemd. If you want to use it, paste the
contents into ~/etc/systemd/system/codies.service~.
#+BEGIN_SRC text

ExecStart=/home/codies/codies/codies --debug
** Reverse proxy
Runing codies behind a reverse proxy is recommended. With [[][Caddy]], this is
as simple as
#+BEGIN_SRC text {
encode zstd gzip
reverse_proxy localhost:5000
For NGINX, the vhost could look something like this
#+BEGIN_SRC text
server {
listen 443 ssl http2;
listen [::]:443 ssl http2;
ssl_certificate /etc/letsencrypt/live/;
ssl_certificate_key /etc/letsencrypt/live/;
location /
proxy_pass http://localhost:5000;
proxy_http_version 1.1;
proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
proxy_set_header Connection "Upgrade";
proxy_set_header Host $host;
* Docker installation
The Dockerfile will only be kept as long as it continues working. My
goal in forking the app is to rip Docker out and package the entire
thing up in a single statically-linked binary.
I don't know whether this will actually succeed, but here you go!
#+BEGIN_SRC bash
docker build -t codies .
docker run -p 5000:5000 codies
