Create Tic Tac toe with JavaScript (Free Code)

Do you want to make a Simple Tic-Tac-Toe game using JavaScript?

In this article you will learn how to create tic tac toe game using html css and javascript. If you are a beginner in JavaScript then Tic Tac Toe Game is perfect for you. This simple javascript game will help you improve your knowledge of javascript.

Create Tic Tac Toe with JavaScript

Earlier I shared another Simple Tic-Tac-Toe JavaScript game for beginners. So I made this design in a very advanced way. Here basically we will play with the computer that is we will play with the computer.

To create this tic-tac-toe javascript first I created the basic structure by html. Then I designed it with css and finally activated this project (tic tac toe javascript code against computer) with javascript.

Tic-tac-toe Game in JavaScript

JavaScript Tic Tac Toe is a simple game where two players take turns marking a grid of 3×3 squares, typically using X and O symbols. JavaScript is a programming language that can be used to create interactive websites and games, such as a Tic Tac Toe game.

A JavaScript implementation of Tic Tac Toe would involve creating a grid of squares using HTML and CSS, and then using JavaScript to handle the logic of the game, including determining the winner and allowing players to take turns.

As you can see above this is an advanced Tic Tac Toe game that I made with javascript. Like a normal JavaScript Tic Tac Toe game, there are 9 cells and two symbols.

Here I have defined symbol “0” for user and “X” for computer. But you can change it if you want. When you click in any one of those 9 cells, another cell will automatically be filled by the computer.

Besides, I have added different types of color FF in the project (tic tac toe javascript code against computer) to make this design more modern.

How to make tic tac toe in HTML CSS and JavaScript

Now if you want to build it then you can follow the tutorial below. I have explained the complete codes step by step keeping the beginners in mind.

Hope you know the rules of this game. It is a simple javascript game where two players take turns marking the spaces in a 3×3 grid with X’s and O’s, with the goal of getting three of their marks in a row, either horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. The player who succeeds in placing three of their marks in a row is the winner.

Step 1: Basic structure of Tic Tac Toe game

First I created a basic structure of this project using the following HTML and CSS codes. Besides, I have added a heading here mainly to enhance the beauty. This heading is created by H1 tag in HTML. 

<div class="container">
  <h1>Tic-Tac-Toe</h1>

</div>
* {
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  box-sizing: border-box;
  font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
}

.container {
  min-height: 100vh;
  display: flex;
  flex-direction: column;
  align-items: center;
  justify-content: center;
  background: #eee;
}

h1 {
  font-size: 4rem;
  margin-bottom: 0.5em;
}

Basic structure of Tic Tac Toe game

Step 2: Create a place to play Tic Tac Toe games

Now create a small area for this tic tac toe javascript. Within this box are nine smaller boxes into which players can input their symbols. Also we designed this area by some css.

<div class="play-area">

</div>
.play-area {
  display: grid;
  box-shadow: 0 0 20px rgba(0,139,253,0.25);
  grid-template-columns: auto auto auto;
  background-color: #fff;
  padding: 20px;
}

Create a place to play Tic Tac Toe games

Step 3: Results of the JavaScript Tic Tac Toe game

Now another heading we need to create is within this project(How to Build Tic Tac Toe with JavaScript, HTML and CSS). This heading is mainly for showing results. 

Although this heading is currently not visible to us because there is no information in the heading. We will add this information via javascript. Results will be available automatically after Tic Tac Toe game is over.

<h2 id="winner"></h2>
h2 {
  margin-top: 1em;
  font-size: 2rem;
  margin-bottom: 0.5em;
}

Step 4: Create the game's restart button

Now we have to create a button in this simple Tic-Tac-Toe game. This button will basically work as a reset button. When you click on this button, the game will restart from a new state.

<button onclick="reset_board()">RESET</button>
button {
  outline: none;
  background: rgb(8, 88, 208);
  padding: 12px 40px;
  font-size: 1rem;
  font-weight: bold;
  color: #fff;
  border: none;
  transition: all 0.2s ease-in-out;
}

button:hover {
  cursor: pointer;
  background: green;
  color: white;
}

Results of the JavaScript Tic Tac Toe game

Step 5: Activate Simple Tic-Tac-Toe with JavaScript

Above we have designed this project(How to create a tic tac toe grid in JavaScript?). Now it’s time to make it work using JavaScript. We have used quite a bit of JavaScript code to make this game work. But don’t worry I will tell you all the codes step by step.

const player = "O";
const computer = "X";

let board_full = false;
let play_board = ["", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ""];

const board_container = document.querySelector(".play-area");
const winner_statement = document.getElementById("winner");

With these variables, you’ve defined the player and computer as “O” and “X” respectively, and created an empty board to play on. The board_full variable will be used to check if the board is full and the game is over, and the play_board array will hold the state of the game. 

The board_container variable is used to select the element on the page where the Tic Tac Toe board will be rendered, and the winner_statement variable is used to select the element where the winner statement will be displayed.

check_board_complete = () => {
  let flag = true;
  play_board.forEach(element => {
    if (element != player && element != computer) {
      flag = false;
    }
  });
  board_full = flag;
};

The function is using the forEach() method to iterate over the play_board array, and it checks if each element is not equal to the player or computer. If any element is not equal to the player or computer, it sets the flag variable to false and breaks out of the loop. 

If the loop completes and the flag variable is still true, it means that all the elements are equal to the player or computer, and the board is full. Then the board_full variable is updated to reflect that the board is full.

You can use this function at the end of the player’s turn and computer’s turn, to check if the board is full and the game is over.

const check_line = (a, b, c) => {
  return (
    play_board[a] == play_board[b] &&
    play_board[b] == play_board[c] &&
    (play_board[a] == player || play_board[a] == computer)
  );
};

The function takes in 3 arguments, a, b, c, which represent the indices of the 3 cells on the board that need to be checked for a winning line.

The function uses the ternary operator to check if the values at the indices a, b, c in the play_board array are the same and not empty. If the values are the same and not empty, the function returns true, otherwise it returns false.

You can use this function in a larger function that checks for all the possible winning combinations on the board.

const check_match = () => {
  for (i = 0; i < 9; i += 3) {
    if (check_line(i, i + 1, i + 2)) {
      document.querySelector(`#block_${i}`).classList.add("win");
      document.querySelector(`#block_${i + 1}`).classList.add("win");
      document.querySelector(`#block_${i + 2}`).classList.add("win");
      return play_board[i];
    }
  }
  for (i = 0; i < 3; i++) {
    if (check_line(i, i + 3, i + 6)) {
      document.querySelector(`#block_${i}`).classList.add("win");
      document.querySelector(`#block_${i + 3}`).classList.add("win");
      document.querySelector(`#block_${i + 6}`).classList.add("win");
      return play_board[i];
    }
  }
  if (check_line(0, 4, 8)) {
    document.querySelector("#block_0").classList.add("win");
    document.querySelector("#block_4").classList.add("win");
    document.querySelector("#block_8").classList.add("win");
    return play_board[0];
  }
  if (check_line(2, 4, 6)) {
    document.querySelector("#block_2").classList.add("win");
    document.querySelector("#block_4").classList.add("win");
    document.querySelector("#block_6").classList.add("win");
    return play_board[2];
  }
  return "";
};

The check_match() function uses two for loops to check for all the possible winning combinations on the board, both horizontally and vertically. It also includes two if statements to check for the two diagonal winning combinations.

The function uses the check_line function you created earlier to check if a line is a winning line. If a winning line is found, the function highlights the winning cells by adding the “win” class to them. This class can be used in your CSS to change the appearance of the winning cells, for example by adding a different background color.

The function also returns the value of the first cell in the winning line, which should be either “X” or “O” depending on who won the game.

You can use this function in another function that checks for a win or a draw and updates the UI accordingly.

const check_for_winner = () => {
  let res = check_match()
  if (res == player) {
    winner.innerText = "Winner is player!!";
    winner.classList.add("playerWin");
    board_full = true
  } else if (res == computer) {
    winner.innerText = "Winner is computer";
    winner.classList.add("computerWin");
    board_full = true
  } else if (board_full) {
    winner.innerText = "Draw!";
    winner.classList.add("draw");
  }
};

This code looks like it’s checking for a winner in a javascript Tic Tac Toe game. The check_line function takes in 3 indices of the play_board array and checks if the values at those indices are equal to each other and if they are equal to either the player or computer. 

The check_match function uses the check_line function to check for a winner across the rows, columns, and diagonals of the Tic Tac Toe board. If a winning line is found, the check_match function adds a “win” class to the corresponding HTML elements of the Tic Tac Toe board and returns the winning player. 

The check_for_winner function calls the check_match function and checks the returned value. If the returned value is the player, it sets the winner statement to “Winner is player!!” and adds playerWin class.

const render_board = () => {
  board_container.innerHTML = ""
  play_board.forEach((e, i) => {
    board_container.innerHTML += `<div id="block_${i}" class="block" onclick="addPlayerMove(${i})">${play_board[i]}</div>`
    if (e == player || e == computer) {
      document.querySelector(`#block_${i}`).classList.add("occupied");
    }
  });
};

The render_board() function creates a grid of divs in the HTML, each one representing a cell in the Tic-Tac-Toe board. The addPlayerMove() function allows the player to make a move by clicking on a cell in the grid. 

The check_board_complete() function checks if the board is full and the check_for_winner() function checks for a winner or draw. It also uses the check_match() function to check if any winning combination is formed.

const game_loop = () => {
  render_board();
  check_board_complete();
  check_for_winner();
}

The game_loop function combines all of these functions together to create the game loop that updates the game state and renders the game board to the user. 

It calls the render_board function to render the current state of the game board to the user, check_board_complete to check if the board is full and check_for_winner which checks if there is a winner or a draw, and updates the UI accordingly.

const addPlayerMove = e => {
  if (!board_full && play_board[e] == "") {
    play_board[e] = player;
    game_loop();
    addComputerMove();
  }
};

The above code defines a Tic Tac Toe game in JavaScript that uses HTML and CSS for the game board and styling. The game’s state is maintained in the play_board array, and the game_loop function updates the state of the game, renders the board, and checks for a winner. 

The addPlayerMove function allows players to make a move by clicking on a block on the board, and the addComputerMove function allows the computer to make a move. The check_match, check_for_winner, render_board functions are also defined and used in the game loop to check for a winner or a draw, render the board and check if the game is complete.

const addComputerMove = () => {
  if (!board_full) {
    do {
      selected = Math.floor(Math.random() * 9);
    } while (play_board[selected] != "");
    play_board[selected] = computer;
    game_loop();
  }
};

Great! Your code is now complete and should be able to run a game of javascript Tic-Tac-Toe between a player and the computer. The player can make moves by clicking on the blocks on the game board, and the computer will randomly select an available space to make its move. The code also checks for a winner or a draw after each move, and updates the game board and the winner statement accordingly.

const reset_board = () => {
  play_board = ["", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", ""];
  board_full = false;
  winner.classList.remove("playerWin");
  winner.classList.remove("computerWin");
  winner.classList.remove("draw");
  winner.innerText = "";
  render_board();
};

This code defines a function called “reset_board” that sets the play_board array back to an empty array, sets the board_full variable to false, removes any classes related to winning or drawing from the winner element, sets the inner text of the winner element to an empty string, and then calls the render_board function to update the display. This function is likely intended to be used as a way to clear the game board and start a new game.

//initial render
render_board();

That’s it, you have created a complete Tic-Tac-Toe game using JavaScript. To start the game, the player can click on any of the empty blocks on the board and the computer will automatically make its move. 

The game checks for a winner or a draw after each move and updates the board accordingly. The game can also be reset by calling the reset_board() function.

Step 6: Basic design of simple Tic-Tac-Toe game with CSS

Above we enabled Tic-tac-toe in JavaScript by JavaScript. Now we need to design it with some more CSS. We know there are 9 small boxes in this game that are currently too small for us to see. So a fixed size must be defined for each box.

.block {
  display: flex;
  width: 100px;
  height: 100px;
  align-items: center;
  justify-content: center;
  font-size: 3rem;
  font-weight: bold;
  border: 3px solid black;
  transition: background 0.2s ease-in-out;
}

.block:hover {
  cursor: pointer;
  background: #0ff30f;
}

.occupied:hover {
  background: #ff3a3a;
}

.win {
  background: #0ff30f;
}

.win:hover {
  background: #0ff30f;
}

Activate Simple Tic-Tac-Toe with JavaScript

As we can see in the above image there are 9 boxes created. But we want to hide some borders here. We will use the following CSS to hide those borders.

#block_0,
#block_1,
#block_2 {
  border-top: none;
}

#block_0,
#block_3,
#block_6 {
  border-left: none;
}

#block_6,
#block_7,
#block_8 {
  border-bottom: none;
}

#block_2,
#block_5,
#block_8 {
  border-right: none;
}
.playerWin {
  color: green;
}

.computerWin {
  color: red;
}

.draw {
  color: orangered;
}

We’ll make this project(Create a Tic-Tac-Toe with HTML and JavaScript) responsive  using a small amount of our own code. Here for Responsive only headings have been resized or reduced.

@media only screen and (max-width: 600px) {

  h1 {
    font-size: 3rem;
    margin-bottom: 0.5em;
  }

  h2 {
    margin-top: 1em;
    font-size: 1.3rem;
  }
}

Create Tic Tac Toe with JavaScript

Hope from this tutorial you got to know how I made this Simple Tic-Tac-Toe JavaScript game.

Not only this but earlier I have shared more advanced game tutorials. Earlier I shared another JavaScript Tic-Tac-Toe which is basically made by Simple Code. Where you can play with two users rather than with the computer. Be sure to comment how you like this project(How to Recreate Tic-Tac-Toe in Vanilla JavaScript).

Data Visualization in R with ggplot2: A Beginner Tutorial

A famous general is thought to have said, “A good sketch is better than a long speech.” That advice may have come from the battlefield, but it’s applicable in lots of other areas — including data science. “Sketching” out our data by visualizing it using ggplot2 in R is more impactful than simply describing the trends we find.

This is why we visualize data. We visualize data because it’s easier to learn from something that we can see rather than read. And thankfully for data analysts and data scientists who use R, there’s a tidyverse package called ggplot2 that makes data visualization a snap!

In this blog post, we’ll learn how to take some data and produce a visualization using R. To work through it, it’s best if you already have an understanding of R programming syntax, but you don’t need to be an expert or have any prior experience working with ggplot2

Tutorial: Getting Started with R and RStudio

In this tutorial we’ll learn how to begin programming with R using RStudio. We’ll install R, and RStudio RStudio, an extremely popular development environment for R. We’ll learn the key RStudio features in order to start programming in R on our own.

If you already know how to use RStudio and want to learn some tips, tricks, and shortcuts, check out this Dataquest blog post.

Tutorial: Loading and Cleaning Data with R and the tidyverse

1. Characteristics of Clean Data and Messy Data

What exactly is clean data? Clean data is accurate, complete, and in a format that is ready to analyze. Characteristics of clean data include data that are:

  • Free of duplicate rows/values
  • Error-free (e.g. free of misspellings)
  • Relevant (e.g. free of special characters)
  • The appropriate data type for analysis
  • Free of outliers (or only contain outliers have been identified/understood), and
  • Follows a “tidy data” structure

Common symptoms of messy data include data that contain:

  • Special characters (e.g. commas in numeric values)
  • Numeric values stored as text/character data types
  • Duplicate rows
  • Misspellings
  • Inaccuracies
  • White space
  • Missing data
  • Zeros instead of null values

2. Motivation

In this blog post, we will work with five property-sales datasets that are publicly available on the New York City Department of Finance Rolling Sales Data website. We encourage you to download the datasets and follow along! Each file contains one year of real estate sales data for one of New York City’s five boroughs. We will work with the following Microsoft Excel files:

  • rollingsales_bronx.xls
  • rollingsales_brooklyn.xls
  • rollingsales_manhattan.xls
  • rollingsales_queens.xls
  • rollingsales_statenisland.xls

As we work through this blog post, imagine that you are helping a friend launch their home-inspection business in New York City. You offer to help them by analyzing the data to better understand the real-estate market. But you realize that before you can analyze the data in R, you will need to diagnose and clean it first. And before you can diagnose the data, you will need to load it into R!

3. Load Data into R with readxl

Benefits of using tidyverse tools are often evident in the data-loading process. In many cases, the tidyverse package readxl will clean some data for you as Microsoft Excel data is loaded into R. If you are working with CSV data, the tidyverse readr package function read_csv() is the function to use (we’ll cover that later).

Let’s look at an example. Here’s how the Excel file for the Brooklyn borough looks:

The Brooklyn Excel file

Now let’s load the Brooklyn dataset into R from an Excel file. We’ll use the readxlpackage. We specify the function argument skip = 4 because the row that we want to use as the header (i.e. column names) is actually row 5. We can ignore the first four rows entirely and load the data into R beginning at row 5. Here’s the code:

library(readxl) # Load Excel files
brooklyn <- read_excel("rollingsales_brooklyn.xls", skip = 4)

Note we saved this dataset with the variable name brooklyn for future use.

4. View the Data with tidyr::glimpse()

The tidyverse offers a user-friendly way to view this data with the glimpse() function that is part of the tibble package. To use this package, we will need to load it for use in our current session. But rather than loading this package alone, we can load many of the tidyverse packages at one time. If you do not have the tidyverse collection of packages, install it on your machine using the following command in your R or R Studio session:

install.packages("tidyverse")

Once the package is installed, load it to memory:

library(tidyverse)

Now that tidyverse is loaded into memory, take a “glimpse” of the Brooklyn dataset:

glimpse(brooklyn)
## Observations: 20,185
## Variables: 21

## $ `SALE DATE` <dttm> 2020-04-28, 2020-03-18, 2019-0…

The glimpse() function provides a user-friendly way to view the column names and data types for all columns, or variables, in the data frame. With this function, we are also able to view the first few observations in the data frame. This data frame has 20,185 observations, or property sales records. And there are 21 variables, or columns.

Getting Started with R Markdown — Guide and Cheatsheet

In this blog post, we’ll look at how to use R Markdown. By the end, you’ll have the skills you need to produce a document or presentation using R Mardown, from scratch!

We’ll show you how to convert the default R Markdown document into a useful reference guide of your own. We encourage you to follow along by building out your own R Markdown guide, but if you prefer to just read along, that works, too!

R Markdown is an open-source tool for producing reproducible reports in R. It enables you to keep all of your code, results, plots, and writing in one place. R Markdown is particularly useful when you are producing a document for an audience that is interested in the results from your analysis, but not your code.

R Markdown is powerful because it can be used for data analysis and data science, collaborating with others, and communicating results to decision makers. With R Markdown, you have the option to export your work to numerous formats including PDF, Microsoft Word, a slideshow, or an HTML document for use in a website.

r markdown tips, tricks, and shortcuts

Turn your data analysis into pretty documents with R Markdown.

We’ll use the RStudio integrated development environment (IDE) to produce our R Markdown reference guide. If you’d like to learn more about RStudio, check out our list of 23 awesome RStudio tips and tricks!

Here at Dataquest, we love using R Markdown for coding in R and authoring content. In fact, we wrote this blog post in R Markdown! Also, learners on the Dataquest platform use R Markdown for completing their R projects.

We included fully-reproducible code examples in this blog post. When you’ve mastered the content in this post, check out our other blog post on R Markdown tips, tricks, and shortcuts.

Okay, let’s get started with building our very own R Markdown reference document!

R Markdown Guide and Cheatsheet: Quick Navigation

1. Install R Markdown

R Markdown is a free, open source tool that is installed like any other R package. Use the following command to install R Markdown:

install.packages("rmarkdown")

Now that R Markdown is installed, open a new R Markdown file in RStudio by navigating to File > New File > R Markdown…. R Markdown files have the file extension “.Rmd”.

2. Default Output Format

When you open a new R Markdown file in RStudio, a pop-up window appears that prompts you to select output format to use for the document.

New Document

The default output format is HTML. With HTML, you can easily view it in a web browser.

We recommend selecting the default HTML setting for now — it can save you time! Why? Because compiling an HTML document is generally faster than generating a PDF or other format. When you near a finished product, you change the output to the format of your choosing and then make the final touches.

One final thing to note is that the title you give your document in the pop-up above is not the file name! Navigate to File > Save As.. to name, and save, the document.
