2048 in Emacs, and colours too

While browsing through M-x list-packages, I noticed that there was a new MELPA package that implemented the 2048 game in Emacs. I wrote the following code to colorize it. Haven’t tested the higher numbers yet, but they’re easy enough to tweak if the colours disagree with your theme. =)

    So… What’s the 2048 game please? Not heard of it?
    And are the colours somehow related to the css #123456 colour scheme?
    And how does the above work? Or a link to colouring text in the e-lisp manual please?

    @Da: This is the game https://gabrielecirulli.github.io/2048/

    It’s quite addictive to play. There goes my productivity :D

    Just met the author of this package last night at the NYC emacs Meetup – he’s going to talk next month at the Meetup about writing games in Emacs.

    • Scott Watson

      Just learned there is such a thing as “Emacs Meetup”! I’ve lead a sheltered life.

      • Me too! =) I wish there was one in Toronto, but I don’t feel like organizing one.

        The Emacs Conference was tons of fun too. =)

  • Jaocb

    Also met the author and also met verdammelt BOOM.

    • Hooray for meetups!

    • verdammelt

      Small world – but of course I don’t remember names! So hopefully I’ll meet you again at the next one!

    Although not related to emacs, I’ve written 2048 terminal version in Ruby.
