A tic-tac-toe game with xxl fun

Project description


TicTacToeXXL is a tic-tac-toe game with xxl fun. The rules are the same, but there are not fixed elements – you can create a tic-tac-toe game with multiple players on a n*m grid and the first player who strikes ‘x’ movements in a row (vertical/horizontal/diagonal) wins the game. Simple as playing a tic-tac-toe game but with xxl fun.



For a manual installation, do as usual and execute the following – unpack it, go to unpacked directory and run install

tar zxf tictactoexxl-{VERSION}.tar.gz
cd tictactoexxl-{VERSION}/
python install


For a pip installation, just pip install tictactoexxl

$ pip install tictactoexxl


Once installed, just type but it will no provide you xxl fun. Check tictactoexxl help --help to customice your tic-tac-toc game, e.g.: -p3 -x5 -y5 -w4

If a game constraint is not provided, the corresponding one of standard tic-tac-toe game will be set. -x5 -y5 -w4 will set a default param -p2 that represents that the game will be set for two players.


Python 2.7 and 3.4 versions have been tested with success.


MIT License, so you can sell tictactoexxl package and no one will charge you for your action. ;)


pip install pytest coverage pytest-cov tox

Please install tox and pytest to test tictactoexxl package – coverage and pytest-cov are not required to run the tests. Just simply run tox on the tictactoexxl root directory and it will run the tests, python test will also provide the same feedback.

Skills Proof / Cheat Style

TicTacToeXXL has been created to be applied as a proof of my personal Python development practices/knowledge and prove myself to create/distribute a Python package from scratch.

If you need to create a tic-tac-toe game to submit it on a job appliance, bachelor course, university master, however, please do not cheat, and leave any temptation to read / copy tictactoexxl code. It will not be the way. Be honest, do not cheat yourself and the code reviewer who might face your truth.
