Custom Algorithm Generator Website Released

TLDR: Check it out at https://solver.now.sh/.

I am glad to announce a custom algorithm generator website I made in JavaScript from scratch.
I originally made it so I could generate some algs for a new Roux variant, but I think it could come in handy for some other people.
I didn't use other solvers, because I wanted to have a solver that could handle custom state definitions.

The way states are defined in my solver is each sticker can be one of the listed colors.
This allows for some stickers to be anywhere in the cube for it to be considered solved, and some to only be in certain places.

In the attached images, you can see that the stickers in gray can be anything, while the colored stickers need to be those colors.
The new feature compared to other solvers is that the rainbow colored stickers can one of a few defined colors.

It also saves the current state definition between sessions, and lets you copy and paste it to share it.

Here are the attached images:

Again, you can find it at https://solver.now.sh/.



If anyone has feedback on how I can improve the website or add features, please tell me.

I’m definitely interested in seeing where this will go. I’d love to see a GUI for inputting the cube state. Once Christmas break comes im going to try to start optimizing TTLL

The interface is kind of confusing, perhaps adding a cube to show what state you have selected?

I added a GUI that shows what cube state you have selected from all angles, but you still have to input your state through the checkboxes.

The update is live at the link (https://solver.now.sh/).

Yay, thats great, thanks!

I don't know how feasible this is, but here goes. It would be nice if you could gray out an area on the cube, say last layer corners, and then it would generate an alg for each possible state in the grayed out area. Then maybe you could also black out pieces that dont need to be solve by the alg. Is that very possible? It would allow for the creation of whole alg sets at a time, not just singular algs.

Also can you make it to where you can choose a color and then tap the cube because this thing is really weird.

It is currently possible. You have to uncheck all of the checkboxes on a sticker to make it "grayed out". I have used it to make multiple short algs for all possible cases for the Roux variant I mentioned.

I agree, the current interface is very confusing. I should be able to do a bunch of work on it in the next week.
