Scary Halloween React Project 🎃👻

Scary Halloween React Project 🎃👻

For a Halloween-themed REACT app, here are some ideas for the concept, theme, and code:


* Develop a mobile app that allows users to create their own virtual Halloween costumes. * Users can choose from a variety of backgrounds, shapes, and colors to create their own unique costume. * The app could also include a feature for users to take a photo of themselves in the costume and share it on social media.
* Halloween Video Game Adventure: Create a REACT app that takes users on a spooky adventure through different levels, each with its own unique Halloween theme. * Users can collect candy, avoid ghosts, and solve puzzles to progress through the game. * The app could also include a leaderboard for users to compete with their friends to see who can complete the game the fastest.

Getting Setup:

To set up the "Haunted House Explorer" as a React project in Visual Studio Code, you can follow these steps:
Install Node.js and npm:
Before you can create a React project, you need to have Node.js and npm (Node Package Manager) installed on your computer. You can download and install them from the official website:
Create a React App:
Make sure you start by doing npm i react
Open your terminal or command prompt and navigate to the directory where you want to create your React app. Then, run the following command to create a new React app using
Create React App:
Success! Created my-haunted-house at C:\lab_react_Oct31b\my-haunted-house\my-haunted-house Inside that directory, you can run several commands:
npm start Starts the development server.
npm run build Bundles the app into static files for production.
npm test Starts the test runner.
npm run eject Removes this tool and copies build dependencies, configuration files and scripts into the app directory. If you do this, you can’t go back!
We suggest that you begin by typing:
cd my-haunted-house npm start
Happy hacking!

npx create-react-app my-haunted-house
This command will create a new directory named my-haunted-house containing all the necessary files and folders for your React app.
Navigate to the Project Directory:
After the project is created, navigate to the project directory using the terminal:
cd my-haunted-house
Open the Project in Visual Studio Code:
Open Visual Studio Code
This will open the current directory (your React app) in Visual Studio Code.
Start the Development Server:
In Visual Studio Code, open a new terminal inside the editor (Terminal -> New Terminal). Make sure you are in the project directory (my-haunted-house). Then, start the development server by running:
npm start
This will launch the development server, and your Haunted House Explorer app will be accessible at http://localhost:3000 in your web browser.
Code Implementation:
You can now create the components (HauntedHouse, RoomOne, RoomTwo, RoomThree, Door) and add the code you mentioned earlier for your Haunted House Explorer app. You can place these components in the src directory of your project. Solution:
Run the App:
As you make changes to your code, the app will automatically update in the browser. Open your web browser and navigate to http://localhost:3000 to see your Haunted House Explorer app in action.
That's it! You've successfully set up your Haunted House Explorer React project in Visual Studio Code. You can now start building and customizing your spooky haunted house adventure.

In your Door.js component, you can import the room components (e.g., RoomOne, RoomTwo, RoomThree) from their respective files. Here's how you can do it:

Assuming your Door.js, RoomOne.js, RoomTwo.js, and RoomThree.js components are located in the same directory (e.g., the src directory), you can import them like this:
jsxCopy code
import React from 'react';
import { Link } from 'react-router-dom'; // Import Link from React Router if not already imported
import RoomOne from './RoomOne'; // Import RoomOne component
import RoomTwo from './RoomTwo'; // Import RoomTwo component
import RoomThree from './RoomThree'; // Import RoomThree component

function Door() {
return (
<div className="door">
<h1>Choose a room to enter:</h1>
{/* Use Link to navigate to different rooms */}
<Link to="/room-one">Room One</Link>
<Link to="/room-two">Room Two</Link>
<Link to="/room-three">Room Three</Link>

export default Door;

In this example:
We import the RoomOne, RoomTwo, and RoomThree components using relative paths ('./RoomOne', './RoomTwo', './RoomThree') assuming they are in the same directory as Door.js.
We also import Link from react-router-dom to create navigation links.
Inside the component's JSX, we use the Link component to create links to navigate to the respective rooms. These links should match the routes defined in your React Router configuration.
Make sure you have set up your React Router routes to handle these paths (e.g., '/room-one', '/room-two', '/room-three') and render the corresponding room components.

Haunted House Activity 2:

* Using React Hooks to manage state and side effects * Using Redux to manage the global state of the app * Using React Router to manage the routing of the app * Using WebSockets to connect to a backend server and handle real-time updates
Here's a basic example of how the code for the Halloween Video Game Adventure app could look: ```jsx import React, { useState, useEffect } from 'react'; import { useHistory } from 'react-router-dom'; import { useWebSockets } from 'react-websocket';
function HalloweenGame() { const history = useHistory(); const [gameState, setGameState] = useState({ level: 1, score: 0, candies: 0, ghosts: [] }); const [websocket, setWebsocket] = useWebSockets();
useEffect(() => { // Connect to the backend server websocket.connect();
// Set up event listeners for message and error websocket.addEventListener('message', (event) => { const data = JSON.parse(; setGameState(data); });
websocket.addEventListener('error', (event) => { console.log('WebSocket connection error:', event); }); }, []);
const handlePress = () => { // Update player score and candies setGameState((prevState) => ({ ...prevState, score: prevState.score + 10, candies: prevState.candies + 5 })); };
const handleGhostPress = (ghost Index) => { // Update ghost list setGameState((prevState) => ({ ...prevState, ghosts: [...prevState.ghosts, { index: Index, score: 0 } ] })); };
return ( <div> <h1>Halloween Video Game Adventure</h1> <button onClick={handlePress}>Get more candies!</button> <ul> {, Index) => ( <li key={Index}>{ghost.index} - {ghost.score}</li> ))} </ul> <button onClick={() => history.push('/next-level')}>Go to next level</button> </div> ); }
export default HalloweenGame; ``` Of course, this is just one possible approach, and there are many ways to skin this cat. I hope this helps give you an idea of how to get started with your project! 🎃👻
Also, here is a sample data for the Halloween costume creator: ```jsx import React from 'react';
function HalloweenCostumeCreator() { const [costume, setCostume] = useState({ name: '', background: 'medium', shape: 'pumpkin', color: 'orange', accessories: [] });
const handleInputChange = (event) => { setCostume({ ...costume, []: }); };
const handleAddAccessory = () => { setCostume({ ...costume, accessories: [...costume.accessories, { name: ' Spooky Prop', description: 'A spooky prop to complete your costume' }] }); };
return ( <div> <h1>Create Your Halloween Costume</h1> <form> <label> Name: <input type="text" name="name" value={} onChange={handleInputChange} /> </label> <label> Background: <select value={costume.background} onChange={handleInputChange}> <option value="medium">Medium</option> <option value="light">Light</option> <option value="dark">Dark</option> </select> </label> <label> Shape: <select value={costume.shape} onChange={handleInputChange}> <option value="pumpkin">Pumpkin</option> <option value="skeleton">Skeleton</option> <option value="witch">Witch</option> </select> </label> <label> Color: <select value={costume.color} onChange={handleInputChange}> <option value="orange">Orange</option> <option value="green">Green</option> <option value="purple">Purple</option> </select> </label> <button onClick={handleAddAccessory}>Add Accessory</button> </form> <ul> {, Index) => ( <li key={Index}>{}</li> ))} </ul> <button onClick={() => console.log('Your costume is:', costume)}>See Your Costume</button> </div> ); }
export default HalloweenCostumeCreator; ``` This is just a simple example, but you can add more features such as different accessories, hair styles, and makeup.

Lab 2 🎃👻 Here's a fun Halloween-themed React app idea: The Halloween Candy Counter.


The app allows users to "collect" candies as they click on a "Trick or Treat" button. Each click randomly selects a candy from a predefined list and displays it on the screen. The user can see a list of all the candies they've collected, and the total count of each candy.


The app should have a dark, spooky background, perhaps with silhouettes of haunted houses, bats, and a full moon. The "Trick or Treat" button can be styled like a carved pumpkin.

styled-components for styling.
