Board Game Builder

This is a Desktop Application that loads in data from Google Sheets and lets you apply it to various "designs"/React components and then print them out. You can find the source code on GitHub.

Next Steps ⏭

  • Allow the difference between a sheet being for multiple cards or for a single card
  • Make some more generic designs
  • Deploy as a stand alone app that still watches and reloads changes from the design directory
  • Let you edit a sheet ID, so you can keep the saved state like column mapping, designs etc

Updates 🔼

Added the ability to have options and specify a column for card quantity. The options make it possible to specify a front and back design for a card and print both at the same time. The card quantity feature let's you print duplicates of some cards.

Started work on building a way to simplify printing out loads of prototype cards for building board games. This site pulls in data from Google Sheets and can apply each row of data to a specified React component. From there you can just print it out. Also includes a JavaScript filter so you can only print out exactly what you need.
