Could somebody please make a version of this that updates scores automatically through cookies?

I am willing to do the input stuff with html so that people can put in their usernames and passwords. However, I don't know how to use cookies or do anything backend, and I want to learn. I figured having someone work with me on the backend stuff would help teach me.

  1. cookies aren't backend, sure they can interact with backend but they aren't strictly backend.
  2. i recommend using localstorage instead, it's easier to think about.

localstorage overview: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Window/localStorage
cookies overview: https://www.w3schools.com/js/js_cookies.asp

@Coder100 ok. Thanks. I'll look into that. Do cookies require a server? I was learning how to use them on w3schools, but nothing I made worked on any of the files I created on my device. If I were to use an online editor like replit then it probably would have worked.
