How to use

Users are required to solve 30 tasks that take them through the basic constructs of the programming language of their choice. The tasks are designed in such a way that the complexity increases as users progress through the tasks. Users can't move forward until the current task is completed (since the progress is determined by a unique key that is generated upon successful completion). Previously submitted tasks can be viewed as desired by the user but can't be worked on again.

  • teachcode expects you to have a GitHub account. Make sure that you create one if that's not the case.
  • Navigate to the directory of your choice and type in teachcode init.
  • Follow the instructions as prompted.
  • Now type in cd teachcode-solutions.
  • Grab the initial key and type in teachcode fetchtask <key>.
  • Hurray :tada: you've got your first task.
  • Now you can find a config.json and task1.py (language of choice) file within the teachcode-solutions directory.
  • Open up your favourite editor and code up the solution.
  • Now type in teachcode submit.
  • Enter your Git credentials when prompted.
  • If the current solution satisfies all test cases, you'll get the key to proceed with.
  • Grab the key and type in teachcode fetchtask <key>.

How should I write a commit message?

This project uses Commitlint to check if the commit messages meet the conventional commit format.

The full pattern is:

type(scope?): subject #scope is optional

body? #body is optional

footer? #footer is optional

Following that pattern, your commit messages should look like these:

feat: activate open collective
chore: correct typo

It should be "guest" and not "gest"
refactor(cli): drop support for node 6

BREAKING CHANGE: you will need to update your node version to keep using this CLI
This closes #123

How should I name my branches?

Prefix your branch names with feat/, docs/ or hotfix/ for feature proposals, documentation and bug fixes, respectively.
