Build Status

NerdPursuit

Everybody loves question & answer games, but none of those let nerdism shine. This repo gathers nerd-questions, so everybody can play geeky
questions-answer games and check the nerd level of your buddies.

Participate

Simply fork this repo, add your questions and send us a pull request. Comment commits and pull requests or create a ticket.

Thanks to marcinbunsch, who created a commandline interface to create new questions(he hates writing json). Start it with:

./creator [sub_category]

Tech

Questions are submitted as JSON, with one question per file and MUST align with our JSON-Schema. We have setup travis-ci which automatically tests all questions.

You should run the tests before sending us a pull-request:

bundle install
bundle exec ruby validate_all.rb
