exercism/emacs-lisp is one of many programming language tracks you can study on This repo holds all the instructions, tests, code, & support files for Emacs Lisp exercises currently under development or implemented & available for students. If you haven't already, you can check out and study the live language track here.

🌟   The test runner is currently running Emacs 29.4

Currently the Emacs Lisp track doesn't feature a syllabus, so it only contains practice exercises. Practice exercises are open-ended problems that allow you to build and test your knowledge of a programming language. You can find the practice exercises referenced in the config.json and the files in the exercises/practice directory. The practice exercises are shared between tracks. You can find the canonical problem description in the problem specifications repository.
