Solutions with tests, tips and tutorials for Codewars katas. Almost every kata has a long solution and a shorter one, IMHO a long descriptive solution it's preferred over a cryptic one-liner, unless it's understandable for your entire team.
- Codewarriors are strongly encouraged not to look at your solutions to Kata until they have completed it themselves or at least took the time to think about their own approaches
- Codewarriors should not submit your solutions as their own
- You will not be accepting contributions of any form to this repo
- Creating a repository like this is discouraged by Codewars
Kata: is an algorithm you have to solve in any programming language you desire
Kyu: is a digit that determines kata difficulty level as well as the user rank on the platform
Node.js & ES6+ Support
Practicing katas could help you to improve your algorithmic thinking. It could also help at interviews being more confident and learning a few tricks of your preferred language. I highly recommend the Tech Interview Handbook which will help you ace your next technical interview.
There's a folder for each kata nested in its own kyu
├── 8-kyu/ │ ├── Mr. Freeze/ │ │ ├── index.js │ │ └── index.test.js │ └── ... │ ├── 7-kyu/ │ ├── Binary Addition/ │ │ ├── index.js │ │ └── index.test.js │ └── ...
This index will help you find all katas ordered alphabetically with a link to the kata folder.

To update the global index run
> npm run update-index
Create a new Kata
Since the kata generator uses some dependencies so you should install those first
> npm run install-generator-deps
To generate a new folder with an
> npm run create-kata [kata link]
Since this is a 7-kyu kata it will appear under this folder as a folder with its own title "Drying Potatoes".
Test your Might
If you want to test in watch mode uncommitted files

- After you submit your final solution check the Solutions to learn from other alternatives. If you don't understand them you can leave a comment or check the discussions of each one. Try to learn from these solutions and improve your current one or create a Short Solution of your own.
- If you check my solutions the "Long Solution" maybe is longer than the "Short Solution" but is more readable.
