Real Vim ninjas count every keystroke - do you? Head on over to vimgolf.com, pick a challenge, and show us what you've got! The rules are simple:
- Each challenge provides an input file, and an output file
- Your goal is to modify the input file such that it matches the output
- Once you install the vimgolf CLI, pick a challenge, open a prompt and put away!
When you launch a challenge from the command line, it will be downloaded from the site and a local Vim session will be launched, which will log every keystroke you make. Once you're done, simply :wq (write and quit) the session and we will score your input and upload it back to the site!
Let the games begin.
Setup & Play
1. $> gem install vimgolf 2. $> vimgolf setup (go to vimgolf.com, sign in, and grab your API key) 3. Pick a challenge on vimgolf.com 4. $> vimgolf put [challenge ID]
Todo's & Wishlist
- At the moment, scoring is done based on the simplest possible model: bytesize of your Vim script file. Instead, we'd like to assign a score based on shortcuts and key-combinations used. Ex: visual mode gets you extra x points, etc.
- Vim script parser - distinguish between different modes, keystrokes, etc.
Other patches, tips & ideas are welcome!
