This project contains a set of problems to help you get your hands dirty with Clojure. I hope we can add more problems and treat this as an ongoing project.
The project is set up so that you can solve problems one by one. All the problem skeletons are set up here, which is the place you can put your solutions.
Set up your environment
We need Java and Clojure to be configured on your machine. If you are a Windows user, please visit this page on how to install Java. If you are a Mac OS user, please make sure that your XCode is updated to include updated Java.
Java version needs to be 1.5 or up; Clojure version needs to be 1.5 or up.
Clojure Katas also relies on Leiningen, a Clojure dependency management tool. After you installed Java and Clojure, you can follow their install instruction to install Leiningen.
Run Clojure Katas
To verify your answer, you can run:
$ lein katas-run
We also implemented solution manual, to run katas with their solutions;
$ lein katas-answers
Look for contributors
We want to keep this project ongoing, if you are interested in helping out, feel free to:
- Open an issue (I will try to be as responsive as possible! :-)).
- Submit a Pull Request (bugfix, or submit a new problem!)
If you have any questions, feel free to messaage me on Github or Twitter: @marshallshen
Many thanks to the contributors, you made this project awesome!
Example: solve a kata
Say arranged-prob is not implemented under
$ lein katas-run Performing task 'run' with profile(s): 'test' Current kata to tackle: clojure-katas.sine-angle/sine false
After arranged-prob is implemented, it moves to the next problem:
Performing task 'run' with profile(s): 'test' Testing clojure-katas.sine-angle-test Ran 1 tests containing 2 assertions. 0 failures, 0 errors. Current kata to tackle: clojure-katas.arranged-prob/prob false
Example: create a new kata
/src-answers/clojure-katas/arranged_prob.clj for solution.
(defn prob "p: total population, m: total number of sub-category, n: number of consecutive draws" [p, m, n] (if (>= 0 n) 1 (* (double (/ m p)) (prob (- p 1) (- m 1) (- n 1)))))
/src/clojure-katas/arranged_prob.clj for problem challenge.
core/defproblem, you are required to put comments to
describe the problem.
(ns clojure-katas.arranged-prob (:require [clojure-katas.core :as core])) (core/defproblem prob "required documentation goes here" [p, m, n])
Creates test under
(deftest arranged-prob-test (testing "conditional probability" (is (= (float 0.12311558) (float (prob 200 100 3))))))
Add clojure-katas.arranged-prob-test inside the problemsets defined in test_runner
(def problems '[clojure-katas.sine-angle-test clojure-katas.arranged-prob-test))
Run through solution to make sure it works:
$ lein katas-answers
- Clojure 1.5.1
- Leiningen 2.4.1
