Emacs Lisp Koans
I’ve started elisp-koans, a guided tour of Emacs Lisp (elisp) through
elisp-koans is adapted from Google’s Common Lisp
Koans, which was in turn inspired by the family of TDD Koans, e.g. Ruby Koans
and Python Koans.
How it works
You begin by cloning the koans, suites of tests which describe how Emacs Lisp and its libraries behave. The tests are initially broken, and fixing them walks you through Emacs Lisp as well as its testing framework (ERT).
Here’s the first test, which would be fixed by swapping
described in the docstring:
(elisp-koans/deftest elisp-koans/asserts-true () "`t' is true. Replace the blank with `t' to assert it is true" (should ___))
I’ll be adding additional suites as I learn elisp.
