The katt package

[ Tags: bsd3, library, program, utils ] [ Propose Tags ]

Unofficial CLI client for the Kattis online judge system (currently in BETA).

Written in a git-like fashion, it supports automatic downloading of test cases, easy submissions, and more.

Basically a problem is initialized as follows (creates a directory and downloads any available test cases):

> katt init hello
> cd hello

Source files, problem names, and language identification is handled automatically when submitting solutions:

> vim
> katt submit
Made submission 4712
Accepted: 1 of 1 test(s) passed

There is also built-in support for problem sessions, which initalizes all problems in the problem list.

Get started by downloading a .kattisrc config from the official site, make sure you have the haskell platform installed, then run cabal install katt.

Please note that the beta release is limited to C, C++, Java, and Haskell. It also only supports running on unix.
