    A note about this fork

    This fork is essentially the same as with the changes of PR 11 included to fix issue 6.

    This repo isn't actively maintained and will hopefully become obsolete once an official fix exists for issue 6.

    To use this temporary plugin in your gitbook, specify:

        "plugins": ["exercises-tmp-fixed-6"]

    Below is the original

    Interactive exercises in a gitbook

    With this plugin, a book can contain interactive exercises (currently only in Javascript). An exercise is a code challenge provided to the reader, who is given a code editor to write a solution which is checked against the book author's validation code.

    How to use it?

    To use the exercises plugin in your Gitbook project, add the exercises plugin to the book.json file, then install plugins using gitbook install.

        "plugins": ["exercises"]

    Exercises format

    An exercise is defined by 4 simple parts:

    • Exercise Message/Goals (in markdown/text)
    • Initial code to show to the user, providing a starting point
    • Solution code, being a correct solution to the exercise
    • Validation code that tests the correctness of the user's input
    {% exercise %}
    Define a variable `x` equal to 10.
    {% initial %}
    var x =
    {% solution %}
    var x = 10;
    {% validation %}
    assert(x == 10);
    {% context %}
    // This is context code available everywhere
    // The user will be able to call magicFunc in his code
    function magicFunc() {
        return 3;
    {% endexercise %}

    The old format (gitbook < 2.0.0) is still supported but deprecated.
