The first solid-state electronic calculator was created in the early 1960s. Pocket-sized devices became available in the 1970s, especially after the Intel 4004, the first microprocessor, was developed by Intel for the Japanese calculator company Busicom. They later became used commonly within the petroleum industry (oil and gas). Find more on wikipedia page...

Let's try to build an elementary calculator.

As an input, you get a sequence of keys pressed, and, as the result of that function, you should show what will be shown on the screen when the last key is pressed.

Build calculator keyboard.

The calculator has a very simple keyboard. All digits (0-9), plus(-), minus(+) and equation sign (=).

Max digit space is 5. It means that the maximum number you can enter is "99999". The calculator ignores the 6th digit you enter. If the result is more than five digits long - "error" is shown as a result.

Input: str

Output: str


assert calculator("12") == "12"  # you see what you enter
assert (
    calculator("12+") == "12"
)  # you see what you enter, one (+) doesn't change anything
assert (
    calculator("12+15") == "15"
)  # last entered number, since the operation is not finished
assert calculator("12+15=") == "27"  # 12 + 15 = 27

How it’s used: (math is used everywhere)

Precondition: both given ints should be between -1000 and 1000

Invalid hot key. Each hot key should be unique and valid

CheckiO Extensions

CheckiO Extensions allow you to use local files to solve missions. More info in a blog post.

In order to install CheckiO client you'll need installed Python (version at least 3.8)

Install CheckiO Client first:

pip3 install checkio_client

Configure your tool

checkio --domain=py config --key=

Sync solutions into your local folder

checkio sync

(in beta testing) Launch local server so your browser can use it and sync solution between local file end extension on the fly. (doesn't work for safari)

checkio serv -d

Alternatevly, you can install Chrome extension or FF addon

checkio install-plugin
checkio install-plugin --ff
checkio install-plugin --chromium

Read more here about other functionality that the checkio client provides. Feel free to submit an issue in case of any difficulties.
