Are algos python exclusive, has anyone tried it with another language like C or Javascript?


#2

Currently, Python, Rust, and Java starterkits are available.

Some users have used work arounds to work in other languages. Here is one example, there are others on the forums.


#3

There is some serious work done on C++ starter algo,
check the open pull request:

And the forum post and people involved here:

But as C1Rayn sad, this is not officially supported yet, and people using C++ are usually Terminal Veterans, with perfect understanding of the game. So starting with C++ might not be a great experience.

Even if you are not familiar with Python, Terminal is a great opportunity to learn it :slight_smile:

I use JS daily and created a bot in javascript for another large competition, so was resistant to a using hyped up language with a silly name and weird indenting, but I do find using Python my code is smaller and easier to refactor and lists are easier to manipulate. This sounds like a paid promotion for microsoft but I found editting and debugging python v frustrating until I found VS Code.
