How It Works

Pick a challenge from the list of challenges. Press View Details to get information about the challenge, then choose Get Initial Code to get a blank shortcut, ready to put actions in.

Code your solution.

Test your solution by running Shortcut Challenges and choosing Run Tests. Failed tests are shown in red, passed tests are shown in green. Once all tests pass, you have beaten the challenge.

Shortcut Golf Rules

Your goal is to beat the challenge in as few actions as possible. There are some limitations on what actions you can use to make sure you actually code a solution.

  • Do not use actions that leave the shortcuts app, get user input, load online resources, or are 3rd party.
  • Your solution should work with any valid input, even if it isn't a test case. Do not just hardcode input/output pairs.
