10 Line XB Entry: Python

Recommended Posts

Joystick required. Dodge the cars and get your python across the road as many times as you can!

Nice job! Love seeing all the cool stuff in the language I first coded in (besides TI BASIC (non-XB) and Apple IIe BASIC) a lifetime ago!


Until I get time to bang out a 10 line XB program, here's my 10 lines of silliness for the day from a quick REST endpoint being used for a latency test. I know...somewhat off topic...but been seeing all the cool 10 line XB things come in when I realized my quick and dirty from work today was roughly the right length. Just the wrong platform and language. ;)




public class SaasicaneRestController {

private final String fallbackQuote = "Flatulence is an oft-ignored path to inspiration";
private final Map<String, String> characterQuotes = Map.of("Yoda","Do or do not. There is no try.", "Tony Montana", "Say hello to my little friend!");

public MovieQuote findAQuote(@RequestParam(value="characterName", defaultValue="Hurricane") String characterName) {
return new MovieQuote(characterName, characterQuotes.getOrDefault(characterName, fallbackQuote));


docker run -p 8080:8080 mcmichaelwphat/moviequoteapp


curl http://localhost:8080/moviequote?characterName=Tony%20Montana

OMG. This is really good. It's smooth, nice and to the point. BITD this would have been a super game for your $9.95, - only, you'd be surprised that it loads so fast.
