Tell me a story I could code

2018-05-06 / about a minute.

Hello everyone! Today one colleague and friend of mine, Gaetan, would like to propose you a simple (or not) concept!

It's a code of which you are the story teller!



Let me explain! We propose you to tell a story (a little one), sentence by sentence. Each time a sentences is selected, we will try to express the story into code.

An exemple is worth 1000 speech so here is the start of our story:

"Once upon a time, a young knight name Bob found a penny!"

struct Story {
    pub time: &'static str,
    pub main_character: Character,

struct Character {
    pub name: &'static str,
    pub money: i32,

fn found_a_strange_penny(character: &mut Character) {
    character.money += 1;
    println!("Oh a penny! \" said {}.\"", character.name);

fn main() {
    let mut story = Story {
        time: "Once upon a time",
        main_character: Character {
            name: "Bob",
            money: 0,

    found_a_strange_penny(&mut story.main_character);

All the code will live in this repository.

So, it's up to you, reader, to continue the story. Post a comment with one sentence or two and we will try to code that. We will choose the comment that appeal us the most!

Start :p
