MIPS - adding exercises

I would like to add the Grains, Luhn, Resistor Color and Rotational Cipher exercises to MIPS. Part of my thinking is that there is sufficient time before November to have many of the following exercises available across assembly tracks:

exercise mips wasm x86-64-assembly
all-your-base :heavy_check_mark:
atbash-cipher :heavy_check_mark:
bank-account :heavy_check_mark:
circular-buffer :heavy_check_mark:
darts :heavy_check_mark:
grains :heavy_check_mark: :heavy_check_mark:
nth-prime :heavy_check_mark:
nucleotide-count :heavy_check_mark:
resistor-color :heavy_check_mark: :heavy_check_mark:
rna-transcription :heavy_check_mark: :heavy_check_mark: :heavy_check_mark:
rotational-cipher :heavy_check_mark:
scrabble-score :heavy_check_mark:
triangle :heavy_check_mark: :heavy_check_mark: :heavy_check_mark:

This sounds great, thanks. @ErikSchierboom is normally the wise guide on this but he’s away for a couple of weeks. Do you need anything to get started?

Please re-open automatically closed issues

#150 Add luhn practice exercise
#151 Add resistor-color practice exercise
#152 Add rotational-cipher practice exercise

I don’t think the issues themselves need opening as there’s not currently anything on those issues to discuss. Once you add any questions/challenges you have in creating the exercises, it’s probably worth opening them. Otherwise we’d just accept PRs :slight_smile:

@keiraville It’s great that you want to add MIPS exercises! Is there anything you need from me?

Not yet. I have some example solutions, now want to write a generator that generates tests like the existing ones.

While looking at those existing tests, I rediscovered
https://github.com/exercism/mips/pull/63 which should be merged.

Here are pull requests to re-open:



Rotational Cipher

Resistor Color
