General

All tips on the Python wiki page also apply to Coconut.

Documentation for Coconut is available here 🥥.

Functions

Use implicit function application (f x instead of f(x)) when every parameter is represented by a variable or constant value, with the exception of string literals.

print(100)
print 100

c="Coconuts"
print(42,c)
print 42c

Use infix representation for functions with two parameters.

print(42,"Coconuts")

42`print`"Coconuts"

Use the implicit form of the => operator in anonymised lambdas with one parameter (can be accessed via _).

*map(x=>print(x+21),range 5)

*map(=>print(_+21),range 5)

Integer coefficients

When multiplying an integer literal and a variable, * can be omitted, such as 2x instead of 2*x.

Arguments

There is no need to import sys to get the list of arguments, as it's possible to access it via an already imported module os.

import sys;*map(print,sys.argv)

*map(print,os.sys.argv)

Unicode operators

Some operators have unicode alternatives that could be useful for chars scoring, full list here
