I'm learning to code but any ideas I come up with are too big / complex for my current skill level.
If you could order me to make a small shitpost toy program I'd be very happy.
Make me code, daddy

I'm not a big fan of building stuff as a way to learn a language. Functions and data structures, sure, but it's far more instructive to read real programs than to attempt them. Anyway, maybe you could do a text adventure or Conway's Game of Life.

Why don't you try to make a small text-editor program, like Notepad or Wordpad?

I appreciate it!
Might actually combine, my editor of choice [Textadept] is purposefully small sourced at 6k LOC total, maybe I'll try to remake it in Common Lisp. Still kinda a larger project than I was going for, but since I have something to work from it might work. Kinda like a pixie emacs in CL instead of eLisp without all of those features.

And then integrate a text adventure right into the editor, cause emacs

Clarifying, by combining I meant that then I actually have a reason to read through some real source, I've known that I should but I never get around to read just for readings sake. Doing it for a reason (rewriting) gives cause.

Going in I realized I have no idea where to even begin. There's loads of source files and I've no idea which one to start reading in. I'm pushing on though.
