2500+ Students in 350+ Institutions across 16+ states in India are using YAKSH

Online Test Interface for conducting online programming quiz.

  • Define fairly complicated programming problems and have users solve the problem.

  • Immediate verification of code solution.

  • Supports pretty much arbitrary programming questions in Python, C, C++ and simple Bash and uses "test cases" to test the implementations of the students.

  • Supports simple multiple choice questions and File uploads.

  • Since it runs on your Python, you could technically test any Python based library.

  • Scales to over 500+ simultaneous users.

About Us


At FOSSEE, Nishanth had implemented a nice django based app to test for multiple-choice questions. Prabhu Ramachandran was inspired by a programming contest that he saw at PyCon APAC 2011. Chris Boesch, who administered the contest, used a nice web application Singpath that he had built on top of GAE that basically checked your Python code, live. This made it fun and interesting.

Prabhu wanted an implementation that was not tied to GAE and hence wrote the initial cut of what is now 'Yaksh'. The idea being that anyone can use this to test students programming skills and not have to worry about grading their answers manually and instead do so on their machines.

The application has since been refactored and maintained by FOSSEE Developers.
