[WARNING: ONE LINE POST] Code Golf: 99 Bottles (JS: 182 bytes)

This is one line, but a surprising amount of effort went into this one little line.

For those unfamiliar with Code Golf, the goal is to make a program complete a given task in the smallest amount of bytes.

The challenge I took on was the 99 Bottles song. The program must output this song:

``````99 bottles of beer on the wall, 99 bottles of beer.
Take one down and pass it around, 98 bottles of beer on the wall.
98 bottles of beer on the wall, 98 bottles of beer.
Take one down and pass it around, 97 bottles of beer on the wall.
...

2 bottles of beer on the wall, 2 bottles of beer.
Take one down and pass it around, 1 bottle of beer on the wall.
1 bottle of beer on the wall, 1 bottle of beer.
Take one down and pass it around, no more bottles of beer on the wall.``````

Keep in mind plurals.

I actually did this some time ago, and @Kognise and I actually combined our solutions. Unfortunately I realized that solution didn't output the lyrics correctly. So I present to you, my best solution I could create in 182 bytes in JS.

``for(i=99;i>0;i--)console.log(`\${a=' bottle',b=a+(i>1?'s':''),c=' of beer',d=' on the wall',i+b+c}\${d}, \${i+b+c}.\nTake one down and pass it around, \${i>1?i-1:'no more'}\${a}s\${c+d}.`)``

This is code at it's most cursed.

This is one of the good ones

WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR PROFILE PICTURE IT GOT CUTER

pyelias (2405)

you can take `i--` out of the for loop and change `i>1?i-1:'no more'` to `--i||'no more'` for 176 chars

pyelias (2405)

@Zavexeon also you can do `b=a+(i>1?'s':'')+(c=' of beer')` for 172

pyelias (2405)

@Zavexeon nvm, the pluralization in the second to last line breaks if you do that
its fixed with

``for(i=99;i;)console.log((p=_=>l=`\${i||'no more'} bottle\${i^1?'s':''} of beer`)(a=' on the wall')+a+`, \${l}.\nTake one down and pass it around, \${p(--i)+a}.`)``

(157), but thats pretty much a separate solution at this point.

@pyelias Smh stop making me feel inferior aaaaa

sycrepl (10)

Tried my best but couldn't do better, here's the code if you want, it sucks

``for(i=99;i>0;i--)console.log(`\${s=`\${i} bottle\${i>1?"s":""}`} of beer on the wall, \${s} of beer.\nTake one down, pass it around, \${i>1?s=`\${i - 1} bottle\${i>1?"s":""}`:"no more bottles"} of beer on the wall.`)``
Zavexeon (1158)

@sycrepl It passes the cursed code test.

129 bytes in raku

``{say "\$_ @_[*]!\n\$_ @_[0]!\nTake one down,\nPass it around,\n{\$_-1||'No'} more @_[*]"}("bottles of beer","on the wall")for 99…1``

@theangryepicbanana Smh. OnLY Js Is FAiR GaME iN ThiS ThReAD

m3l0f1 (11)

does this count? 158 bytes

``for(i=99;i>0;i--)console.log((b=n=>n+" bottle"+(n!=1?"s":"")+" of beer")(i),(c="on the wall")+",",b(i)+".","\nTake one down and pass it around,",b(i-1),c+".")``

i feel like i'm missing something.

m3l0f1 (11)

@m3l0f1 ah, i'm missing the "no more bottles" part

m3l0f1 (11)

@m3l0f1 yep 178 bytes

``for(i=99;i>0;i--)console.log((b=n=>(n!=0?n+" bottle"+(n!=1?"s":"")+" of":"no more")+" beer")(i),(c="on the wall")+",",b(i)+".","\nTake one down and pass it around,",b(i-1),c+".")``

LMAO I have the exact same code in a repl from 2 months ago :P

https://repl.it/@Kognise/Beer

Zavexeon (1158)

@Kognise Wait what? (Oh wait, yeah remember when we did that code golf and combined our code, did you copy and paste mine for better reference?)

Edit: No longer exact anyways, just realized this also sings the song wrong. Had to add two extra bytes to fix smh.

Kognise (437)

@Zavexeon idk anymore

(plagiarism somewhere, I can feel it)

Zavexeon (1158)

@Kognise I did use elements from your solution (such as defining variables in the template literal) but I didn't copy and paste anything, I wrote it all out.
