Sudoku solver with step-by-step guidance

Project description

Sudoku solver with step-by-step guidance

This lib is currently in pre-alpha phase, but already can solve some simple and medium level sudoku.

The following code displays all steps leading to solution:

from dokusan import entities, techniques


class Unsolvable(Exception):
    pass


def list_steps(sudoku: entities.Sudoku):
    all_techniques = (
        techniques.PencilMarking,
        techniques.LoneSingle,
        techniques.HiddenSingle,
        techniques.NakedPair,
        techniques.NakedTriplet,
        techniques.LockedCandidate,
        techniques.XYWing,
        techniques.UniqueRectangle,
    )
    while not sudoku.is_solved():
        for technique in all_techniques:
            try:
                result = technique(sudoku).first()
            except techniques.NotFound as exc:
                continue
            else:
                sudoku.update(result.changes)
                yield result
                break
            raise Unsolvable

_ = 0

sudoku = entities.Sudoku.from_list([
    [_, _, _, _, 9, _, 1, _, _],
    [_, _, _, _, _, 2, 3, _, _],
    [_, _, 7, _, _, 1, 8, 2, 5],
    [6, _, 4, _, 3, 8, 9, _, _],
    [8, 1, _, _, _, _, _, _, _],
    [_, _, 9, _, _, _, _, _, 8],
    [1, 7, _, _, _, _, 6, _, _],
    [9, _, _, _, 1, _, 7, 4, 3],
    [4, _, 3, _, 6, _, _, _, 1],
])

for step in list_steps(sudoku):
    print(step.combination)
