Acronym

Convert a phrase to its acronym.

Techies love their TLA (Three Letter Acronyms)!

Help generate some jargon by writing a program that converts a long name like Portable Network Graphics to its acronym (PNG).


To run the code in this exercise, you will only need to have CommandBox CLI installed. This binary runs CFML code from the command line.

To run the tests, cd into the exercise folder and run the following:

1
2
3
box task run TestRunner
# Or start up a test watcher that will rerun when files change
box task run TestRunner --:watcher

The tests leverage a library called TestBox which supports xUnit and BDD style of testing. All test suites will be written in the BDD style which uses closures to define test specs. You won't need to worry about installing TestBox. The CLI test runner will take care of that for you. You just need to be connected to the internet the first time you run it.
