Robot Name

Manage robot factory settings.

When robots come off the factory floor, they have no name.

The first time you boot them up, a random name is generated in the format of two uppercase letters followed by three digits, such as RX837 or BC811.

Every once in a while we need to reset a robot to its factory settings, which means that their name gets wiped. The next time you ask, it will respond with a new random name.

The names must be random: they should not follow a predictable sequence. Random names means a risk of collisions. Your solution must ensure that every existing robot has a unique name.

Setup

Go through the setup instructions for JavaScript to install the necessary dependencies:

Making the Test Suite Pass

Execute the tests with:

1
jasmine <exercise-name>.spec.js

Replace <exercise-name> with the name of the current exercise. E.g., to test the Hello World exercise:

1
jasmine hello-world.spec.js

In many test suites all but the first test have been skipped.

Once you get a test passing, you can unskip the next one by changing xit to it.
