to Two Fer in the F# Track

Published at Nov 03 2020 · 0 comments
Test suite

Two-fer or 2-fer is short for two for one. One for you and one for me.

Given a name, return a string with the message:

One for X, one for me.

Where X is the given name.

However, if the name is missing, return the string:

One for you, one for me.

Here are some examples:

Name String to return
Alice One for Alice, one for me.
Bob One for Bob, one for me.
One for you, one for me.
Zaphod One for Zaphod, one for me.

Running the tests

To run the tests, run the command dotnet test from within the exercise directory.

Autoformatting the code

F# source code can be formatted with the Fantomas tool.

After installing it with dotnet tool restore, run dotnet fantomas . to format code within the current directory.
