Test suite


This exercise has changed since this solution was written.

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

"One for X, one for me."

When X is a name or "you".

If the given name is "Alice", the result should be "One for Alice, one for me." If no name is given, the result should be "One for you, one for me."

For installation and learning resources, refer to the exercism help page.

For running the tests provided, you will need the Minitest gem. Open a terminal window and run the following command to install minitest:

gem install minitest

If you would like color output, you can require 'minitest/pride' in the test file, or note the alternative instruction, below, for running the test file.

Run the tests from the exercise directory using the following command:

ruby two_fer_test.rb

To include color from the command line:

ruby -r minitest/pride two_fer_test.rb


This is an exercise to introduce users to basic programming constructs, just after Hello World. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Two-fer

class TwoFerTest < Minitest::Test
  def test_no_name_given
    # skip

  def test_a_name_given

  def test_another_name_given
    assert_equal "One for Bob, one for me.", TwoFer.two_fer("Bob")

  # Problems in exercism evolve over time, as we find better ways to ask
  # questions.
  # The version number refers to the version of the problem you solved,
  # not your solution.
  # Define a constant named VERSION inside of the top level BookKeeping
  # module, which may be placed near the end of your file.
  # In your file, it will look like this:
  # module BookKeeping
  #   VERSION = 1 # Where the version number matches the one in the test.
  # end
  # If you are curious, read more about constants on RubyDoc:
  # http://ruby-doc.org/docs/ruby-doc-bundle/UsersGuide/rg/constants.html

  def test_bookkeeping
    assert_equal 1, BookKeeping::VERSION
class TwoFer
  def self.two_fer(name = "you")
    "One for #{name}, one for me."

module BookKeeping
