to Two Fer in the TypeScript Track

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."


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



Install assignment dependencies:

$ yarn install

Making the test suite pass

Execute the tests with:

$ yarn test

    const expected = 'One for Alice, one for me.'

  xit('another name given', () => {
    const expected = 'One for Bob, one for me.'
class TwoFer {
  static twoFer(name = 'you') {
    return `One for ${name}, one for me.`

export default TwoFer
