Importing the Strikt API

Add the following imports to your test:

import strikt.api.*
import strikt.assertions.*

The strikt.api package contains top level functions such as expect, expectThat, and expectThrows that you will use to create assertions as well as the API classes you will interact with if you decide to implement your own assertion functions. The strikt.assertions package contains the standard library of assertion functions.
