Description

Actor names and parameter names are currently inconsistently formatted. They should all be camel cap/no space (e.g., DirectoryListing) With an initial cap for Actor names, and an initial lowercase for parameter names.

History

#1 Updated by Chad Berkley over 11 years ago

Changing all of the actor and parameter/port names within kepler is not feasible. Actors are created by many different people around the world and enforcing this would be more effort than it's worth, although I agree it's a good goal to have new actors follow a common naming scheme.

#2 Updated by Christopher Brooks over 11 years ago

Hmm, I disagree with marking this as WONTFIX. The issue is that actor
names should be camel cased and that Actors should have an initial capital
letter and parameters should start with lower case. My opinion is that
if an actor is shipped with Kepler, it should be made to follow the coding
convention. Consistent names help users find things and create a uniform
environment.

However, as I'm merely an observer here, I won't reopen this.

#3 Updated by Matt Jones over 11 years ago

I agree -- these should indeed be fixed, and the effort to do so is well worth it. We also should be establishing standard for future contributions to the kepler core that are explicit about these requirements. I've reopened this bug and targeted at the 1.0.0 release.
