Feedback on TWikiSDKAddOn

-- RafaelAlvarez - 08 Nov 2004

Small suggestion on naming: This might be personal taste, but I find TWikiSdkAddOn easier to read then TWikiSDKAddOn. Also, use the same capitalization for the zip file so that automated scripts can discover the zip file.

-- PeterThoeny - 09 Nov 2004

If you are talking about the PluginsConformanceReport, I know that it used to look at the first attachment, regardless of what it was called, so your second issue is probably not a concern.

The matter of taste goes away for who prefer UnderscoreWikiWords.

  • It is not clear if SDKAdd is one word SDKAdd, two words SDK + Add, or two words SDKA + dd. The original TWiki used as a knowledge base for customer support had a "beautify topic name" feature where topic names were spaced-out based on the capitalization of the topic name and a list of known acronyms. For example, it changed TWikiSdkAddOn => TWiki Sdk Add On => TWiki SDK Add On. This was used to build nice names of the knowledge base entries that were pushed to the corporate web site. -- PTh

i believe peter is referring to the AutomatedPluginsDownload, et al, which do try to load the plugin zip based on the topic name. taking the first attachment will not work in all cases (though it might be made to work if taking the first non-hidden attachment?) i do need to update the docs more (will post today)

I choose the name basically to match TWikiSDK. As for the .zip file, well.. my mistake. I'll fix it in the next release (sometime this week).

-- RafaelAlvarez - 09 Nov 2004

I added a SHORTDESCRIPTION to the "Add-On Info" section so that this add-on is represented properly in the AddOnPackage topic and query topics. I also added an Add-on info table. Please feel free to take this into the next release.
