Do you use NerdCaps?
By Pete Freitag
CamelCase may be a term that web developers are not as fimiliar with, as traditional Java or C developers may be, but none the less, is useful to know what it means. You may infact use CamelCase already when you code, but not even know it.
CamelCase is simply a way of creating variable names for compound words. When you capatolize each new word, for example
MiddleName you're using Camel Case. The first letter of the CamelCase word can either be upper case or lower case, if you use upper case, it's known as UpperCamelCase. If the first letter is lower case, then you call it lowerCamelCase.
The Wikipedia has lots more info including the history of CamelCase, as well as as list of CamelCase synonyms:
- CapWords in Python
- mixedCase (for lowerCamelCase) in Python
- ClCl (Capital-lower Capital-lower) and sometimes ClC
- WordsStrungTogether or WordsRunTogether
My favorite is NerdCaps
