re: snake_case, camelCase, or dash-case? VIEW POST


Eye-tracking study finds that snake_case is more readable than camelCase.

I like how Ruby uses snake case for typical variables and methods and UpperCamelCase for objects and UPPER_SNAKE_CASE for constants. The convention of using the different cases to signify different things makes for a lot of good legible code IMO.


I agree with all of this, but also feel kebob case is just easy to read as snake case. I tend to prefer it for file names.

It's a good thing feelings don't trump observations found in scientific studies. Also, not everyone is the same, it turns out.


I'm just waiting for a language to come around that codifies these conventions as errors so the style arguments die.
