This is awesome. Was thinking about this when on IRC, and seeing some library-specific acronyms; for a seasoned dev, it's trivial to parse through what a comment is saying. For a beginner, they may have no idea.

Great site!

Thanks a lot Geoff for checking out the site :) I just included IRC cause you mentioned it in the comment above.

Definitely a reason why I created Spell It Out, since in different contexts we will find ourselves as "beginners" and don't know what an acronym means.

Let me know if you can think of any other acronyms or if you have any other suggestions.

I actually already submitted a few, and will do so if I come across some tricky ones 👍
