I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE Ruby, buuuut I am SO TIRED of typing all these frickin' underscores for snake_case! 🐍

I find snake_case a bit easier/faster to read. It's obvious if you think that "_" it's a better visual separator than a case change.

I didn't think about it until you said it, but yes, snake_case_is_annoy_to_type.

Doing PHP I can relate, even more so, because it isn't even consistent about it, some are snakes, some aren't.

Me too!.......after they're written. Just not before and during. ;)

I can relate, I use python all the time, but I always feel like camelCase flows better while typing.

When I'm switching between Ruby and JavaScript, I always end up writing camelCase for both and needing to rewrite a bunch of Ruby method names. You're so right, the flow of camelCase is just...better! (Which I guess means more efficient to write? Is this really just an issue of number-of-keystrokes?)
