Finding a name for small examples and applications

Ludovic Dubost

Hi,

I'd like to find a nice name for the spaces for three things on
XWiki.org. These are:

1/ Skins
2/ Small sample scripts, macros, or use of radeox tags
3/ XWiki Applications

I was thinking of:

For 1/  Skins, Themes, XSkins
For 2/ Scriptlets, Snipplets, Sniplets, XScripts, XMacros, XSnips,
Xlets, XWikilets, Wikilets, WikiScripts, XWikiScripts, XSamples
For 3/ XWiki Applications, XApps

It terms of branding the usage of X could be a cool way to brand things.
So the combination: XSkins, XScripts, XApps could be nice..

Any other ideas ? or votes ?

I think the brand should be used in relation to components that are distinctive.  So for instance I would just call a skin a 'Skin' since it is a common and well understood feature in many systems.  Scriplet is also common but maybe less so in wiki technology so maybe we could start using the brand here with XWikiScriplet.  My favorite for an application is XWikiApp.

Hi,
 
The simplest is often the better.
As Xwiki is an X wiki ;-)
why not just having short names that everybody could recognize and easily associate with XWiki and with any techy names.
So I would suggest :
1) XSkins
2) XScripts
3) XApps
 
Advantage any new definition just have to start with a capital X and the second word is already known by techies.
 
Cheers
