Foswiki on GitHub is open for business! Next release meeting: Monday September 29, 1300Z
TWiki has a small library of utility functions. The global namespace is called, unsurprisingly, twiki. For example:

twiki.String = {
  // code
}

Plus all files inside pub/TWikiJavascripts are named:

twiki_edit.js
twiki_renamebase.js
twiki.compressed.js
twiki.js
twikiArray.js
twikiCSS.js
twikiEvent.js
twikiForm.js
twikiFunction.js
twikiHTML.js
twikilib.js
twikiPref.js
twikiString.js
twikiStringUnicodeChars.js
twikiStyles.js
twikiuiToggle.js
twikiWindow.js

The plan

  1. Create a new location for the library. So pub/JavascriptFiles
  2. Rename the files to foswikiXXX.js
  3. Rename the js classes to foswiki.String, etc.
  4. Update all references in extensions
  5. Update documentation

Suggestion: don't wait for newName decision, use system or engine or something else neutral, don't brand yourself a second time if not absolutely necessary. Just my 2c.

I need a namespace that won't clash with other js libs. If we are to get a namespace for CPAN, I might as well use that. But the file twikiString.js might as well be named String.js

dont' think just CPAN - remember JSAN too

Wikipedia reports: "Due to social reasons Casey West left the project, the master website was lost so people couldn't upload modules, and for other reasons JSAN has had several limitations in its development."

Result:

I would not pick this open source project.
