Re: [eclipse-scripting-dev] eScriptMonkey naming

I still like "Scriptic" although I'm slightly concerned that one could associate it with "Cryptic" which is exactly _not_ what we want to be .

What about something like "Bach" , "Fuga" , "Symphony" , "Sinfonia" , "Scriptony" 

Since we want the scripting to be able and automate all of Eclipse, "orchestrating" the various plugins into something that works together producing better workflows through automation ? Other names about famous authors or musicians would also work of course.

I think the project name is only relevant while Scripting is a separate component, to be discovered and installed separately. It should be easy to find, remember, and install. In case we should get into the Platform at some point via e4, the project name wouldn't really matter any more since then scripting is just "already there".

Hi all,

I like "Scriptic" , although it doesn't have any connection to Eclipse or what we're trying to achieve specifically with this project.

What about "EasyScript" since one goal is appealing to end users and make scripting for them very easy (regardless of scripting language) ?
I think the "ease of use" was one of the design goals behind Monkey, it strived to be as easy and widespread as Mozilla GreaseMonkey.

Shortening EasyScript, we're back to "EScript" which could be taken for "Eclipse Scripting" or "Easy Scripting".

Are there any must-have criteria why we absolutely can't take "EScript" ? Perhaps we can remove any blockers here by some other means ?

Hi Christian,

 I agree with you about the name. Something new would be better.
 However I don't really like using acronyms for name. I find it hard to remember. I would prefer something like Scriptic or ScriptOn (already taken) that seems easier to remember.
 I have thought about :
        4Script (If we are host in E4)

Objet : [eclipse-scripting-dev] eScriptMonkey naming


as the new eScriptMonkey project is growing on GitHub, I'd like to propose to find a nice new project name for it. While a eScriptMonkey is fine as a working title I would prefer a new name for following reasons:

* There already exists a project called scriptMonkey on github:

* The name very similar to EclipseMonkey. While a "monkey" would be great for icon design (which we will need in time) I think the name would let users think, that this project is a simple revival of EclipseMonkey. But it is far more than that. Actually the "monkey" part (loading scripts, having dynamic menus to organize them, the DOMs) is just one facet of the whole thing. Providing a simple module mechanism for users to contribute, shell scripting, ev. Visual scripts are things beyond the focus of EclipseMonkey (please correct me, if I'm wrong).

* eScriptMonkey (to me) seems very long as a root package name (org.eclipse.escriptmonkey...)

I am not very happy with eScript either as it sounds more like a new scripting language than what it actually is: an interpreter framework.

So I started thinking and found some candidates:

DSEE: Dynamic Script Execution Environment (pronounce: [di: si:], like the 2nd part of AC/DC)
EASE:  Eclipse Advanced Scripting Environment

Let me know what you think: do we need a better project name? Any suggestions for a decent name?

Best regards
