Re: [eclipse-scripting-dev] Find a project name for "eScriptMonkey"

I wondered if there might be some theatre slang that might suit.  Here are some possibilities:
  • LX: LX = lighting crew/equipment
  • Improv: though I suppose we're looking for determinism from our scripts
  • Soliloquy: "A monologue spoken by a character to him or herself or the audience to reveal his or her thoughts."
  • Hamlet: since we'll be introspecting and may suffer from new performance regressions with dramatic pauses :-)
  • Manet: 'A stage direction calling for a person (or more than one person) to remain on stage as others exit, corresponding to the Latin … meaning "they remain."'
My favourite:

  • Ham: "A bad actor; usually one who overacts or hogs the spotlight" — sounds like my scripts :-)

Hi,

as we want to bring eScriptMonkey to e4 rather soon, we are looking for a nice project name. What we like to find is

* a real name, not an abbreviation with some letters
* a name that is not all too common, we want to be found by google
* a name that reflects what eScriptMonkey is doing:
        -allow for dynamic scripting
        -extend Eclipse functionality with installable scripts
        -interact with the IDE
        -automate tasks
* something fresh, not related to any legacy projects

So far we had some suggestions (some of them not meeting the requirements above)

* ScriptMyEclipse
* ScriptEclipse
* Phoenix
* toth
* EasyScript
* EScript
* Eclipse ScriptingDSEE: Dynamic Script Execution Environment (pronounce: [di: si:], like the 2nd part of AC/DC)
* EASE: Eclipse Advanced Scripting Environment 4Script (If we are host in E4) Scriptic Scripto

Please add your suggestions

Christian
