Why not


Why not
no caps

H5BP member

That’s another good point. Seems weird to lowercase readme but then capitalize CHANGELOG.

H5BP member

readme is capitalized again.

I like Also is better than To me having all caps in my filenames feels somehow wrong.

H5BP member

Why not

Soon there is going to be LICENSE. But yeah, maybe we should do,, and

But yeah, maybe we should do,, and

The de facto standard file names, followed by the .md extension. Nice and consistent. +9001.

H5BP member

\o/ I'll do it at the same time as adding the license. Thanks

H5BP member

I agree with Paul.

afaik, LICENSE is convention. I haven't seen much of them in markdown.

README is convention too, but since the rise of GitHub people have been adding the .md because everyone likes pretty text. I don’t see the harm in adding an extension to LICENSE as well — makes it easier to open the file locally (i.e. double-clicking on OS X won’t work unless there’s a recognized extension) and it allows us to use pretty Markdown-style formatting that GitHub will recognize.


LICENSE, README and CHANGELOG are all uppercased by convention AFAIK but I’m fine with lowercase, too — as long as we apply it consistently to these three file names.


+1 for @mathiasbynens's last solution.
UPPERCASE STRESSES ME OUT, except for this kind of files.



When you expect LICENSE, README and CHANGELOG to be in upper-case; lower-case is a bit frustrating on case sensitive file systems.


I think consistency should come into play here. Either all lower-case or all upper-case.

When I download something like Drupal or Joomla, I can quickly tell what files are informational by all of them being upper-case.

…lower-case is a bit frustrating on case sensitive file systems.



In WordPress there are license.txt, readme.html, convetion? And looks like people are ok with this.


Since when Wordpress follow some sort of conventions ? They are able to mix php, html, css & js in a same file so... It's not a sort of model.
