fixed manual to match current Sanic app name policy #2461

merged 3 commits into from May 26, 2022


Copy link

Current app name in the manual (README) is wrong and cause an error due to Sanic app name policy

according to the error that is being raised:
"Names must begin with a character and may only contain alphanumeric characters, _, or -"

Hence, it is suggested to change the name in the example to a valid name that contains only alphanumeric chars and hyphens

It seems that Sanic has a pretty strict naming policy which doesn't allow spaces and/or comma or similar characters in the app name

following is the exception raised when using the current name as appears in the manual:
`sanic.exceptions.SanicException: Sanic instance named 'Hello World App' uses an invalid format. Names must begin with a character and may only contain alphanumeric characters, _, or -. `
now the name is both valid and readable
