Conventions.CodingStyle

French | Italian | Spanish

For better readability and standardization of VVVV related code we should all conform to the coding styles below:

Casing

Definitions

Pascal Casing

 RedHotChilliPeppers

Camel Casing

 redHotChilliPeppers

Classes

  • Pascal Casing
//good
class RedHot
 
//bad
class TRedHot
class redhot

Interfaces

  • start with an I (for Interface) and then Pascal Casing
//good
interface IRedHot
 
//bad
interface RedHotInterface
interface Iredhot

Class Variables

  • start with an F (for Field) and then Pascal Casing
//good
int FChilliPepper
 
//bad
int ChilliPepper 
int FchilliPepper

Local Variables, Function Arguments

  • Camel Casing
//good
int redPepper;
void Foo(int barCode);
 
//bad
int Redpepper;
int RedPepper;
void Foo(int BarCode);

Global Variables

  • start with a G and then Pascal Casing
//good
int GChilliPepper;
 
//bad
int ChilliPepperGlobal;
int GchilliPepper;

Functions

  • Pascal Casing
//good
PlayMusic();
 
//bad
playMusic();

Events

  • start with On.. and then Pascal Casing
//good
OnExplode
 
//bad
Explode
Onexplode

Events Callbacks

  • are named like their corresponding Events
  • end with ..CB
//good
ExplodeCB()
 
//bad
ExplosionCB()
explodeCB()

Braces

  • braces are always in a new line
//good
if true then
{ 
 ...
};
 
//bad
if true then { ... };
if true then {
   ...
 };

Indenting

  • always use 4 spaces

Spacing

  • there is always a single space after a comma or a semicolon, never before
//good
MyFunction(a, b);
 
//bad
MyFunction( a , b );
  • single spaces surround operators (except unary operators like increment or logical not)
//good
a = b;                       
for (int i = 0; i < 10; ++i) 
 
//bad
a=b;                             
for (int i=0; i<10; ++i)

tobyk: @catweasel Re:KiNet yes, its pretty similar to artnet but with some different magic numbers. I can send you what I've used before.

Hadasi: Seemingly, many of the best approaches are right there in vvvv (click node, press F1)
