Hi list !

For a long time, I have been able to stick with the conventions inherited from ruby: PascalCase for classes, under_score for all the rest.

Now that I am working with Qt, I have a problem: all Qt methods are camel case. After some time, my Lua code starts to look really weird:

instance:setHue(def.hue or 0.2)

setHue is a method used in a QWidget, set_inlets is used in a sub-class from QWidget.

At this point, I have 3 options:

1. rename Qt methods to use under_score (I subclass and rewrite methods anyway).
2. use camel case in the context of Qt and Qt sub-classes (but this means we will see setInlet for NodeView and set_inlet for Node which could be confusing).
3. use camel case everywhere (more work but doable on the long run).

What is your advice ? Is there any "native" style for Lua ?
