Hey folks, I’m about halftime on Jasper this week finally and about 80% for the rest of the calendar year. My next trick is to bring over a subset of what is today FubuCore into a DNX/CoreCLR project.
@/all I’m wanting a smaller lib of just the extension methods and probably FileSystem & the Cache classes as a foundation lib. I’ve been using the name “Spackle” forever as the code name for that, but of course someone beat me to that name years ago for yet another extension method project (that doesn’t overlap with FubuCore whatsoever). Would y’all be okay if I call that lib Spackle.Net? The existing Spackle project hasn’t had a new release since 2012 if that matters.

I like it personally, but I noticed while looking up the word (Brit, never heard of it before) "Spackle" is also trademarked apparently, not sure if that makes any odds.

Okay, so the second part of this was “got any better suggestions?”;-)
The next choice is Jasper.Core or Jasper.BCL or you probably get why I’m asking for naming help here;)

I was looking for other similar terms (I was trying to find a tool name used to fix a fishing Net due to the "net" part...).
Best I could come up with was Jasper.Filler or Jasper.Polyfiller or Jasper.Poly (now there's an overloaded term!)

“Polyfill” ?

PollyFiller is the uk equivalent of spackle
Could also go down the gem route - Jasper is a gemstone, so Jasper.Adornments or something perhaps

Call it something like “gems” and folks will start complaining about “Bundler”;)
Actually, how about Baseline? There’s a touch of meaning there because there’s a “Baseline Rd” that’s right by the actual town that this whole thing is named after.
Not on nuget, and the C# repo’s w/ that name look abandoned. I’m going w/ that.

Alright then, the first Jasper nuget just got published: https://www.nuget.org/packages/Baseline/0.5.0.3
Baseline is a very small subset of what was FubuCore
