Is there any naming convention or best practices to name macOS application installer (DMG file)? Should it contain words like "Install" or "Installer" or it's better to provide application name only? If application installer has several words in its name should they be separated by spaces or file name should be written in camel case?
Let's assume that application name is "Some Mac Application". What is the best way to name DMG file?
- Some Mac Application.dmg
- Some Mac Application Installer.dmg
- Install Some Mac Application.dmg
My assumption is that right approach is to call it "Some Mac Application.dmg". Here are some reasons:
- DMG file is not an installer. It's just a volume which contain app file (bundle) which need to be dropped to Applications folder. So it's better to omit words Install and Installer;
- Camel case is less readable than space separation.
At the same time according to competitive analyse it looks like SomeMacApplication.dmg is more common approach:
