Rules for naming buckets

What are the rules for the naming of buckets?

Is there a limit of 16 characters? Are spaces permitted? Are hyphens and underscores permitted?

I had an issue where a bucket had 18 characters in its name (no spaces, though) and assets didn't display correctly. Removing the last two characters from within buckets.php cured the problem.

Yes, there's a 16 character limit at the moment. I'm looking at revising that upwards.



Are spaces allowed? And upper and lower case?

If you use them, they'll be preserved, but you should name buckets as you'd name any other folder as part of a web project. It pays to be conservative. I'd stick to lowercase alphanumeric, underscores and dashes.

Thanks Drew.
