So, I get the feeling that there isn't a clear naming convenction when it comes to use "get" as a prefix. I am not refering to the python @property, nor getter/setter methods. I am talking about normal methods.
My criteria is:
when ever I prefix a method with "get" it is because I am implying there is a "set". By doing that, just by this naming it hints the reader if it is a getter or normal method.
For instance, I do ~.pointsPositions() not ~.getPointsPositions(). Reading that I am trying to hint the reader that there is no setPointsPositions().
Reading different apis, it seems there isn't a clear convention for this. Even within the same api you can find the prefix "get" almost randomly. Sometimes it might even be a getter that is not prefixed with get, but has its corresponding setter with the prefix "set".
