I was looking at the peripheral api page and nothing is stated about what the side names are. is it left, right, top, bottom, front, back or something else, and aliases for the sides if any.

Sides are fairly straight forward. There are not many other names for sides of things........ left, right, top, bottom, front, and back are always the same, there is no other word in the English language that can take their place. With front and back your could make the argument that they could be "forward" and "backward" but they are movement words, not side words.

So I don't think it is necessarily needed to be on the wiki, it is fairly common sense...

There is also `rs.getSides()` / `redstone.getSides()`...

I'm simply going to add my two-cents and say that I've tried to use "up" and "down" (well, at least "down") several times before remembering "top" and "bottom".

table.concat(rs.getSides(), ", ")

And yeah, it probably wouldn't hurt to call out those six explicitly someplace.

The correct order for them (disk drive preference, etc.) is:

top, bottom, front, back, left, right
