The file library as it stands is functional but Spartan. The library
doesn't let you know when a file was created, and it doesn't let you
sort the files in any way. Let's make the library a little fancier.

"Spartan" in this context is an adjective, not a verb, and thus shouldn't be capitalised.

Eh? What's adjectival use got to do with it? (And how does "Spartan" work as a verb?) I'll leave it to the
editors to decide whether to capitalize Spartan in this case, though. It varies depending on whose style
guide you're fond of.
