Hi everyone, I am using Corona SDK since they are offering a free version. I wanted to know anyone knows of a great free IDE for Lua language? I need something that has intellisense, I'm running Windows just to clarify! Thanks in advance!

Hi there.

 

My personal preference is sublime text (www.sublimetext.com) and this github project adds the majority of Corona/Lua calls to the autocomplete https://github.com/drowne/Corona-Sublime

 

 

Some full IDE's are www.mydevelopersgames.com/CIDER and www.coronaprojectmanager.com

 

They are both well featured and I have used both, although I prefer just a simpler text editor.

All good recommendations. I use Lua Glider (http://www.mydevelopersgames.com/CIDER/). Well worth the $40. Sublime Text 2 rocks as well.

Also, take a look at ZeroBrane Studio. It's an amazing editor that specializes in Lua coding !

It has superb debugging capabilities and it is very light. The author is always around in these for

I really like ZeroBrane Studio, too. I just wish I didn't have to dig into the .app directory to edit IDE preferences. Once that's fixed it will be a strong competitor to Glider.

I use LuaGlider and really like it.  However, it is a bit "heavy" and does have some autocomplete bugs.  But there is supposed to be a big update coming soon which will hopefully address these issues.

Hi Kevin,

Thank you for the feedback! I just committed the changes that add Preferences menu and should simplify access to configuration files. You can use "Edit | Preferences" to access System/User configuration files; if the file doesn't exist or is empty, it will be pre-populated with links to samples and online documentation.

These changes will be included in the coming release (as always available from http://studio.zerobrane.com), but you can check them now using the current version from the github repository.

Paul.

Thanks Paul! Slapped in my favorite settings, restarted, and I was up and running.

 

 

editor.fontname = "Menlo"
editor.fontsize = 18
editor.showfncall = false
editor.tabwidth = 4
editor.usetabs = true
editor.autotabs = true
editor.usewrap = false
 
outputshell.fontname = "Menlo"
outputshell.fontsize = 16
 
filetree.fontsize = 14
 
local G = ...
styles = G.loadfile('cfg/tomorrow.lua')('Zenburn')
styleoutshell = styles
 
Thanks again!
Kevin

+1 for Glider. If you like Netbeans, it's based on that and is basically the same thing.

Hello Jon,

 

Thanks for your support! We released the major update Glider version 1.9 today. We improved the autocomplete quite a bit. This update should fix a lot of the bugs and once you got the chance to check out the update, please let us know how it works and if you come across any bugs. Please feel free to email us if you have any questions at mydevelopergames@gmail.com

 

Regards,

M.Y. Developers
