Welcome to this week’s From the Forum. In this post, we highlight a few Corona Community Forums posts that cover important topics.

HTML5 server awesomeness

Corona mega-developer @develephant has gone full overdrive creating some great tools to go along with HTML5 builds. In his latest creation, he’s created a plugin to let HTML5 builds work with his Coronium Core server product. In addition he’s created some command line tools to speed up your HTML5 development. Check out the goodness here!

Converting numbers in Lua

Most people work in Lua with base 10 or decimal numbers, i.e. everything you do is with digits between 0 and 9. But there are other times where you might want to display numbers in different formats, such as hexadecimal or base 16 numbers where digits range from 0 to F. In this thread, @roaminggamer addressed an easy way to convert Lua numbers to other representations other than normal numbers.

Things that go “Bleep”

In this post, a Corona user was getting odd sounds every time Corona generated a run-time error. After a little investigating, the sounds were being generated by the operating system. On Windows, it’s standard for apps with errors to play a system sound. On macOS a notification is generated. Both of these sounds are controlled by the operating system. The solution? This forum post has you covered!
