A simple question :

"How can we build a Linux Native Plugin ?"


"corona/subrepos/enterprise/contents/Project Template/App" has no templates for Linux.


And I did not found any documentation on the subject.

The documentation reads:

Plugins build upon Lua's module system, so they can come in three different flavors:
Pure Lua code
Native code
Hybrid of Lua and native code

Where native points to native C or Java. There's nothing specific about Linux there. Linux builds are also in beta atm.

@lapoux, Linux support is pretty-early beta or even Alpha. There are three parts to this.


1. Using macOS or Windows to build a Linux version of a Corona app: This is a little further along.  It should be able to link to existing C based plugins (but I'm not 100% sure about that) or Lua plugins.


2. Running the Simulator on Linux: Very early/pre-alpha. I don't know if it could even link in plugins or not.


3. Building natively on Linux: I don't think we even got started on that we we had to put that on the back burner. Native usually comes last on a new platform.
