ZeroBrane Studio is a lightweight Lua IDE with code completion, syntax highlighting, remote debugger, code analyzer, live coding, and debugging support for several Lua engines (LuaJIT, Löve 2D, Moai, Gideros, Corona, Marmalade Quick, Cocos2d-x, GSL-shell, MobileLua, and others). It originated from the Estrela Editor.
- Written in Lua, so easily customizable.
- Small, portable, and cross-platform (Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux).
- Auto-completion for functions, keywords, and custom APIs.
- Interactive console to directly test code snippets with local and remote execution.
- Integrated debugger with local and remote debugging for Lua 5.1, Lua 5.2, LuaJIT, and other Lua engines.
- Live coding with Lua, Löve 2D, Gideros, Moai, Corona SDK, GSL-shell, and other engines.
- Several ways to extend the current functionality:
- specs (
spec/): specifications for file syntax, lexer, and keywords;
- apis (
api/): descriptions for code completion and tooltips;
- interpreters (
interpreters/): components for setting debugging and run-time project environment;
- packages (
packages/): plugins that provide additional functionality;
- config (
cfg/): settings for styles, color themes, and other preferences;
- translations (
cfg/i18n/): translations of the menus and messages to other languages;
- tools (
tools/): additional tools.
- specs (
- A short and simple overview for those who are new to this development environment.
- A list of frequently asked questions about the IDE.
- Tutorials and demos that cover debugging and live coding for different environments.
- Tips and tricks.
