I’m a seasoned adobe air developer (I have a few apps in a few app stores) and have been using Codea to teach my son programming. It has been really amazing!
I have also started using it to prototype ideas, a sort of coding sketchbook. I have a few more elaborate projects I built in it and have really fallen in love with the portability and amazing quickness at whipping ideas together in Codea.
So the question is, how to get this out of Codea and onto iPhones, iPads, Android and other gadgets?
I realize there is an export to Xcode, but was wondering if there was planned support for something more in keeping with the ease of the Lua language and Codea in general.
I saw that there was a a prototype for a Moai runtime, this is pretty interesting. I can imagine having something setup so that Codea projects can be exported and dropped right into Moai with no tweaking needed - that would be so awesome! From a Codea standpoint, Moai has all the extended functionality, like IAP, GameCenter, etc so Codea would never have to worry about that. And users could go back and forth seamlessly so they can do test builds on other platforms without ever having to give up using Codea in their project.
One thing I am missing so far is the ability to test at different screen sizes - like at least having an iPhone size setting so I can see if my code will handle that correctly.
Ok, just some thoughts, thanks for the great tool!
