Tutorial – Up and running with Raspberry Pi and Lua. I bought a Raspberry Pi and an Arduino several months ago and they basically sat on my desk, collecting dust, until I made a concentrated effort to get them up and running.
Since they’re not a plug-and-play type of device, there’s an entrance barrier to getting anything working on them and they need a little TLC. It’s worth it, however, to take the time to get to know them as you can do amazing things with the Internet of Things once you have the devices that support it up and running! I thought I’d write a few posts describing what I’m doing with them as I gradually learn this new technology. I originally bought the Pi because I wanted to learn python, but found that you can run many languages on the machine, including lua! So that led me to believe that I might be able to create a link between my Raspberry Pi configured as a web server and a Corona app written in lua, ideally to make the mobile app control some hardware activity. Now, configure some hardware. Taken from RasPi.tv. 1. Home Automation Using ESP8266. This eBook is my step-by-step guide designed to help you get started with this amazing $4 WiFi module called ESP8266.
If you’re new to the world of ESP8266, this eBook is perfect for you! If you already used the ESP8266 before, I’m sure you’ll also learn something new. This eBook contains the information you need to get up to speed quickly and start your own venture with the ESP8266 applied to Home Automation! What You’ll Learn In This eBook?

Frameworks - Developing with Lua. Writing Android GUI Using LUA (Introduction)
Introduction Lua is more like python.
Both are all dynamic languages, with little difference in syntax. Therefore these series of articles are similar to "write android gui using python" series. Using CLE and wrapandroid project, programmers can also write android gui applications with lua. CLE supports interaction between lua and java, gives a common interface for multiple programming languages. Preparing Environment Unlike python, for lua engine has been embedded in CLE, you do not need to install other support packages. a: CLE may install from network by application automatically, you need only include starcore_android_r5.jar in the project. B: Wrapandroid has two files: wrapandroid.jar and SRPWrapAndroidEngine.xml, which can be download from http:/code.google.com/p/wrapandroid-for-multilaguage/download/wrapandroid_devfiles_0_8_2.rar Begin Programming copy file : SRPWrapAndroidEngine.xml to assets directory.
Code.lua get current service maintained by cle SrvGroup = libstarcore. Cross-Platform Mobile App Development for iOS, Android - Corona Labs. The Programming Language Lua. Koneki - Lua Development Tools, an IDE for the Lua programming language. Code Assistance — Still writing code, but quicker.
Debugger — Finally a tool enabling to watch what is going on in your application. Code Template — Use common statements quicker. Syntax Coloring — Just for getting code nicer to write and to read. Notice, locals in clear and globals in bold. Error Marker — Where is my mistake? Outline — Tired of scrolling? Variable Highlight — Shows you all references to one variable. Code Formatter — You code, we indent. Code folding — File is too big, comments are too long? Goto definition — Code navigation finally brought to Lua.
Cross-platform — Koneki LDT runs on Linux, OSX and Windows.
