  1. MQTT and IOT integration

    Would be nice to have updated plugins and docs. on mqtt handelig, i.e. towards iot.eclipse.org and maybe other servers. I can make some tutorials on configuring NodeMCU and Wemos R1. The goal would be to make Corona apps that can handle SmartHouse integration

    • Update AdColony Plugin to 3.3.0

      AdColony mention:
      "Several bug fixes, memory usage optimizations, and stability improvements"
      in 3.3.0 .. this could help with some crashes we face.
      No need for new api or any modification. just rebuild plugin with newer sdk

          • Live wallpapers for Android

            It has been mentioned some time before but we're still unable to make live wallpapers with Corona SDK.

            Scott's Harrison "wallpaper" plugin only supports images which can be set as static wallpapers.

            Requested features:
            - set mp4 or gif as live wallpaper
            - set live wallpapers based on coded mechanics (moving images or simple math figures - circles, rectangles, changing their size)
            - launching coded mechanics when user touches the screen with live wallpaper set (creating sparks or something like that in the place user touches the screen)
            - app should work as widget (?) - somehow it should be…

              • Exo Player with DRM support

                Important functionality for video business apps.

                https://github.com/google/ExoPlayer

                This video player is required by many video content providers to be supported.

                Plugin would make it much easier to work with video playeback for DRM materials.

                It would require to support play, stop, pause, seek, progress bar with scroll, timeshift, header with title, DRM key and DRM server url.

                    • luasql

                      hi, i just wrote an article on the forum about this today. adding luasql as an integral part of the build or as an option would be Great for getting lua into more hands and making it more useful. apps are the future and adding data sources really improves developers options to write/solve more complex solutions and will get lua into more developers hands...

                        • "Better" support for "native" Desktop Plugin development via Enterprise

                          As of right now you can build native Desktop Plugins but there many things missing that would make it easier. Note this is not referring to shared plugins like the zip plugin or open ssl plugin. Nor is it pure lua plugins.
                          1.Samples, if you look inside the Corona Enterprise right now there are a ton of sample for iOS and Android and there are a ton of open sourced plugins for mobile i.e https://github.com/coronalabs/plugins-source but there is practically no sample for desktop. Maybe open source the new Steam Plugin.
                          2.Documentation, sure there are lots of forums posts from the…

                                  • Google Analytics "Demographics and Interest Reports" Problem

                                    In Google Analytics dashboard, there is a message about "Demographics and Interest Reports":

                                    "Your Demographics and Interest Reports have been enabled, but your Analytics tracking code does not include the necessary support to show them. Learn more about the simple, one-line, one-time change to your tracking code to add this support."

                                    The suggestion is to add some native coding.

                                    • Torch integration

                                      Torch (www.torch.ch) is a Lua framework, with very powerful features for neural networks and AI. There is an iOS port.

                                      It would be nice to be able to load and execute trained models.
