        • [PLUGIN] Native widgets for iOS / Android

          Implement functionality for true native widgets for iOS and Android.

          There are times (especially business apps) where the existing widget library just doesn't cut it. Yes, Widgets 2.0 does a fair approximation, but that's just it. It's an approximation.... of iOS widgets. Even when run on Android they behave like iOS widgets (even though the skin can look like Android).

          I'm not saying that Widgets 2.0 should be replaced. It has its uses when you don't need true native widgets (I'd like to call these OpenGL widgets instead).

          I propose that a new native widget library be developed that uses…

            • [Plugin] Nextpeer

              Would love to be able Nextpeer "multiplayer" third party tool. It will allows us to piggy back on their success. They have millions of players every month. This means that we will have instant players to play our games if I understand the system. They seems to stream game screenshots so all the players could see our Corona made games. It is not truly multiplayer BUT it will be a bonanza for our games visibility! It also compatible between Android and Apple.

              • [Plugin] IntelliJ Support

                Add support for IntelliJ to provide an IDE option for those who prefer an IDE over a text editor (Sublime) for development.

                Many (most?) modern languages and SDKs offer an IntelliJ plugin, making it a familiar platform in the development community. This is especially true for those of us coming from other Android development since Android's standard IDE (Android Studio) is built upon IntelliJ. Offering support would make the transition to Corona more painless.

                Its speed and feature set make it a fantastic IDE for fast development, such that the slowdown from using an IDE over a text editor would…

                        media.playVideo only allows for the remote download and play of video. It would be good to be able to play a video stream, from an IP camera, or a video streaming service.

                        • 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.

                              This plugin would give us the ability to support real mapping features online and offline with strong performance with offline road mapping.

                              • [Plugin] Soundcloud Player Integration

                                It would be great to have the player from soundcloud integrated into an app. Imagine to be able to stream from your existing account and be able to customize it, which means to have the option to only get the stream itself without the player UI( still displaying the SC logo for copyright reasons) and be able to control it from outside(play, pause, skip, previous, etc... )

                                The music stream should definitely be able to play in UIBackgroundMode ( Suspended mode ) too.

                                Some people would maybe also like to get the chance to upload music into their account straight…

                                  As a game engine, some common game types / layouts should be supported, in form of Startup Template. Currently we can only rely on 3rd party tile engine. Implementing Tile Map game is still a pain.

                                    • [PLUGIN] Have a plugin for Social Share SDK

                                      There is something called share SDK(http://sharesdk.mob.com/en) which can enable users to share to 40+ social networking sites.
                                      Unity also has a plugin for this(http://goo.gl/dCfwnQ). Can we do something similar in Corona?

                                      • [Plugin] Interactive Graphics - Dashboards

                                        Hello,

                                        Create a plugin for building interactive graphics - Dashboards, where it would be possible to build graphics abc curve, quantitative indicators and many others.

                                        The graphics would be in the form of pie, line, area, column, bar, XY.

                                        Ex:https://conceptdraw.com/a2004c3/p1/preview/640/pict--sales-dashboard-charts-and-graphic-indicators-design-elements---sales-kpis-and-metrics.png--diagram-flowchart-example.png

                                          We feel that this is a candidate for a 3rd party plugin. Most business graphics are generated using 3rd party graphics libraries. We are going to leave it open to collect votes.

                                        • [PLUGIN] Set as ringtone/wallpaper on Android

                                          Native call to set items as ringtone (audio) or wallpaper (image) on Android.
