Corona - Feature Requests/Feedback

Welcome to the Corona SDK feature request/feedback tool.

Tell us what features you would like to see in Corona by entering new ones and/or voting on existing entries.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • You only have 15 votes. Use them wisely! You only regain votes if we delete or close an item.
  • Write short descriptions/comments to give us context on what you need and mean.
  • This tool is not for asking questions or long discussions. Use our forum instead.

What features should we add to Corona?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Add desktop base directories

    It would be really helpful if we had access to other directories for quick access to assets located outside our container on desktop apps.

    For example, i am developing an editor, in which users can choose their own images to texture their levels. However, currently there is no easy way to load any image into Corona outside of our project.

    The proposed solution:
    Add a system.RootDirectory or system.AbsoluteDirectory constant to be able to load images/assets from any place, using the absolute path.

    As an additional feature, folders like the user folder, global temporary folder and many others could be added…

    • OS X Desktop Notifications

      It would be really helpful if we could send push notifications to an OSX Desktop app in the same way we can for iOS and Android.

      In particular it'd be really good to be able to put an 'unread messages' red notification badge on the app icon in the Mac taskbar.

      Happy to fund a plugin developer on this if that is possible, though I understand it may need changes in the Corona core before this can happen.

      • Ability to delete projects

        Add the ability to delete unwanted or defunct projects from the project list to reduce clutter.

        • Implement io.popen to get values back from shell

          os.execute lets us run shell commands which is really useful for desktop applications. However you can not read the output of these applications from the command line. io.popen would fix that and make life even easier
