  1. Support modification of package path

    It would be super helpful if Corona SDK could support modifications to the package path (http://lua-users.org/wiki/PackagePath).

    This would - among other things - support the easy setup of Lua-only Luarocks installed in a local tree:
    http://leafo.net/guides/customizing-the-luarocks-tree.html

    This would make code sharing and working with external libraries/dependencies much easier, but for it to work we need to be able to modify the package path:

    package.path = 'lua_modules/share/lua/5.1/?.lua;lua_modules/share/lua/' .. version .. '/?/init.lua;' .. package.path

    • Disable Native WebView Zoom buttons

      There's no way to disable Zoom Buttons of the WebView in Corona and this is quite frustrating because they continously appear on screen using Android.

      However, as posted on Stack Overflow, there's a way to do it in Java overriding some methods. Explanation can found here: https://stackoverflow.com/a/11901948

      Best solution would be to have a boolean property like "zoomButtonsEnabled" to control this.

      I don't know if on iOS there's the same problem.

      Thanks in advance!

      • Radial Gravity with Particle Systems

        (I'm not sure what category this should be under, so feel free to mark it under whatever is related to LiquidFun/Physics.)

        LiquidFun's API allows for radial gravity via the ReportParticle callback of the QueryAABB and QueryShapeAABB methods. Note LiquidFun's methods ParticleApplyForce and ParticleApplyLinearImpulse.

        Core features being requested:
        - Expose LiquidFun's ParticleApplyForce and ParticleApplyLinearImpulse methods on ParticleSystem objects.
        - Add an index property to the "hits" table returned from ParticleSystem:queryRegion()
        - Expose LiquidFun's QueryShapeAABB method so we can query circular regions. This allows for more natural/accurate radial gravity behavior.

        Alternatively, feel free to encapsulate these ideas into your own preferred methods.…

        • Easier way to POST simple text field forms

Easier way to POST simple string that look like form fields on the server side (simpler forms and processing like with html forms).

          • Composer stops previous scene's runtime events and event listeners

            It would be great if the composer could handle stopping all runtime events and event listeners of the previous scene when goToScene is called (or when a new scene is loaded).

            • Basic 3D

              Basic 3d transformations For example if you had a game board on one side of a cube and user could then swipe the cube to rotate to another side which has more paths for the player character to follow. Doesn't have to be true 3D rendering if that's out of scope, just some kind of way to do transformations like described here.

                  Easier way to do a multipart form POST. Currently it doesn't seem that multipart forms are built in. (request.UPLOAD allows a POST but doesn't seem to allow multipart forms where enctype="multipart/form-data)

                    • 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

                            Ability to create plugins which allow placing native objects under corona view. This can be useful for video player where we could build UI with corona instead of native elements.

                                • A manual "simulateTouch( event )"

                                  I would like the ability to manually fire a touch event that gets treated like a regular touch event.

                                  Essentially how the mouse is treated on desktop builds where display objects get told about it as if they were actually touched.

                                  I'm hoping that as this ability must already be built into Corona it might be relatively easy to allow us to hook into it?

                                  Please see this thread for more info - https://forums.coronalabs.com/topic/71198-manually-fire-a-touch-event

                                    • PDF Reader For Android

                                      need a plugin to read pdf files on android, like quicklook on ios.

                                      I use systemopenurl to display pdf, I think it is inefficient because it requires another pdf reader application

                                      • App orientation based on device type

                                        Ability to set app orientation based on device type. For example: phone will be portrait, tablet will be landscape.

                                        It would be the best to use full orientation settings for each device type.

                                        This feature is essential for mobile app development where business apps most often need to be in different orientations for phone and tablet.
