  1. Support iOS Metal

    This has already been requested and declined, however, with the latest release of iOS 12 and Mac Mojave, Apple will no longer be supporting OpenGL down the road and this is a must if we want to continue to make Corona apps for iOS or Mac OS.

    It's the future for iOS graphic handling, please make this a priority sooner than later. I will no longer be looking at Corona for any new projects unless I know this will be supported eventually.

  4. 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

  5. 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!

  6. 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.…

  7. Easier way to POST simple text field forms

    Easier way to POST simple strings that then look like simple form Post fields on the server side (simpler forms and processing like with html forms). Easier way to POST simple string that look like form fields on the server side (simpler forms and processing like with html forms). Would help tremendously with creating accounts and also all business apps

  8. 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).

  9. 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.

  11. multipart form POSTS for uploads

    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)

  13. 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

    AdColony mention:
    "Several bug fixes, memory usage optimizations, and stability improvements"
    in 3.3.0 .. this could help with some crashes we face.

  15. Ability to place native object below Corona view [Corona native]

    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.

  18. 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

    Purpose a plugin who send automatically all errors from all device to a server. The server classify the data and show it to the developer.
    - All developers need this plugin

    In the app:
    local function networkListener( event )

    if ( event.phase == "began" ) then
    elseif ( event.phase ==…

  20. 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
