  1. Update firebase sdk and gps to 11 on android

    In order to take advantage of the new firebase features like phone login and performance logging on android, firebase needs to be updated to 11.

    Google play services would also need to be updated 11 as well.

    iphone =

    runScripts = {
    [["${PROJECT_DIR}/fabricRun" secretCode]],
    },

    },

  3. Corona simulator should return to its location after every error or notification

    After an error the simulator returns to its location on the screen. If two errors or another notification are received, it must be returned manually. Every time. Change this so the simulator window sticks to it's set location.

  4. 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

  6. getContentResolver().openInputStream(uri) to get content stream to file in android

    Implement the ability to access to the

    getContentResolver().openInputStream(uri) function at Android.

    This is to create a file with an stream. Many apps uses the contentProvider and send an URI similar to:

    content://com.google.android.apps.docs.storage.legacy/enc=Gq8T6z85JlXgQW8eI1KQNgZccktDINxa2ejLY80P_cuXdpvt

    Need some way to resolver this, and allow share files in this way in android. Not really share, but, read, and receive.

    For example: send a file by email, and open with our app.

    If the email app uses the content:// format for the stream, need a way to get the file.

    Any chance?

  8. transition library

    expanded library to allow for curved line transitions, perhaps by a 'function' parameter like {time = 1000, delay =150, function = x^2,[0,4]} where x^2 is the function and is transitioned from x = 0 to x = 4
    of course, pre-defined functions would be great!

    also would like to add multiple transitions to an object without having to stack them and calculate the delays for each movement.

  9. Functions to help control memory leaks

    Is it possible to write functions that will output what is still in memory (images, widgets, timers, sounds, local and global variables, etc) at any point?
    I would like to see output to the console so I can be more confident that I cleared what is necessary.

  10. Additional Local Notification Options

    On Android, for local notifications, it would good to be able to select the title of the notification (currently the name of the app), the icon (currently limited to 1 for all notifications), a large icon/show the large icon. This could also include current requests such as grouping notifications, setting the badge number and allowing notifications to vibrate etc

    Details are found at https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/ui/notifiers/notifications.html#Required and https://developer.android.com/reference/android/support/v4/app/NotificationCompat.Builder.html

  11. better dynamic access to box2d fixtures (wrt multi-element bodies)

    in short: while i appreciate the existing multi-element support (such as it is) during the one-time process of creating a body, true per-fixture dynamic support in general is sadly lacking across the board - functionality supported by box2d, but lacking an equivalent in CSDK.

    longer:

    a number of properties are exposed at the body-level only, and would be far more useful if exposed at the fixture level where they belong.

    a simple example is .isSensor - box2d supports changing the sensor status of an individual fixture at runtime, while CSDK only allows that change to the entire body as a…

  12. Support for GIFs

    I'd like to be able to display GIFs (not using a web view because i need to be able to overlay call-to-action text on top). Basically would like to display a bunch of gifs, and give the user the ability to do things like forward, copy, etc... It seems to be supported natively by iOS now where it wasn't before

  15. Google Play: Error 103 during installation

    Basically, the jarsigner in Java 7 and above uses a default hash method that older devices do not support.

    Can Corona include all the parameters needed to use later versions of Java during build process?

  17. Offset circular bodies

    An offset value for circular bodies in much the same way that offset/angled rectangular bodies can be defined. Adding the ability to offset a circular body would allow many shapes with much greater ease than currently.

  18. 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...

  20. 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.
