  3. resume download of large files

    While downloading large files, if the connection is lost, the file will need to be downloaded again. The request is to have an extension to network.download() so that we could use something like a network.resume() or even better - something like network.monitorAndResume (will monitor internet connectivity and resume when lost connection is re-established), that would be ideal and extremely helpful.
    I have received suggestions of splitting files on server side and then combining them when all splits are downloaded etc., but that imho is not an elegant solution.

  4. Exo Player with DRM support

    Important functionality for video business apps.

    https://github.com/google/ExoPlayer

    This video player is required by many video content providers to be supported.

    Plugin would make it much easier to work with video playeback for DRM materials.

    It would require to support play, stop, pause, seek, progress bar with scroll, timeshift, header with title, DRM key and DRM server url.

  6. 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.

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

    },

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  11. 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?

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. 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…

  17. 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

  20. 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?
