  1. App Configurator

    I think Corona is great for creating apps, it doesn't take long to learn the api and create something and time flys. But then... When you want to release and have to configure everything, create all icons etc. it becomes a major dreadful, heavy burden task.

    I would love a Corona Configurator that takes you though the creation of the config.la and build.settings and all needed icons, used plugins configurations, parameters, excluded files per OS etc.

    And then also help what is missing or changed, when Apple, Google or Corona SDK makes change or discontinue plugins.

      • Add Support for Amazon IAP V2.0

        Amazon will block app submissions using IAP V1 starting in May 2016. Here is the text from Amazon:

        In July 2014, we released In-App Purchasing (IAP) v2.0, which represents an evolution of the API with several major updates that require changes to v1.0 integrations. Now that a significant time period to migrate from v1.0 to v2.0 has passed, we are planning to deprecate v1.0 on April 30, 2016. At this time all active apps will continue to function as expected, but we will begin to fail new submissions and updates still integrated with IAP v1.0.

                • Custom display objects

                  A number of possibilities would open up if we could invoke our own logic when an object's turn comes around for rendering.

                  This might involve deriving from some "custom object prototype" class, where you supply a few methods, say:

                  Object:Create() -- instantiate one of the objects, possibly redundant
                  Object:Destroy() -- clean up any resources
                  Object:Draw() -- perform custom rendering
                  Object:Resume() -- recover from device loss or app suspend...
                  Object:Suspend() -- ...handle the loss / suspend itself

                  You then create your object and stuff it in a group as usual.

                  I'm probably overlooking a detail or two, but the above ought…

                  • Official support for the best Lua IDE: Zerobrane Studio

                    Although general purpose editors such as Sublime Text or Atom are great, they're not built specifically for Lua code editing. Of all the editors and IDEs I've used, ZeroBrane Studio (http://studio.zerobrane.com) is the best out there.

                    The author provides great support and frequent updates, and there are many features that are indispensable for Lua developers (one of my favorites is code analyze).

                    It already has some support for Corona, but an official support with updates of the latest APIs from Corona Labs would be awesome.

                      • Support for Android 5+ startLockTask() / stopLockTask()

                        Since Android 5.0, a basic kiosk mode is supported by Android, called "Screen Pinning". This can be done by an Activity to call startLockTask() which will prevent of Home/Task-Switcher keys, until the activity calls stopLockTask() or the user exits via special key-combination and PIN code.

                        For simple kiosk-mode applications it would be very helpful if Corona SDK could support the appropriate calls on Android.

                        • Mouse scroll wheel with scrollview widget

                          For OSX and Win32 builds, I'd love to see the widgets (and in particular widget.newScrollView) support mouse wheel events. At the moment they don't and it's fairly unintuitive when using on OSX with a Magic Mouse for example as users are used to being able to do this. Thanks!

                                  • [Plugin] MapBox plugin

                                    Implement the mapBox (https://www.mapbox.com/) SDK as a Corona plugin.

                                    This plugin would give us the ability to support real mapping features online and offline with strong performance with offline road mapping.

                                    • Ability to change color of gray loading screen in webView or make transparent

                                      The gray color is quite unsightly when waiting for the webView to load. We can already make the background transparent once loaded, it'd be nice to be able to make that gray loading background transparent as well.
                                      At least being able to change that color to fit our app would help it to look more like it is part of the app.

                                      • [Plugin] IntelliJ Support

                                        Add support for IntelliJ to provide an IDE option for those who prefer an IDE over a text editor (Sublime) for development.

                                        Many (most?) modern languages and SDKs offer an IntelliJ plugin, making it a familiar platform in the development community. This is especially true for those of us coming from other Android development since Android's standard IDE (Android Studio) is built upon IntelliJ. Offering support would make the transition to Corona more painless.

                                        Its speed and feature set make it a fantastic IDE for fast development, such that the slowdown from using an IDE over a text editor would…

                                        • feed for daily builds

                                          It would be nice if we had an rss feed or email subscription for daily builds (among other things).
