Does anyone know a German tutorial Page for lua? I'd Love to programm something in lua!!! But the only Thing i Managed is a Little man ( i made him with the sprite() function ;) ) appears where i Touch... And i drew some houses... But its all :( i Need this Page! (i know some pages, but they dont explain Things like: "self.anythingIDontKnow" or "function init() " or how to create cind of a Button)

    There is no built-in way to create a button - yet. You'd need to draw it yourself with a rect() or ellipse(), then look for touch events where you drew the button.

    As for tutorial sites - maybe http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=auto&tl=de&u=http://www.lua.org/pil/ (I don't know how well google's translator will work on technical documents). Good luck!

  • Also there is some information here that you can translate with google since it's not in the app

    https://bitbucket.org/TwoLivesLeft/codea/wiki/Home

    Some of the in app documentation is here

    Though I think it is for the prior version. It may be missing some commands.

  • Thank you, this Page is very useful. But why Cant i Open some files? There is always an error... "this Content is private". Ok, but how can i See this content? I Need it!!

  • I believe only the prior versions of the web pages are private. I cannot see those either.
