Hello all,

so here is my tutorial explaining how to use different protocols in LuaSocket. Examples on how to create clients and servers and even discovering devices.


Hope everything is explained, if there are any questions or mistakes feel free to ask or correct :)

And if you liked it, help me dzone it:

  • seems my 'LuaSockets' is not 'installed'. I keep getting the following after copying the *.lua files from the plug-in / src directory into my project/includes directory:

    includes/db.lua:14: module './includes/socket.lua' not found:
    no field package.preload['./includes/socket.lua']
