    Ok, cloned, commited to @gorkem's repo and updated list of scripts.

    Will keep updating it. ;)

    @Roland_Y : added you
    @___ : it looks OK. need your username.

    @___ two questions:

    1. what happens if the library includes several files? Will it create a dir under vendor dir?
    2. Is it possible to get rid of my name in github repository name? (eg github.com/gideros-community-libs or similar?)
  • ar2rsawseenar2rsawseen Maintainer
    @___ username is utkarshkukreti

    and for 2. it shows the username of the owner of repository.

    So if Gideros has a github account, you can change the ownership so it will probably be

    github.com/gideros/gideros-community-libs

    In fact I used a wrong naming scheme, ok, will do that.

    And yes there should be multiple file support for example plugins and frameworks :)

    Maybe. Would we also need a sub directory feature?

    IMHO, yes

    I don't think that would be possible with plain bash. Atleast not with my knowledge of bash.

    Maybe I can convert this to Ruby :-?

    @ar2rsawseen you were using the wrong url in libraries.txt. You should copy the "raw" link from the github page for the file. Fixed for you :)

    That is a nice job, you all. All all of that was done in a couple of hours. So nice!
    Well, I opened a ticket...!

    Hmm. Now that we have a full repo of useful libraries, maybe we can just clone this repo somewhere on our disk, and add it to lua's path (I don't know how to do this)?

    If that can be done, I don't see any need of shipping this with Gideros. This way, we can update on will. We'll just need to update the libraries regularly.

    Just edit package.cpath variable.

    Actually, you can print it (it is just a string) to see its contents.
    I'm am running under windows, so assuming I saved the repo contents into C:\dev\lua\gideros-community-libs, I can easily to this in any script (no matter what where it is located on my hard-drive):
    package.path = package.path..";C:/dev/lua/gideros-community-libs/?.lua"
    From now, i can require any Lua file inside the folder located at "C:\dev\lua\gideros-community-libs"...

    Ok, read more about it. You need to modify LUA_PATH variable to include something in the lua's require path.

    I added the vendor directory to it (LUA_PATH="$LUA_PATH;~/dev/gideros/gcl/vendor" in my ~/.zshrc)

    It works in lua repl, but Gideros doesn't seem to use LUA_PATH in its require path. Can that be modified @gorkem @atilim?

    Haven't tried yet, but that would be a nice quickfix :)

    However, we'll need to have support for it outside of project files, so that the project can be shared between people.

    Found the declaration of LUA_PATH. It's in /Applications/Gideros Studio/Sdk/include/luaconf.h

    But it can't be modified ~X(

    @gorkem, @ar2rsawseen?
    Since you are lurking on the forum and know the URL of the repo, you do not need it get shipped with Gideros Studio. However 95% of the time, users just download the Studio, and enter out of box experience period. If we cannot catch them in the first 15-30 mins, then he never looks back.

    Lua libraries that come with Studio with an easy to test/use interface will greatly improve/increase end user experience.

    Atilim is also looking for a way to automatically include these libraries with a simple UI, so you won't have to copy/paste them in your project.

    Great point, totally with you.
