Subject: [ANN] Lua For IntelliJ IDEA, 0.9.90 (A Lua IDE)
Newsgroups: gmane.comp.lang.lua.general
Date: Sunday 10th April 2011 23:35:07 UTC (over 7 years ago)
Thanks to all the great feedback I have been getting, I decided since
my last post to keep my Lua plugin in development a bit longer.

Since it has been a couple months since my last announcement, I
thought I would announce version 0.9.90 of my Lua plugin for IntelliJ
IDEA (similar IDE to Eclipse)

I'd really love some more feedback, so if you have a chance please
give the latest version a try and let me know what you like/don't like
and/or how I can make the IDE better; Also, ways to make the
documentation and instructional materials better.

I now have a collection of screencasts showing various features of the
editor. [1]

I am still working on the debugger feature. It is still planned,
though I have found most of my users are embedded Lua users and don't
have much use for an interactive debugger outside their embedded
environment.

Information:

If you would like to try it out, there is a free version of IntelliJ 10 [2]

Setup:

There are loads of pictures and a setup screencast on the wiki page [3]

The plugin is available within the IDE itself. (Settings|Plugins).
Once you have installed IntelliJ and the Lua plugin, you can follow
the screencast for a walk-through of setting up a Lua project.

Features:

LuaDoc Creation, Highlighting and Folding
Live Templates ("Zen Lua")
Custom API Support including custom function signatures and documentation
Lua Standard Library Information via Quickhelp (ctrl-Q)
Goto Symbol
Safe Delete (Experimental)
Rename Identifier (Experimental)
