Any Lua programming resources for the chromeboook?

aryajur
Hi, 
 My son's school currently only has chromeboooks . Are there any good tools that can be used to do Lua programming in that?
     After searching a bit I found a love 2d port http://binji.github.io/love-nacl/. But this does not have an environment to write code. 
   Is there any other useful stuff they can use?

Thanks, 
Milind

I don't have a chromebook and can't say for it, but I assume those online coding environment
should be suitable, such as ideone[1]. it is not Lua specific, but has good Lua support.

also, there's cloud9[2]. though it is intended for different usage scenarios.

there are many other similar websites, some are really feature rich. you can check them out yourself.

Hi Milind,

I am a chromebook user and tried to use it for coding.  I ended up installing crouton that enables running Linux alongside ChromeOS and later I removed ChromeOS completely and installed GalliumOS, a Linux distribution for chromebooks. As it was already mentioned, your best bet is online IDE platform, cloud9 is the best imho. 

Best,
Pavel

Hi,

Not exactly what you asked for, but related: https://codecombat.com/ is a browser RPG game 
that lets you control your character by programming. It's a teaching tool with many different 
programming languages available. Lua is one of them.

Cheers

Hi,

My initial recommendation for the Chrome Book would be Eclipse with the Lua plug-in (I currently use this on my Mac), but a little Googling reveals the JDK cannot be installed on it [1].

For home computers (Windows, Mac, Linux), I'd recommend Eclipse and Lua.  If your son has a larger project, it would be nicer to use the home computer than compared to a browser based Lua environment.
