Decoda, a professional Lua IDE/debugger, is now open source

Decoda was created by the developers of Natural Selection 2 (which, incidentally, has all of its gameplay code written in Lua and publicly viewable and moddable.) Check it out! http://unknownworlds.com/blog/lua-ide-d ... en-source/

I would have to assume that this means it is now free? I've always wanted to try it out, I suppose it's worth it now.

Thanks for the info. Gotta try it ASAP. Do you know if it's cross platform? wxWidget and most library seem to be so, but I did not try to build it on Linux yet.

It's Windows-only right now, but I'd imagine it's only a matter of time before people attempt ports to OS X and Linux.

So, how can this be used with Love2D? If I understand correctly, it needs to see lua.dll to attach its debugging hooks. However, love.exe doesn't have an external lua.dll...
