The Corona Plugin for Xcode adds a set of new features to Xcode, turning it into an easy-to-use, smooth, and efficient editor for Corona projects.

This plugin is also a great addition if you are working with Corona Native or CoronaCards. In this case, you will achieve an excellent workflow by being able to do both Corona/Lua code and native code side-by-side in Xcode.

  • Corona Simulator output shows in the Xcode console (optional).
  • Syntax highlighting for Corona/Lua.
  • Auto-completion library calls, keywords, constants, etc.
  • Snippets declarations, loops, conditions, etc.
  • Corona project and file templates built into Xcode.
  • Corona API documentation look-up from selected text.
  • Corona daily build picker dialog to easily switch between daily builds.
  • Custom behaviors and keybinding set for Corona.
  • Corona Debugger NEW! in version 1.5
  • One-click installer: No messing with the command line to install this plugin.
