WowLua  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: v40300-1.0.2
by: Cladhaire [More]
WowLua is an in-game Lua scripting environment that includes an interactive Lua interpreter as well as a multi-page script editor. Other features include:
  • Syntax coloring, courtesy of krka's spectacular For All Indents and Purposes library
  • Sleek buttons, courtesy of Mikk
  • When WowLua is running code, it defines a global function print() which directs output to the WowLua window, for convenience. This global is removed when not running from WowLua
  • Can run WowLua pages from the commandline using /wowluarun or /luarun. Each slash command takes the name of a page, and prints any issues or activity to the chat frame. These can thus be used from macros.
  • Can open WowLua using /wowlua or /lua. Both of these slash commands will take a lua expression and run it, if provided:

/lua print(14) will open WowLua and print the number 14 to the output window.

Please feel free to post any comments or questions here, you'll find I'm relatively responsible. This addon has been written primarily as a companion tool for World of Warcraft Programming: A Guide and Reference for Creating WoW Addons.

It actually _used_ to, but Blizzard changed one of their templates that stopped it from working. I haven't had a chance to figure it out yet =/.

If I'm at the end of the visible space in the editor window and continue typing on new lines, it would be helpful if the editor scrolled down to those new lines. (I often find myself typing off the bottom of the screen.)

Basically, any time the editor pane has focus and a key is pressed, it would be good to scroll to the caret.

Mousewheel scrolling

I have a request. Can you make the editor window scroll just a few lines at a time on mousewheel scrolling or tell me how I can make it do that? If I have a lot of code in the window and I make the window big, when I mousewheel it moves about 20 lines at a time. I can't seem to figure out how this is handled. Thanks.

No, it's a text editor and Lua interpreter for writing code.

Usability suggestion

First I'd like to say I just bought the WoW Programming book and it's awesome! Love the work you've done, and this addon is really cool. As part of my tinkering while learning how to make addons, I became interested in having a mouse click in the Output window set the focus to the CommandEditBox window. I'm one of those aging gamers whose hand-eye coordination isn't what it used to be and that CommandEditBox height is pretty small. I made a little modification to WowLua.xml and it seems to work ok...

This event added to
Code:
<ScrollingMessageFrame name="$parentOutput" maxLines="9999" fade="false" enableMouse="true">
Code:
<OnMouseDown>
	WowLuaFrameCommandEditBox:SetFocus()
</OnMouseDown>

Thanks. I and I'm sure the other users will appreciate it. We may have differing opinions on this point, but to my mind an out-of-date Interface spec is an issue: a minor one, admittedly, but an issue nonetheless.

Perhaps not much maintenance, but still worthwhile.
