Subject: Re: Best framework to LUA developing in Tablets? Is it possible?
I found the software quite interesting for embebed system development.
But it seems too advance and sophiticated for our modest intent.
We just try to make a "standard app" that could be run under several tablet platforms, no to develop a sophiticated embebded system.
And users should be able to download the app just as they do with other apps for their platform (iOS or Android).
Installing an embeded runtime for running the app is not an option (I could not understand if crank software installs its own runtime in the tablet target or compiles to the target).
But crank software has several products under storyboard umbrella, may be I am missing the point an there is really a product for what we want: develop the user interface using a RAD tool and program logic under Lua.
I am not asking for free software, but our budget is limited (we can not afford a 2000$ license fee, don¡t know the price of storyboard suite).
Thank you for your guidance, I would be gratefull if you can clarify some of my questions about storyboard.
You might find Crank Software's Storyboard Suite to be of interest .
It supports most major embedded platforms including Android and Linux based platforms. It is designed specifically for
application UI development and supports a "direct from PSD" model for initial application import meaning that you
don't have to spend time mucking around trying to re-skin widgets to get the look and feel you want.
Of course relevant to your main question ... all of its glue logic and system integration is done using Lua!
