ZeroBrane Studio is a lightweight Lua IDE. The most recent version

The screencast demonstrating love2d debugging is available here
(http://notebook.kulchenko.com/zerobrane/love2d-debugging). The IDE is
currently Windows-only, but I'm working on a MacOS version, which
should be available in the next release.
Yes, I saw your announcement in the Löve mailing list, and I did a brief test, using the
no-install package (thanks for not making the installation mandatory!).
I appreciate that you use the Scintilla component (via wxStyledTextCtrl, yes?).
I like the clean and simple interface, and a quick test of the debug feature (step by
step) shown it is well made.
Just a suggestion: it might be nice to display the value of a variable in a tooltip by
hovering over the variable name. At least, that's a feature I am used to...
Now, if it is hard to implement, selecting the variable (or clicking inside it) and
hitting a keyboard shortcut (Ctrl+Shift+I in Eclipse/Java editor) to get the information
is fine for me.
I found out that the information is displayed too in the stack window, but I am not sure
if it is easy to manage for large programs.
Also I found a strange behavior (bug?): even on Windows, I have the habit to start lot of
my Lua scripts with #!Lua5.1.exe or similar.
A long time ago, I wrote a little launcher looking at the shbang of scripts and selecting
the interpreter, but honestly I no longer use it, so it isn't critical.
Wouldn't be practical because sometime I had a Lua5.1.exe, sometime a Lua-5.1.exe and
sometime a Lua51.exe...
But I wonder why ZeroBane interprets this # in some way, doesn't display it and reports an
error on the "!Lua5.1.exe" line...
