Marmalade Quick LUA App Programming

Richard Harris Richard Harris in Mobile Tech Monday, March 4, 2013

Do you like programming apps in LUA? Marmalade Quick might just be a new option for you then. It is a fast, flexible and open RAD programming environment for the creation of 2D games and apps using LUA as the primary language to write in.

It’s based upon Open Source components including Cocos2d-x and Box2D, and the entire engine is made available in source code (rare, I know).

As mentioned, Marmalade Quick uses Lua, the fastest scripting language available, and provides powerful high-level APIs that allow you to create high-quality apps and games in a fraction of the time it would take with other tools. 

Marmalade is completely free to try out but there are some associated costs with it. There are community, indie, plus, and professional license programs that range from$149 per seat, to $1499 per set (anything beyond that you have to call them). Essentially the higher level you buy the more you can do.

The online documentation can be found here.
