Cool Announce: Glade4Lua, develop graphical apps for the Iliad

Hi All,

It is possible to develop graphical apps for the Iliad in Lua, by using lgob, a Lua binding for GTK+). See this thread (start at message 44). for details...

It can get even easier:
  1. Design the GUI with glade (visual basic like designer)
  2. Convert design to Lua code
  3. Write the callbacks for the buttons, etc
  4. Run it on the Iliad

The cool step is [2]: glade4Lua, a Lua script I wrote to convert Glade's xml output to Lua. I'll continue working on it when I have some spare time. Feel free to experiment (and comment).

For more info and download: see this dedicated page

Happy coding!

Warning: This is pre-alpha, just a proof of concept for now...

Update...

I developed Glad4lua a bit further. It's getting quite useful...

I just released MiniPad: a small application with a gui desiged with Glade and converted to Lua by Glade4lua.
