Recently I started making a new visual scripting plugin and it is doing great so far!
It is very similar to my current plugin EventBlocks. It has the same style of scripting (like Scratch does).
Let’s get right into it!
New features and blocks!
[BEST] LUAU MIRROR
This is the most interesting and special feature, so I’ll start with it.
It will help people to learn lua by using this plugin.
Basically, it displays a lua line for every block and syntax highlights it (it was hard to make lol).
I think this will be a VERY useful feature to learn actual lua using BlockLua. Let me know what you think!
Lists are really easy to use and are very useful.
I will add a block to loop trough lists (with ipairs)
This is the most basic ‘operation’ block.
You can type anything in the center and it will work.
Alternatively, you can use the ‘manipulation’ blocks:
Above is the basic ‘instance’ block.
You can either pick an instance from the explorer or enter your own path to your instance.
the (shortened) block in coding area:
Property and find child blocks
Pretty straight forward to use, I don’t think I have to explain.
Are you interested?
Please tell me in the replies if you want to be @tagged in the upcoming devlogs!
(You will get a notification when it comes out if you are tagged)
When will this release?
I can’t give you an exact date. Probably at the end of this year or at the beginning of next year.
I think this we will help me a lot. I’m a newbie in development, especially in scripting, so this is an amazing new! I’m so happy to see that someone really take of his time to give the best to people!
I’m not saying this isn’t a great idea, but if you really do want to learn to script it’s better to do it usually because it helps you understand the syntax more. In simple terms, if you want to code you must be ready to fail because without trial and error you will never understand it correctly.
