BlockLua | The blazingly fast visual scripting plugin for Roblox. Code with blocks, like in Scratch!

Will there be support for requiring modules with this?

I really hope I’ll figure out a way to do that!

Marketplace blocks and lua block!

Hello!
I added the first two planned features to BlockLua.
The lua block:

And the new Marketplace category:

Here’s a simple example script for products:

And these are the blocks to for assets and gamepasses:

These blocks should be enough for most people I think.
If you have any ideas or you just like the plugin, tell it here in the replies!
Also, I added some cool UI “ripple” effects.

Have a great day!

Nice!
So will this get the same stuff as Event Blocks but better?
And will it get more?
Like more blocks
Or something

Yes, right now I’m focusing on adding every feature that EB has (this will include custom blocks).

And then, I’ll add new blocks and stuff.

I have kinda shifted from the programming scene and have started making music in Fl studio

Tween blocks!

Hi!

Today I added tweening support to BlockLua. The new category has two new blocks:

Here’s an example of using a tween block:

Tweens are really useful for little animations, like pressing a button or opening a door.
Keep in mind you need to know what types of easing styles/directions exist to change those values.

You can find types of Easing Styles here: EasingStyle | Roblox Creator Documentation
And Easing Directions here: EasingDirection | Roblox Creator Documentation

You have to enter their names with proper capitalization to work!

This looks so cool and I see that a lot of work been put into this, I can’t even imagine the complexity of the plugin script, I do have a question though.
Why would you want to use it? (no offense meant)
I don’t see why you would use this instead of a normal script since Lua is such a simple programming language almost none of the blocks’ names would need to be changed from how they are in normal scripts.

Well lots of people seem to struggle with syntax. From my experience with EventBlocks, Luau is a challenge for many.

So this plugin makes it easier by using blocks instead of real code. Also some blocks already do more than just one line of code.
A simple example that comes to my mind is the touched by character block which is using the .Touched event but has an additional if statement to check if a character touched the part.

Ok, so if you have Event blocks already, as of right now don’t buy it unless you want the better ui now
If you don’t have Event blocks and cant decide get Block Lua cause after a while, it will improve a lot and get extra features that Eventblocks didn’t.
So if you have it, wait a bit before getting
and if you dont have EB then get Block Lua

Hope this helped

Due to the fact that I already own eventblocks, I’m debating whether to purchase it if it is superior. If so I’ll wait until a new up[date comes out and then I’ll buy it

I was just looking at this plugin thinking ‘wow this is pretty cool’ only to realise that im a month late and I am poor.

Once I get the robux, I might get this. Looks pretty nice and might actually be easier than needing to deal with the pain that is the Roblox script editor.

Does blocklua have a node editor?
considering that it is superior to silly scratch blocks.
