Lua Learning Official Website!

Lua Learning Website

Created in collaboration with @SteadyOn, creator of RTrack and Clueless


What is Lua Learning?

Lua Learning is a community-driven platform (in a Roblox game) created and designed to interactively teach users how to program in Lua, all for free! It is front page Top Rated as well as featured on the new Learn & Explore sort!

It features an interactive lessons system similar to that of Codecademy, nearly 200 user created and reviewed tutorials, and more. Users can share and learn together, all without ever leaving Roblox.

However, we thought it best to add even more to the slew of free resources offered! By creating our own site we gain more freedom and control over what we provide our users.

What is the site?

Right now, we’re opening up a public alpha test stage. The site exhibits the community created tutorials found in Lua Learning. Feel free to DM me or SteadyOn with any bugs you find! We will continue to grow and improve the site with more and more features as time goes on. For now, enjoy reading the tutorials our users have created!

What does this mean for the game?

Updates on the Roblox game have not been halted, delayed, or affected in any way. By splitting the work between myself and SteadyOn, everything will progress as usual. I work on the game and he works on the site, and everyone wins.

FAQ:

I’ll be answering the major questions here in order to keep things organized and prevent repetitive questioning.

  • How do we search the tutorials?

Although searching is implemented in the game (with custom fuzzy searching) the website is still an early work in progress. Rest assured, we will certainly be adding a search feature.

  • How do I create a tutorial?

Again, this is currently an in-game only feature as we work to expand this early edition of the website. To create a post in game, head the the Tutorials section in the sidebar and the Create subsection in the resulting topbar. You can create and submit posts there, and they will be put into our moderation queue similar to the Post Approval method of this forum. Your posts are to be written in Markdown, and I’ve created a text editor in game full of helpful tools, along with live updating previews, to help you to format your tutorial.

I haven’t actually played Lua Learning before and I’ve just been passively hanging around in its Discord, but I see that it’s become a pretty popular resource for learning how to program on Roblox. I visited once the other day and I’m pretty impressed at the work that’s been done there.

My initial turnoff was probably from seeing all those “learn to code” games before that didn’t do a good job at explaining things and were absurdly requiring payment to play. This though is an absolutely free resource and users can even share tutorials with the Lua Learning community.

I might hanker down to LL every now and again to leave some reviews or potentially write tutorials. My home is still the DevForum, but I don’t mind expanding where I look. There may even be tutorials there that aren’t present on or sufficiently explained here on the DevForum.

Cheers.

Also, even though I already know Lua, I will be showing this to beginners, I would suggest though to add a search bar for tags.

This is awsome!I never thought of this, but this is an great achievement!

Here’s an suggestion on what to add:(I know the site is in alpha stage, but i would like to see the shown things)

1- An searching system, to find tutorials easier.

2- Almost, or every tutorial, an link on the dev hub will be present.

3- An tutorial on how to submit an tutorial.

I hope you guys do that, thanks you boatbomber for everything you done, and SteadyOn for creating the website, this is an ultimate goal to the LL and Roblox Community.

It is such a wonderful idea to use the Official Website by learning things on Lua Learning, and it can be useful for new players and beginners to learn what it’s all about with their tutorials! I can’t wait to check it out on today.

The question is; Is there a way to create our tutorials on the official website that users can create to learn? If so, their tutorials can be added in, right? It would be a pleasure for your response!


Overall, it is amazing to check out the official website! I’m hoping to see it right away. Thank you for making and sharing the official website! :+1:

I only discovered them a few days ago. Sadly, they were around before I got into the development scene and I missed out on that.

Definitely hoping to fill the hole they left behind!

you’re empowering the next generation of lua programmers one tutorial at a time, nice job. always have been a fan of your work and what you do to help this community.

boatbomber/SteadyOn, would you make it so you can log into your acc?For example the way Devforum logs users, using their email.(From what i noticed.)(Just noticed Cinema_Sin asked for it.)

Also, here are other things you could/should add:

4- An FAQ at the website.

5- An sort by system.(The same thing the game uses, sort by Rating, Difficulty, etc)

6- An credits “page”.

I think that would help, thank you for answering me, also, sorry if i’am suggesting too much, i’am really excited with this.

Absolutely. We have lots of things planned. Thank you for your feedback!

Also, it’s SteadyOn, not ScriptOn. Easy mistake to make!

The website looks really good! Lua Learning was one of the reasons why I got into scripting awhile back and even though there was not a ton content it still motivated me to learn more and now I’ve gone so far. This will surely inspire and motivate many new programmers to learn. Good job and keep up the good work!

@boatbomber, how do you have created this website? And what domain do you use? I just am looking for a possible way to make my own Website. I tried using Github and it work, but the style is really limited. So i ask, just for curiousity. But i repeat this: Nice work. Lua Learning really will help others peoples to learn Roblox programming, i am sure. Then how do you have sync the website with Roblox? THis is the only thing that i still not understand…

ok, this is cool, but what happened to the tutorial on how to do a cartwheel? i still don’t know how man…

This is a great resource to share for someone who isn’t able to join Roblox at the moment. Great work to both you and SteadyOn.
