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.
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.
Enjoying my work? I love to create and share with the community, for free.
I make loads of free and open source scripts and modules for you all to use in your projects!
You can find a lot of them listed for you in my portfolio. Enjoy!
