Codea, Lua IDE for iPad, Now Exports as Xcode Projects

Codea just keeps getting better and better. After you’ve built that awesome iPad game in Lua on the iPad, you can now export your Codea project as an Xcode project ready to go for submission to the App Store.

Codea is quite a powerful IDE with inline documentation, REPL, live preview, a physics engine and more tweakability than you’ll know what to do with. It’s a great way to build games and interactive visualization tools with Lua and the Xcode project export removes even more friction to get the results into the hands of your users.
