Codea code outside the iPad

Ways of developing Codea code outside of the iPad include:

  • Export to Xcode: At the Codea Home Screen, touch and hold one of your projects to show a pop-up giving you the option to 'Export' to Xcode. Once in Xcode, only a few further steps are required to prepare a project for submission to Apple for review for the App Store. See David Such's tutorial: Codea v1.5.2: Export to Xcode.
  • Codea Runtime Library: with Xcode and the Codea Runtime Library you can build your Codea project as a native iOS app on OS X systems; and
  • loveCodea: with the loveCodea.lua wrapper and the LÖVE framework you can emulate some of Codea's functionality on OS X, Windows and Linux systems.
