Take advantage of Corona’s super-fast workflow

Corona Editor offers Corona developers a very capable, yet lightweight, IDE. We believe an IDE is only as good as its text editor, so we have chosen to make Corona Editor a plugin for Sublime Text, the best text editor out there.


Corona Editor makes editing your project a breeze:

  • Debugger: Set breakpoints and inspect variables.
  • Snippets: Get help with syntax and coding conventions.
  • Code completion: Save time for all APIs and constants.
  • Docs: Bring up APIs directly from your code (public release or daily build docs).
  • Launch: Run the current app in the Corona Simulator from Sublime.

For full information, see the Package Control page for Corona Editor. Corona Editor is a work in progress – see the Contribute section below for how you can help.

Get started

To use Corona Editor, there are 2 steps:

1) Download and install Sublime.
2) Install the Corona Editor plugin via Package Control:

  • Choose: Tools > Command Paletteā€¦ > Package Control: Install Package.
  • Find Corona Editor by typing in the search field, click on it to install it.
