In this week’s tutorial, guest writer Ed Maurina explains basic particle emitters and some of the properties which fuel them. Learn how to create effects such as fire, waterfalls, and explosions, all of which are common in game design.
Since the “newEmitter()” display object was introduced in Corona Daily Build #2214, the Corona Labs staff and community members have illustrated various methods for the loading/usage of emitter definition files. However, some users are still unsure about how to create and edit emitters. In this tutorial, we’ll briefly examine emitter authoring tools, the Starling format, and emitter loaders.
Utilizing Corona Enterprise can empower your apps with great new features. In this tutorial, we’ll demonstrate how to add basic printing facilities to an iOS app via Enterprise. Read further to learn how.
Today’s tutorial demonstrates how to create a sliding panel that has many uses, ranging from games to business applications. Using just one core function, you can easily implement a wide variety of panels that appear from different sides of the screen and utilize unique easing transitions.
Today’s tutorial is an introduction to Corona Enterprise development on Android, showing Corona developers how to extend or create a Corona project that leverages native functionality.

Most of us have dealt with generating random numbers at some point in our app development. In this tutorial, we’ll look at the core syntax for generating random numbers, along with a “dice rolling” mechanism for more advanced use cases. Read further to learn more.
In the mobile app world, table views, or “list views,” are based on a paradigm where information is presented to the user in a series of single-column rows. In this tutorial, we’re going to look more deeply at this powerful tool in the widget repository and discuss how to implement some advanced features with just a little extra coding.
Uploading files to a web server can be a tricky process because a lot depends on the web server’s features, abilities, and limits. This week’s tutorial aims to demystify some of the complexity behind this process and includes a sample project for download and testing.
