I'm interested in providing my users an Execution Environment with code assistance for an in-house Lua library.

As an experiment I installed the mihini-0.8 Execution Environment from http://wiki.eclipse.org/Koneki/LDT/User_Area/Available_Execution_Environments, then created a Lua project based on that. I got the mihini templated main file in the IDE, so I am confident it has the correct EE.

However, if I try to use code assistance I only get the lua language assistance - none of the mihini code.

This is of interest to me because I want to generate assistance for code that is generated dynamically. i.e I want to distribute documentation, not the Lua library.

Is this possible? Or does LDT require the Lua module to be present as well?

Thanks,

Neil

Hi,

1)For the mihini EE problem, I suppose you didn't see any mihini assistance because you expected new global variable.
Try to do that :
local serial = require 'serial'
  serial.

you should have autocompletion for serial. ( serial.open(port,config) )

2) An execution environment can contain only documentation file, so you can add user assistance even if you don't have source code.

3) You could see some documentation on how to create an execution environment on the wiki (http://wiki.eclipse.org/Koneki/LDT)
see :
How to write it ? => to learn documentation language.
LuaDocumentor: command-line tool => to generate html or api file (file with documentation only from documented source code).
How to make an Execution Environment => to know the structure of an Execution Environment.
