Latest wxLua version is:
» 18.104.22.168 «
The change log for this and previous releases can be found here.
wxLua can be used as a C++ library for projects that want to add Lua scripting capabilities to their wxWidgets programs or as an application or Lua module for programmers who want to write, debug, and execute applications written entirely in Lua.
If you are interested in using wxLua as a C++ library to extend your program,
you should download the sourcecode and compile the
wxLua libraries to link to.
- Please read the install.html documentation that is provided in the docs/ folder to learn how to build wxLua.
Instead, if you are interested in using wxLua to write and execute Lua programs
download the appropriate binary package, if available.
- The builds may come in two flavors, Ansi and Unicode.
- Lua can only be built using Ansi strings and all of its string functions treat them as such.
- wxWidgets can be built using Ansi or Unicode strings.
- wxLua Ansi Build - Strings in Lua are pushed into wxWidgets as-is to be shown in a dialog or used otherwise.
- wxLua Unicode Build - Strings in Lua are Ansi of course, but when they are pushed into wxWidgets they are treated as UTF-8 Unicode strings and translated to the appropriate wxWidgets Unicode char type. This means that you can write UTF-8 strings in your Lua source code and wxWidgets will display them appropriately. However, this also means that wxWidgets will pass UTF-8 strings back to Lua so you need to be prepared to handle them as such. This means that a single character may not always be one byte long, but up to four bytes, making the use of Lua's string.gsub/mid/... functions harder to use.
Don't forget to read the documentation about the wxLua
and how to run the samples.

Choose either the Ansi or Unicode version and download desired wxLua-X.Y.Z.R-[Ansi/Unicode].zip
The binary packages are self-contained; you won't need anything else.
Simply unzip the binaries into a new directory and run the programs in the bin/ directory.
See the support page if you have problems with installation.
