Hi, I am a developer of the Lua-DataVis-Plugin (https://marketplace.coronalabs.com/corona-plugins/lua-datavis-plugin). In fact, I have been using Lua and Corona for only two months I like Corona for its speed, cross-platform and simplicity. And I would like to discuss my idea with you.
Why not use Corona to develop software for data processing and analysis? Yes, I know about programs like Matlab, Mathematica, Mathcad, Jupiter notebook or at least Excel And I’m not going to “reinvent the wheel” But, the Lua language is very fast, and in Corona it is not difficult to create 2D / 3D graphics. What if I try to make a simple and intuitive interface for working with data?
Here is a short list of tasks that a program should be able to:
Presentation of raw data in 2D / 3D. Data can be downloaded from a text file, from a DBMS (for example MySQL), received via HTTP requests.
Manipulating data using graphical interface elements, without entering text commands. I thought about cross-platform, I would like users to be able to fully use the program from any device, starting from a mobile phone, ending with SmartTV
Saving processed data in a text file, database, and so on.
How do you like this idea? Will it be in demand? What features would you add?
