I desperately need a way to render SVG content quickly to PNG or another raster format to generate a logo. But I couldn't find any free tool online to achieve that. This makes me terribly angry at the world… lol… and at the same time this is giving me enough energy to try to build that missing app myself! ;-). Let's get to work!

So today we continue with our NervCode project implementation: so far we have only implemented some minimal support to display our “function objects”, with default names such as “function1”, “function2”. But one thing we will need very quickly is the support to accept more user inputs, such as keyboard inputs.

Yet, one of the key idea in this project is to get rid of the standard inputs mechanism with “keyboard and mouse” and try to provide an alternative solution that would be more “mobile friendly”. And thus, what I have in mind concerning this point is to provide some kind of “Virtual keyboard” around the user location when needed, so that we could keep typing characters even if there is no keyboard available. Let's see how we could implement this…

In our previous article we discussed the initial construction of the HomeCtrl project. The result of that is that currently, anyone sending a post request to the correct URL mentioned in that other article could basically trigger the opening of our entrance gate. [OOooopss…]

Clearly, from a security perspective, that is not so good ;-) So I was thinking we could try to do something about it here…

Okay so, there is a “little home project” I would like to quickly setup here: we are currently using remote controls to open/close our entrance gate [just as most people do!]. But now I'm thinking I could try to push this a bit further and implement a custom mechanism to control the opening of the gate from the Internet éh éh éh [I know: not the most secured thing to do on earth, but we'll get back to that point another day].

If I can do that, then I could create a minimal android app that I could install on our family phones to open/close the gate with a simple button press! That would be great [and fun at the same time]… So where should we start ?

So, in this article, we are going to investigate how to create and display “function objects” inside the NervCode environment. Obviously, we are not going for anything too fancy here, just the bare minimum to consider we are moving forward ;-).

So here we are again, with yet another dev session to try to get the lua bindings for my nvCore module to finally compile properly. On the table today: abstract classes, unnamed arguments, already defined functions and finally link errors: “Bon appétit!” LOL. But hey, the issues are not going to simply automatically fix themself, so no choice here: we have to get to work ;-)!

In this new development session on NervLuna we will focusing on providing the correct support for the operator bindings and also fix some regression issues due to our latest updates on the parsing system. Let's get started!

In our previous post, we were trying to generate the bindings for the nvCore module, and even if we cannot say this was a complete success, we made some significant steps forward. And now, it's time to continue on this path, trying to push it even further. Here we will mainly focus on how the actual binding files are named and what we can do to use short aliases for some template classes when applicable (both issues are closely related, since we use the class name to generate the file name.)
