For quick developing and testing Lua scripts in Wing FTP Server, we will bring a good Lua IDE(based on SciTE) to you. The IDE includes native debugger, running Server API, keyword highlighting, auto code completion and much more.
Just with a few steps you may enjoy writing Lua scripts, follow me:
Step 1: Download the IDE
Here is the download link: https://www.wftpserver.com/bbsres/SciTE.zip
Step 2: Extract and launch
Extract the file "SciTE.zip" into anywhere you like, then launch "SciTE.exe".
Step 3: Configure
Open the file "lua.properties":
Scroll to bottom, replace the string "AdminName" and "Password" into the real admin account of WingFTP.
Step 4: Edit and run the Lua script
If you want to write Lua script for Event Manager or Task Scheduler, you may write and run it in the IDE first, you can use all the Lua APIs and system variables. When if everything is fine, you may copy and paste the script into WingFTP's Web Administration, that is so easy!
