Where to learn Glua? im new to this programming stuff.

Hello, i was wondering if any of you could tell me where i could start at in learning glua i want to code addons for gmod like the addons here www.scriptfodder.com so if anyone can help me and tell me where i can learn this stuff that would be great. I’m new to this but i’m willing to learn.

Garry’s Mod Wiki
On a side note it’s gLua.

Dont learn to code with the intention of selling it. You will make an ass of yourself and likely release some pretty bad scripts…

And look into learning regular Lua first, it makes gLua easier

I think he was more of referencing the actual addons on scriptfodder

Not making it to sell i was just using it as an example because i want my server to be unique you know? i want to make my own addons. not to sell i had no intention on that.

Well good for you then! Original is great. But work with lua in something easy like TouchLua if you have an Iphone and then move into gLua.

You really don’t need to start with vanilla Lua to do gLua.

Hey, welcome to FacePunch.
I have written over 400 tutorials and completed “systems” in Lua for Garry’s Mod. Here are some resources to help you get started:

acecooldev_base Addon - All of the features above, but packaged as an addon. [ COMING SOON ]

Hopefully these links will help out in getting you started. Definitely check out the mega-threads and ask questions!

Honestly, jumping straight into programming for gmod will probably be the best way for him to learn. If he tries to learn by doing shit he doesn’t like he will most likely lose interest.
