UTC2303 - AP_Scripting: system for switching to alternative versions of lua scripts by tridge · Pull Request #22438 · ArduPilot/ardupilot · GitHub

  • System to switch between alternative set of LUA scripts
  • Some discussion over more filesystem bindings
  • LUA has special handling for integer indexes in tables
    • prefix gives you highest integer index?

  • Why not have a set of directories which scripts are sourced from instead of copying things around?
    • Simple C++, complicated LUA
      • That’s apparently a good thing
  • Having some buttons in MissionPlanner that pre-can the do_aux_function arguments would be nice (so quick-actions that encapsulate the function and switch position)
  • Needs some os. Changes
