Tweaking an app can be a time consuming process.  Especially with the time it takes for an app to load up in the simulator.  All that building, and loading is time that could be spent updating your app.

One way to speed up the process is with remote debugging, and I found this great tutorial on how to easily implement a socket server for access, and tweak your app using Lua.

The tutorial is from Miguel Friginal (aka Mystery Coconut) and can be found here:
Tweak Away

Example code is included so you can see how everything is done, and I found it to be surprisingly less complex than it sounds.

In the tutorial Mystery uses the Asyncsocket project to set up the server, and makes use of the Lua Objective-C bridge to enable Lua scripting.

If you liked this, then please share it.  Thanks!
