I'm having this problem again as well. It was a backend problem last time so I'm assuming it's that again. Can someone please take a look?

I have a ridiculously stupid question . . .

I have searched for the plugin/app and installed it.  I see the device it has created, and I can toggle it to enable/disable it.  But where is the configuration tab that the documents reference?  I've looked and looked and I can't find it . . . probably because it's staring me in the face . . .

Hi All of the scenes i ran last week to turn on my TV and etc not longer run on Alexa.  Alexa "Scene Name doesn't support that"  DO we have an update around that issue? :'( :'( :'( :'(

Well, that's the point.  It's NOT meant to be escaped.  No excuse for that it Lua.

However, in XML device files, where Lua is embedded, you do need the XML escape.

According to vera's Settings/Firmware I'm running the latest. It say version 1.7.3231

Any idea how it's meant to be escaped ?

No, it's Vera that has got things wrong.  They really screwed up special character handling on some firmware releases.  I had thought that it was fixed... are you not running the latest version?

An even better alternative is to install the AltUI plugin which gives you a much better interface and, in particular, a Test Lua window which actually works and also allows use of a print statement, which really help debugging.  Try it, you'll like it!
General / lua expressions with less than
« Last post by dualarrow on Today at 06:29:31 am »
I'm tring to get a less than "<" operator working in lua using the "Test Luup code (Lua) in Apps/Develop Apps

If I use a line like

local yy=12
local xx=yy==100

then clicking "go" says "Code sent successfully" as expected, but if I enter

local yy=12
local xx=yy<100

then clicking "go" says "Failed to test code, please try again"

Anywhere I try to use a less than sign I get the same result. I tried using &lt; in case it needed to be html escaped bu that didnt help.

Am I doing anything obviously wrong ?
