Q. What is Tile?

A. Tile is a Lua to TIBasic exporter. An exporter is a program that takes code written in one language (Lua in this case) and converts it to another language (TIBasic in this case).

Q. Why Lua?

A. Lua was chosen as the language for the exporter for two reasons: a) Lua syntax is very similar to TIBasic syntax, so this made writing the exporter easier. b) The newer TINspires natively support Lua, so Tile makes backporting programs to older calculators easier.

Q. How can I get started with Tile?

A. Start by heading over to the download page and installing Tile. Then, the resource page has some great resources for getting started.
