I use basic robot a lot in my test world
(A small section of my test world^)
The problem I always have is it is almost impossible to use the robots UI and minetest
doesn’t like me copying and pasting from my IDE.
What I normally do is copy from my IDE to my default text editor and from their to minetest. So what i have made is a mod with a tool that will one click load a file to a robot, luacontroller or luapipe. and can also save to a file.
Here is the link for it https://git.tchncs.de/jackdavidson/lua-tool if any one is interested. The readme file says how to use it.
