Luapad for GMod 13

An ingame text editor that lets you type and run lua scripts on both the server and the client. Type 'luapad' in the console to open the window. Also added is the command 'luapad_adminonly' (on by default), should be self explanatory.

Tip: I would recommend binding it to a key like this 'bind o luapad'

Note: I do not take any credit for creating this addon, all I did was port it over as best as I could. Some features may have been lost and there are probably a couple minor bugs. I do not plan to continue updating this addon unless there is a fatal bug. If you find a fatal bug, please inform me! I might be able to fix it.

Can someone access my data folder or mess with my server with this?

That code is from the lua files. It's already in there. The problem is why doesn't it work for some people.

I'd love to fix the glitchy text issue, but I have no idea what's causing it. Oddly enough it does not show up like that for me.

That's all nice and dandy. I like tit very much, though it will be nice to run the thing directly with an argument provided as the path to the file you want to open like "luapad directory/file.txt". You can use the concmd.Add argument to make it perfect ..

For anyone experiencing glitchy text, run the following code clientside in luapad. The problem should be fixed for any new tabs or files you open after running it. You will have to repeat this process every time you start up the game until a patch is made. Copy and run below:

surface.CreateFont("LuapadEditor", {
font = "Courier New",
size = 16,
weight = 400
surface.CreateFont("LuapadEditor_Bold", {
font = "Courier New",
size = 16,
weight = 800

I'm also experiencing glitchy and compacted text. Running on a 2560x1440 monitor.

I don't know, but the text is glitchy for me too, like below

Why is the text all compacted? Screenshot:

For everyone who has the "Upload denied byserver!" error, type in your server console "sv_allowupload 1" then you got again the error but the luarun worked.
