Support ZeroBrane Studio. Pay what you want. Download and run in 30 seconds.


What do I get?

You get access to packages for three platforms: Windows XP or later (zip or self-extracting archive), macOS 10.7+ (dmg file), or Linux (shell archive for Debian, Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Mint, ArchLinux, Fedora, Gentoo and other distributions).

How much do I pay?

This is completely up to you. How much do you value being able to find an issue with your code in 5 minutes instead of 15? Get your mobile application out faster? Have fun helping your kids or friends learn programming using Lua and examples included with the IDE?

Your payment will help support future development of the IDE.

ZeroBrane LLC is not a tax-exempt non-profit organization, so your payment is not tax deductible.

Isn’t this an open source project?

Yes and we make it easy for you to get the code from GitHub and run it from a cloned copy or an archive. We would still appreciate your payment in support of this project. If you decide not to provide financial support this time, please consider spreading the word, contributing code, helping with fixes or documentation, and answering questions other users may have.
