The Script tutorial category covers techniques for creating Foldit scripts, known as "recipes".
Foldit originally allowed very limited scripts known as "GUI" recipes. These scripts could only be created in the recipe editor in the Foldit client, and lacked features like variables and if-then-else.
Foldit eventually added the ability to create scripts in the Lua programming language. This was a vast improvement over the GUI recipes.
As the complexity of Foldit increased, a new "v2" Lua scripting interface was added. Many of the pages in the "Script tutorial" category document individual functions that make up the Foldit v2 Lua interface.
