As a generic comment, I think it would finally be time for Lua community to develop this kind of modules in an organized fashion.

There's so many of them. D-BUS. Cairo. SDL. Multiple incompatible and partial modules instead of a One that would be co-managed by the community.

I think this is where we go wrong, and which keeps Lua back as a language.

Hello, I've searched google and found nothing about lua binding for d-bus.

Before I'm writing my own, I think it is better to avoid reinventing the wheel, I'd like to ask if anyone has known about a lua binding for d-bus.

Thanks in advance.

This is where I get to throw my hat in the ring and say I started working on a libdbus binding a while back also. I got it far enough to begin to
play around with controlling pidgin (then gaim) from ion but then got
side-tracked and haven't gone back to it.

I'm not at all sure I like how I was doing it either so I kept thinking I'd start again more cleanly at some point but haven't done that either.

The code is available at where the -0.0.1 tarballs were 'releases' and the -vcs tarball was a snapshot of the latest code I had (status unknown) for someone who was asking about it in
#lua a while back.

I'd love to work on a dbus module for lua again so count me in if one
wants to get started.
