I am pleased to announce the newly released version 2 of [HsLua], which
offers (bidirectional) glue and abstractions to bridge Haskell and Lua.
HsLua is a featureful framework, allowing Lua to be combined with code
written in the functional programming language Haskell. This new release
is almost a complete rewrite and offers better performance, cleaner
types, and adds more abstraction helpers. It enables users to expose
data and functions from Haskell to Lua in convenient and structured
Probably the best-known real world use case of HsLua is [pandoc], the
universal document converter, where it serves as the central building
block for [Lua filters] and custom writers.
Contributions are welcome.
