Module Review

lua-users home

This page reviews Lua modules. One goal is to identify one or more sets of quasi-official/important modules that are recommended over others as best practices and for inclusion in Lua standard libraries and Lua distributions (e.g. LuaForWindows?).

Function Categories

These are the areas of functions that are important for standard libraries and distributions to cover, along with modules that best satisfy those needs.

Key: [W] = included in LuaForWindows?. [K] = included in Kepler[1]. [A] = ANSI C. [L] = pure Lua implementation (no C)

Module Levels

Modules may be ranked into multiple levels of importance or applicability. A distribution might include the lower levels but not fully support the higher levels.

Characteristics Measured

These qualities are useful for determining the appropriateness of including modules in standard libraries and distributions.
