I'm looking for a robust Lua code (not data!) pretty-printer. Do you know one?
It might not be what you look for (ie. an out of the box working solution) but for the
record, a solution able to correctly parse Lua source code to a syntax tree, then output
back Lua code out of this tree is probably a step toward a working solution.
I see that Lua Fish <http://lua-users.org/wiki/LuaFish> is able to do that although I
don't know what is the quality (raw or pretty-printed) of the output code.
The Lpeg Recipes <http://lua-users.org/wiki/LpegRecipes> page provides other Lpeg-based
parsers, and the Lua Grammar <http://lua-users.org/wiki/LuaGrammar> page gives yet other
It might be a good starting point for the courageous people with enough free time (and
motivation) to do such pretty printer.
