We've bound almost the entire Qt framework for Lua using our automated
binding generator - lqt ( ).

Qt is a huge framework, with many classes and methods to be bound. It
would be nearly impossible to do it by hand. The advantage of using a
binding generator allows us to update the binding pretty easily for new
versions of the original library (like transition from Qt 4.5 -> 4.6 ->

Yes, I like to create most of my bindings by hand, and make them work
the "Lua way", but there are simply times when you simply need to use a
binding generator...
