In my update to LuaBridge, I added support for three styles of
"Lifetime Management" which directly address the use-cases you
- Lua lifetime: Managed completely by Lua
- C++ lifetime: Managed completely by C++
- Shared lifetime: Reference counted with your choice of compatible container.
These lifetime models are fully documented in the LuaBridge README:
The LuaBridge Demo graphical application (which works on most
platforms) has example code for creating objects using all the various
lifetime models, using the provided reference counted containers:
