A gentle reminder that if you want people to share in the Lua library
goodness you create, you need to list your library on the correct
It's helpful if you include in your description which versions of Lua
your library has been tested with.
I'm not sure if this was specifically for me or a general reminder, but I'm
curious about it either way.
When I need a lua library, my first instinct isn't to go to that wiki at
all, but to go to LuaRocks. And it's suprising to me that the wiki
doesn't even mention LuaRocks.
I'm wonder if this is just a cultural split between (relatively) newer and
older users of Lua. I'd be curious to hear other thoughts.
I’ve had some surprises lately in modules that I never heard of, that were on LuaRocks. I don’t know for sure, but my guess is that since Leaf Corcoran launched MoonRocks, and everyone could upload his own modules, many modules are no longer announced.
Which is a pity imo, as I always scan the list for [ANN]s as well. Maybe a small textual nudge on the upload pages would help?
Take away; search the LuaRocks site too, not everything in there is announced here on the list…
