Luvit 2.0 - Node.JS for the Lua Inventor

Linux Build Status Windows Build status Coverage Status

Welcome to the source code for Luvit 2.0. This repo contains the luvit/luvit metapackage and all luvit/* packages as published to lit.

This collection of packages and modules implements a node.js style API for the luvi/lit runtime. It can be used as both a library or a standalone executable.

See the main project webpage for more details. https://luvit.io/

Binary Modules

Luvit supports FFI and Lua based binary modules. There is a wiki entry explaining how to manage and include a binary module within a bundled application. Publishing Compiled Code

Hacking on Luvit Core

First you need to clone and build luvit, this is easy and works cross-platform thanks to Makefile and make.bat.

git clone https://github.com/luvit/luvit.git
cd luvit
make

If you want to test luvit without constantly building, use luvi.

luvi . 

Always make sure to run make test before submitting a PR.

Notes to Maintainers

  • Use luvi /path/to/luvit to test changes without rebuilding the binary.
  • To run the test suite, run make test to build a luvit and use that.
  • If you want to test a custom built luvi, run luvi . -- tests/run.lua
  • If you want to run a specific test file with a custom built luvi, run luvi . -- tests/test-<name-of-test>.lua (e.g. luvi . -- tests/test-http.lua)
  • There is a wiki page on making new luvit releases at https://github.com/luvit/luvit/wiki/Making-a-luvit-release.

The packages in deps live primarily in this repo, but some are duplicated in luvit/lit to ease lit bootstrapping. Updates can be pushed from either repo to lit, just make sure to keep them in sync. One way to do this is to rm -rf deps && lit install. This will install the latest version of all the packages from lit. Check the diff carefully to make sure you're not undoing any work. There might have been unpublished changes locally in luvit that aren't in the lit central database yet.
