Strong is a small Lua library that adds a lot of utilities to Lua's string library, and also adds some operators to strings themselves. It is currently at version 1.0.4.
As you might have guessed, the name "strong" was chosen because it's very close to "string", and because this library makes strings stronger :).
A quick example of a few of the features.
s = "Hello world.\nBoo. This is cool.\nHey!" for line in s:lines() do for _, s in pairs(line / ' ') print(s:capitalize()) end end

tsc spec.lua. Of course if you want to see the results of every test, you can run
tsc -f spec.lua.
