* About LuaPretty
  LuaPretty is a syntax aware code highlighter and formatter for the Lua language.
  It can be used separately as a standalone application or as a library from
  within your own Lua project.
  Output of LuaPretty consists of reformatted input source code according to a
  given template, which can be later highlighted using custom CSS to produce
  a valid HTML document containing the highlighted and reformatted code.
  Formatter templates have the ability to make any change in the given source 
  code. Reformatting the source code is only a small subset of changes that
  can be made inside a formatter user template.
