Killer-feature

You can display detailed information about the error and get something like this:

Error

See _example/04-highlight-errors. And read more about it.

Installation

$ go get -u github.com/alexeyco/binder

To run unit tests:

$ cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/alexeyco/binder
$ go test -cover

To see why you need to bind go to lua (need few minutes):

$ cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/alexeyco/binder
$ go test -bench=.

Examples

Functions

package main

import (
	"errors"
	"log"

	"github.com/alexeyco/binder"
)

func main() {
	b := binder.New(binder.Options{
		SkipOpenLibs: true,
	})

	b.Func("log", func(c *binder.Context) error {
		t := c.Top()
		if t == 0 {
			return errors.New("need arguments")
		}

		l := []interface{}{}

		for i := 1; i <= t; i++ {
			l = append(l, c.Arg(i).Any())
		}

		log.Println(l...)
		return nil
	})

	if err := b.DoString(`
		log('This', 'is', 'Lua')
	`); err != nil {
		log.Fatalln(err)
	}
}

Modules

package main

import (
	"errors"
	"log"

	"github.com/alexeyco/binder"
)

func main() {
	b := binder.New()

	m := b.Module("reverse")
	m.Func("string", func(c *binder.Context) error {
		if c.Top() == 0 {
			return errors.New("need arguments")
		}

		s := c.Arg(1).String()

		runes := []rune(s)
		for i, j := 0, len(runes)-1; i < j; i, j = i+1, j-1 {
			runes[i], runes[j] = runes[j], runes[i]
		}

		c.Push().String(string(runes))
		return nil
	})

	if err := b.DoString(`
		local r = require('reverse')

		print(r.string('ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUFVWXYZ'))
	`); err != nil {
		log.Fatalln(err)
	}
}

Tables

package main

import (
	"errors"
	"log"

	"github.com/alexeyco/binder"
)

type Person struct {
	Name string
}

func main() {
	b := binder.New()

	t := b.Table("person")
	t.Static("new", func(c *binder.Context) error {
		if c.Top() == 0 {
			return errors.New("need arguments")
		}
		n := c.Arg(1).String()

		c.Push().Data(&Person{n}, "person")
		return nil
	})

	t.Dynamic("name", func(c *binder.Context) error {
		p, ok := c.Arg(1).Data().(*Person)
		if !ok {
			return errors.New("person expected")
		}

		if c.Top() == 1 {
			c.Push().String(p.Name)
		} else {
			p.Name = c.Arg(2).String()
		}

		return nil
	})

	if err := b.DoString(`
		local p = person.new('Steeve')
		print(p:name())

		p:name('Alice')
		print(p:name())
	`); err != nil {
		log.Fatalln(err)
	}
}

Options

// Options binder options object
type Options struct {
	// CallStackSize is call stack size
	CallStackSize int
	// RegistrySize is data stack size
	RegistrySize int
	// SkipOpenLibs controls whether or not libraries are opened by default
	SkipOpenLibs bool
	// IncludeGoStackTrace tells whether a Go stacktrace should be included in a Lua stacktrace when panics occur.
	IncludeGoStackTrace bool
}

For example:

b := binder.New(binder.Options{
	SkipOpenLibs: true,
})

Killer-featured errors

package main

import (
	"errors"
	"log"
	"os"

	"github.com/alexeyco/binder"
)

type Person struct {
	Name string
}

func main() {
	b := binder.New()
	
	// ...

	if err := b.DoString(`-- some string`); err != nil {
		switch err.(type) {
		case *binder.Error:
			e := err.(*binder.Error)
			e.Print()

			os.Exit(0)
			break
		default:
			log.Fatalln(err)
		}
	}
}

Note: if SkipOpenLibs is true, not all open libs will be skipped in contrast to the basic logic of gopher-lua. If you set SkipOpenLibs to true, the following basic libraries will be loaded: all basic functions, table and package.
