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.
As you might have guessed, the name "strong" was chosen because it's very close to "string", and because this library makes strings stronger :).
To get an idea of strong's features, take a look at the wiki. Over there you can find the documentation for the operators and the function reference. Be warned though, the function reference is still being written.
A quick example of a few of the features.
s = "Hello world.\nBoo. This is cool.\nHey!" for line in s:lines() do local sentences = line / '.%s*' for _, s in pairs(sentences) print(s:capitalize()) end end
The tests are done using telescope. Have a look at the README for that repository to see how to install telescope. Once you've done that, just run
tsc spec.lua. Of course if you want to see the results of every test, you can run
tsc -f spec.lua.
