A small Python-style OO implementation for Lua. It also gains some good features from Ruby.
It has been tested on Lua 5.2.3 using the examples in repo. Welcome to fork and test it more.
"Things should be as simple as possible, but no simpler." 
Copy lupy.lua file to your project or where your lua libraries stored.
Then write this in any Lua file where you want to use it:
local class = require 'lupy'
More usage can be found in the examples.
local class = require 'lupy' class [[Person]] function __init__(self, name) self.name = name end function say(self, msg) print(self.name.." says: "..msg) end _end() local I = Person("Peer") I.say("Hello world!") -- Peer says: Hello world!
