fengari-web

Provides anything you need to run Fengari in the browser.

Getting started

Download

Visit the GitHub releases page and get the latest version.

Alternatively you can Build fengari-web yourself.

Directly

Load fengari-web in your web page:


Now any script of type

application/lua
will be run by fengari:

Note that if you use a

src
attribute, it is strongly recommended for it to be
async
.

With build process

See fengari-loader

Compatibility

fengari-web should work in all modern browsers.

Verified to work in:

  • Chrome >= 38
  • Firefox >= 19
  • Safari >= 8
  • Microsoft IE 11
  • Microsoft Edge

API

As well as running

 tags, fengari-web creates a 
fengari
global that contains the core
fengari
API
supplemented with:
  • L
    : the main
    lua_State
    (in which script tags are run)
  • interop
    : containing the fengari-interop library
  • load(source, chunkname)
    : a function that loads the lua code in
    source
    with the optional chunk name
    chunkname
    and returns it as a function. This function can be used to programmatically run lua code in the main
    lua_State
    from JavaScript. e.g.
    js
    console.log(fengari.load('return 1+1')())
    

Building

git clone https://github.com/fengari-lua/fengari-web.git
npm install

This should automatically kick off the build process. The built files can then be found in the

dist/
directory.

If you need to rebuild, run

npm run build

Or use

webpack
directly.
