API

convert(obj, indentation)

Convert object to lua syntax.

  • obj: object to convert
  • indentation: [Optional] spaces to indent

Example

Basic usage:


var js2lua = require('js2lua'),
    input = { a: [ 'abc', 'def'], b: { a: 1, b: 2}, c: '1234'};

console.log(js2lua.convert(input))

// output:
// '{["a"] = {"abc","def"}, ["b"] = { ["a"] = 1, ["b"] = 2 }, ["c"] = "1234" }

Express content negotiation:

var js2lua = require('js2lua');

// Lua Middleware
app.use(function (req, res, next) {
    // Get reference to original send
    var expressSend = res.send;

    // Redefine send to convert body if necessary
    res.send = function (body) {
        // Check accept header
        if (req.headers.accept && req.headers.accept == 'application/lua') {
            // Convert body && set content type
            body = js2lua.convert(body);
            res.set('Content-Type', 'application/lua');
        }

        // Deliver result
        expressSend.apply(res, arguments);
    }
    next();
});

// Add app.router AFTER
app.use(app.router);

Restify content negotiation:

var js2lua = require('js2lua');

restify.createServer({
    formatters: {
        'application/lua': function formatLua (req, res, body) {
            return js2lua.convert(body);
        }
    }
});
