Provides Lua binary on Windows.
Embedding Lua into Ruby on Windows has two issues:
- There is no standard binary distributive for Lua
- Lua way of searching for libraries (rocks) fails
So, this gem embeds binary Lua (from LuaDist) and patches package.path and package.cpath.
You don't need to download, install or compile any Lua distribution. Just add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install rufus-lua-win
Add two lines to Gemfile (in that order):
gem 'rufus-lua-win' if Gem.win_platform? gem 'rufus-lua'
Rufus::Lua::Win will setup environment variables, so Rufus::Lua could load.
If not using bundler, just:
require 'rufus/lua/win' if Gem.win_platform? require 'rufus/lua' s=Rufus::Lua::State.new s.eval "require 'lpeg'" ...
Rufus::Lua::Win overrides standard Lua search paths to point to its own Lua libraries.
./?.dll are excluded, since they are not very useful
in embedded environment.
If you like to
require your own files inside Rufus::Lua - put them in
separate folder and add it to package.path (or package.cpath).
