Moon - Python like OO in Lua

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody!

I just finished the work on Moon, a library for Lua 5.3 that provides a class system along with the corresponding functions inspired by the one of Python. It supports multiple inheritance by using a MRO, operator overloading, properties and metaclasses. However, it is rather optimized on flexibility than performance since creating a lightweight class system ought not to be troublesome in Lua.

I recommend just using it when you already know what OOP means in general but not necessarily in Python. I included an introduction of the concepts that are not present in the most common OO languages in the documentation.

You can download it from github or pastebin (id: RgzJxwVF). If you encounter bugs, please report them on github. The documentation is on github as well. I hope it is able to clear all your questions. An example can also be found on pastebin (id: sxrQPdjL).

If you like Python you might also be interested in this post.
