[_CODE_] Generic Lua Utilities
« on: March 10, 2010, 10:32:26 am »

These are Lua modules, not plugins.  Most aren't specifically related to Vera; but useful to any Lua programmer.   There are (so far) string, time, XPath and JSON modules.

I was just wondering, are there any more 'utilities' people would recommend?

The mios site above has not been updated for a few years..

I suppose it rather depends on what you want to do... what you consider 'useful'.

I have a bunch of functions loaded at startup for doing 'utility'-like Luup things such as walking the luup.devices structure to look for (and exclude) certain classes of device.  But herein lies the problem of reusable software... what I consider useful, you may not... what I like in a module, you may not... my data structures are not your data structures...

Sorry! Obviously hit a pessimistic streak just then.
