[Mod] Interactive Lua command line [mt_repl]

by Kodiologist » Fri Dec 27, 2013 18:31

So I was playing around with the modding API and found myself wanting to experiment with things interactively. I understand WorldEdit has a /lua command, but that seems kind of clunky. So I wrote a mod to provide a read–eval–print loop (REPL). See the README for details.

License: LGPL ≥2.1

Dependencies: No other Minetest mods, but some Lua modules (see the README)

I've used similar things to this (mainly the luacontrollers), but, this is much better. I wonder if it is possible to call up Love2D while Minetest runs.

You might want to explain what repl is, in the forum topic.

Good point. Tweaked appropriately.
