Some Great Lua Functions ❗
These are some functions I’ve used and thought were worth writing down.
I’m organizing them by category, for ease of navigation.
If you are using a language like PICO-8, and it has some slightly different names for its functions, use the language agnostic code snippet to make it work with your language of choice.
Language Agnostic 💬
-- pico-8 uses tostr instead of tostring, and this should fix it to work. if type(tostring) ~= 'function' then tostring = tostr else tostr = tostring end
Table Functions 💽
-- Logs a table to the console in no fixed order function pt(t) for k,v in pairs(t) do print(tostring(k)..": "..tostring(v)) end end
