Lua API

Introduction

The D-Series phones provide a Lua 5.2 environment. The basic functions and modules ''bit32'', ''math'', ''string'' and ''table'' are available.

With version 1.4 we've included the following libraries that you can access in your script by using require. eg: local stringx = require “pl.stringx”

You can also provide custom libraries, i.e. common code that you can access in all lua-scripts. For this you need to provision the luaLibraries. Per default these currently hold a single additional lib that is used by some of our key-templates and is included via require callforward.

Since 1.4 you can use lua-code to inquire which api functions there are and how they work.
