deployment and management system for Lua modules


This package contains LuaRocks, a tool for managing rocks. A Lua rock is a bundle containing a module and some metadata like compilation instructions and copyright. The command line utility luarocks can download, build, install and remove rocks, properly handling dependencies among them and allowing multiple versions of the same rock to coexist.

The tool installs system-wide rocks in /usr/local when run by the superuser, but a regular user can easily tune it to install rocks in his home directory.

This package also provides the luarocks-admin tool, needed to create a rocks repository, and the documentation for luarocks, describing the command line tools as well as the library to manipulate rocks.
