Thorium Mod Wiki:Lua

From Thorium Mod Wiki

Lua is a programming language made available at the Thorium Mod Wiki via the Scribunto MediaWiki extension. It is a powerful scripting language that can extend the functionality of wiki templates beyond the capabilities usually ascribed to wiki code alone. It is embedded into wiki templates by employing the "{{#invoke:}}" syntax.

Lua source code is stored on pages called modules (eg. Module:Bananas, a test script). The documentation for a module is stored at each module's /doc subpage (eg. Module:Bananas/doc).


  • Use {{#invoke:Bananas|hello}} to print the text "Hello, world!".
  • See Module:BananasArgs for extended basic code examples.
