Glue to hslua for aeson values.

This provides a StackValue instance for aeson's Value type. The following conventions are used:

  • Null values are encoded as the special global _NULL. Using Nil would cause problems with null-containing arrays.

  • Objects are converted to tables in a straight-forward way.

  • Arrays are converted to lua tables. Array-length is included as the value at index 0. This makes it possible to distinguish between empty arrays and empty objects.


This project is licensed under the liberal MIT license, the same license under which hslua and lua itself are published. See the LICENSE file for details.




  • Update to hslua 0.8.0.


  • Update to hslua 0.6.0.


  • Ensure compatibility with hslua 0.5.0.
