Jupiter is a file io and table serialisation library written by Lafolie.


Designed to be easy to use, Jupiter takes a table structure and saves it to a file. You can edit these files in your favourite text editor, or even write them from scratch, and re-load them into your project at a later date.

A simple implementation looks like this:

jupiter = require "jupiter"
--setup a table
data = {_fileName = "example.txt", "Save this string!"}
--write the file (Jupiter handles filenames by referring to data._fileName)
success = jupiter.save(data)
--load another file into a table
newData = jupiter.load("filename.extension")
