Minimal Lua class library in 4 lines of code: https://github.com/evolbug/lua-clasp

class = require "clasp"
 
 
-- Basic class
Vector = class {
  isVector = true; -- static values
 
  init = function(self, x, y) -- initializer function
    self.x = x
    self.y = y
  end;
}
 
a = Vector(10, 10)
print('Vector:', a.x, a.y, a.isVector) -- "Vector: 10 10 true"
 
 
-- Inheritance
Vector3 = Vector:extend {
  init = function(self, x, y, z) -- function overriding
    Vector.init(self, x, y) -- superclass method call
    self.z = z
  end;

print('Vector3:', b.x, b.y, b.z, b.isVector) -- "Vector3: 1 2 3 true"
 
 
-- Metamethods
