The Variant type is not a real lua type, but instead indicates what lua values LÖVE can store internally. It is used in love.thread and love.event. Indeed, as it is a "virtual" type, it has no specific representation in lua, and no methods.


A Variant can be a table, a boolean, a string, a number or LÖVE Objects.


Foreign userdata (Lua's files, LuaSocket, ENet, ...), functions and nil are not supported.

Nested tables are not officially supported in versions prior to 11.0.
