baabd1dcPhil Hagelberg Track tail calls and hack in early returns. a month ago


Turn Lua code into Fennel code.

Does the opposite of what the Fennel compiler does.

Very immature.


$ luajit antifennel.lua targetfile.lua > targetfile.fnl

Current limitations

Assumes all locals are vars, even if they are not modified. All assignments use set-forcibly! even when regular set would do the trick, because we don't track the difference between locals that come from var vs function parameters.

Inherent Limitations

Early returns will compile to very ugly Fennel code, but they should be correct.

Certain Lua constructs are not supported in Fennel such as goto and repeat.
