xmake v2.1.4 released, support REPL

2017-05-10

Introduction

xmake lua has supported REPL(read-eval-print), we can write and test script more easily now.

Enter interactive mode:

$ xmake lua
> 1 + 2
3

> a = 1
> a
1

> for _, v in pairs({1, 2, 3}) do
>> print(v)
>> end
1
2
3

And we can import modules:

> task = import("core.project.task")
> task.run("hello")
hello xmake!

If you want to cancel multiline input, please input character q, for example:

> for _, v in ipairs({1, 2}) do
>> print(v)
>> q             <--  cancel multiline and clear previous input
> 1 + 2
3
