rubyapi is an API that can be used to execute Ruby code from a Lua program.
This requires Ruby to be installed on the computer.

If you see the message "Could not run Ruby. Please check if you have Ruby installed."
even though you have Ruby installed and you can call Ruby via terminal, please contact me:
I would be glad if you let me know about this case.


rubyapi = require "rubyapi"
api = rubyapi:new()
print(api:interpret("puts 1; puts 2", true))

Output: [Ruby version]
