Getting started with lua and cairo for conky

I've been working on writing Lua scripts to display cairo graphics in conky and I thought I would share some of the things I have learned.  So you can go here:
http://thepeachyblog.blogspot.com/2010/ … cairo.html   that has some general information
and
http://thepeachyblog.blogspot.com/2010/ … n-but.html   where i have given a detailed run down of a lua script line by line describing what each part does.
and another annotated Lua script that is a little more complicated.

Thought it might help somone get started.

Re: Getting started with lua and cairo for conky

here's some more script goodness.  an annotated version of a lua script dealing with the use of a settings table and multiple functions, including a local function.

please feel free to leave me feedback if any of this information is at all helpful smile
or if I'm talking gibberish, let me know that too.
