Luci.http error on latest snapshot


I've did a fresh built from master and included Luci with the following packages:

When I try to use the luci.http mudule I get the following error:

  • One liner test script (t.lua)
  • Result
/usr/bin/lua: /usr/lib/lua/luci/http.lua:143: attempt to index local 'L' (a nil value)
stack traceback:
	/usr/lib/lua/luci/http.lua:143: in main chunk
	[C]: in function 'require'
	./t.lua:3: in main chunk
	[C]: ?

Any advice?

Yes, this is expected as it does not work in a standalone manner anymore. What are you trying to use it for?

Thanks for the quick response.

It looks like I just use it once in my library (Add on to OpenWrt) to build a query string

local enc_string = luci.http.build_querystring(q_s);
enc_string       = self:_urlencode(enc_string);
self:log('QS '..enc_string..'END')
url = url..enc_string;
self:log('URL is '..url..'END')

So I should be able to look for an alternative that can built the query string

No, I guess this is fine. I got a similar inquiry recently so I wondered what people require the library for, and it seems it is for the encoding routines, so I'll rework the lib to ensure that those continue to function.

@DirkVanDerWalt - fixed with the following commit:



That will be much appreciated. :ok_hand:

I'm busy adding Private PSK support to my system and for that I need the snapshot code which has that functionality now included.
