Summary description: A Lua library for drawing Euclidean geometry with TikZ or tkz-euclide
Announcement text:

Here’s the first version of tkz-elements: a library written in Lua. This library can be used to calculate the points of geometric figures in the Euclidean plane. Combined with tkz-euclide or TikZ, it can be used to precisely define the nodes that will be used to construct the figures. This version is a beta version and still under development, so I advise you to use it now as a tool to discover the possibilities offered by Lua combined with tkz-euclide. If you’d like to contribute corrections or new ideas, please don’t hesitate to contact me by e-mail. Future developments will include matrix calculations, parabola and hyperbola constructions solving equations and systems, syntax corrections and more.

The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/tkz-elements The package’s files themselves can be inspected at https://mirrors.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/tkz/tkz-elements/

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Petra Rübe-Pugliese

## tkz-elements – A Lua library for drawing Euclidean geometry with TikZ or tkz-euclide

This package provides a library written in Lua, allowing to make all the necessary calculations to define the objects of a Euclidean geometry figure. You need to compile with LuaLaTeX. The definitions and calculations are only done with Lua.

The main possibility of programmation proposed is oriented “object programming” with object classes like point, line, triangle, circle and ellipse. For the moment, once the calculations are done, it is tkz-euclide or TikZ which allows the drawings.
