The package chickenize provides several commands and Lua functions to manipulate the input or output tokens of any Lua document. It serves mostly educational and playful usage, but some functions may be used in serious documents.

To produce the package files, run lualatex on chickinize.dtx, wich should result in the creation of the following files: chickenize.pdf (documentation) chickenize.tex (plain user interface) chickenize.sty ( user interface) chickenize.lua (Lua package code) does the actual work You need an up-to-date Live (2020, if possible) to use this package. Maybe a full MiK will also work. (Not tested!) Lua > 1.0.4 is required for some features since the corresponding syntax has changed; tested with Lua 1.12.0 ( Live 2020)

chickenize – Use lua callbacks for “interesting” textual effects

The package allows manipulations of any Lua document (it is known to work with Plain Lua and Lua). Most of the package’s functions are merely for fun or educational use, but some functions (for example, colorstretch for visualising the badness and font expansion of each line, and letterspaceadjust doing what its name says) could be useful in a “normal” Lua document.
