This mod is meant to be used by other mods. It doesn't affect your game by
itself. It's also fairly complex due to how the lua code works in starbound. If
you feel this mod may help you but are having trouble understanding how it
works, please file a github issue so I can help out.
What is it?
This mod enables dependent mods to run code inside vanilla starbound files
without modifying the file themselves.
Why create it?
To have a reliable way for all mods to run code in the context of vanilla files
which can't be wrapped via json patches.
**Initially I created this to modify player_primary.lua - however bk3k pointed
out this method may break compatibility with existing mods which wrap vanilla
files via json patches. Not all vanilla files can be wrapped via json
patches so this library is still relevant, however I don't currently have a
need to modify any vanilla behavior besides player_primary.lua so I removed
the vanilla hooks. I also removed the examples previously listed in the
readme because they're not very useful without existing code to reference.
