Release 0.0.2 of Swig Starter Kit was just released. This release sees the addition of template usage examples, including custom function templates and STL usage. Using a SWIG template declaration we are able to instantiate a specific template and use it from our script code.

//SWIG Code 
%include <std_string.i>
%include <std_vector.i>
%template(String_Vector) std::vector<std::string>;

We can now use the std container classes with our Lua code:

var = SwigStarterKit.String_Vector();
