ChainShapeA ChainShape consists of multiple line segments.
ChannelAn object which can be used to send and receive data between different threads.
CircleShapeCircle extends Shape and adds a radius and a local position.
CompressedDataByte data compressed using a specific algorithm.
CompressedImageDataCompressed image data designed to stay compressed in RAM and on the GPU.
ContactContacts are objects created to manage collisions in worlds.
CursorRepresents a hardware cursor.
DataThe superclass of all data.
Data:cloneCreates a new copy of the Data object.
Data:getFFIPointerGets an FFI pointer to the Data.

DecoderAn object which can gradually decode a sound file.
DistanceJointKeeps two bodies at the same distance.
DrawableSuperclass for all things that can be drawn on screen.
DroppedFileRepresents a file dropped from the window.
EdgeShapeEdgeShape is a line segment.
FileRepresents a file on the filesystem.
FileDataData representing the contents of a file.
FixtureFixtures attach shapes to bodies.
FontDefines the shape of characters than can be drawn onto the screen.
FontDataA FontData represents a font.
FramebufferOff-screen render target.
FrictionJointA FrictionJoint applies friction to a body.
GearJointKeeps bodies together in such a way that they act like gears.
GlyphDataA GlyphData represents a drawable symbol of a font.
ImageDrawable image type.
ImageDataRaw (decoded) image data.
ImageData:encodeEncodes the ImageData to a file format and optionally writes it to the save directory.
ImageData:getDimensionsGets the width and height of the ImageData in pixels.
ImageData:getFormatGets the pixel format of the ImageData.
ImageData:getHeightGets the height of the ImageData in pixels.
ImageData:getPixelGets the color of a pixel.
ImageData:getStringGets the full ImageData as a string.
ImageData:getWidthGets the width of the ImageData in pixels.
ImageData:mapPixelTransform an image by applying a function to every pixel.
ImageData:pastePaste into ImageData from another source ImageData.
ImageData:setPixelSets the color of a pixel.
JointAttach multiple bodies together to interact in unique ways.
JoystickRepresents a physical joystick.
MeshA 2D polygon mesh used for drawing arbitrary textured shapes.
MotorJointControls the relative motion between two Bodies
MouseJointFor controlling objects with the mouse.
Object:releaseImmediately destroys the object's Lua reference.
Object:typeGets the type of the object as a string.

Images that have dimensions that are not a 2^n will display incorrectly as a white rectangle on some graphics chipsets. This function pads images so they will display correctly.

function newPaddedImage(filename)
	local source = love.image.newImageData(filename)
	local w, h = source:getWidth(), source:getHeight()
	-- Find closest power-of-two.
	local wp = math.pow(2, math.ceil(math.log(w)/math.log(2)))
	local hp = math.pow(2, math.ceil(math.log(h)/math.log(2)))
	-- Only pad if needed:
	if wp ~= w or hp ~= h then
		local padded = love.image.newImageData(wp, hp)
		padded:paste(source, 0, 0)
