The package chickenize provides several commands and Lua functions to manipulate the input or output tokens of any Lua(La)TeX 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 (plainTeX user interface) chickenize.sty (LaTeX user interface) chickenize.lua (Lua package code) does the actual work You need an up-to-date TeX Live (2020, if possible) to use this package. Maybe a full MiKTeX will also work. (Not tested!) LuaTeX > 1.0.4 is required for some features since the corresponding syntax has changed; tested with LuaTeX 1.12.0 (TeX Live 2020)

chickenize – Use lua callbacks for “interesting” textual effects
The package allows manipulations of any LuaTeX document (it is known to work with Plain LuaTeX and LuaLaTeX). 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” LuaTeX document.
