Access a page creator in a user macro

I'm trying to create a user macro and I need to be able to detect the creator of the page the macro is used on. I know $ detects the currently logged in user, but how do i find the user who created the page(or at least last edited it)?

found the answer in another person's question:


After much searching, I found a solution for myself. It works because the intended use is in a personal space which is created by the user who also edited the home page last. Still would like to find one that works on a page level for other uses.

It's simply:

I found it on this webpage

The AbstractPage's getCreatorName() method will return the name of the page. This is how I would access it in a decorator, but in a macro, I can't recall how to get a reference to the current page.
