Hi Folks,

I want show you this information about Luavit (if you are interesting in it):
https://github.com/luvit/luvit

In summary, Luavit is a platform we are building that is like node.js only using lua as the implementation language.

The idea is than luvit aims to be to Lua exactly what Node.js is to Javascript.

More information about it:

    There is a conference with respect to this theme



    Taking Tim Caswell's Words:

    Nobody can deny the immense popularity of the Node.JS platform. But being one of the original node contributors, I've often asked myself: Why not lua? Comparing VMs, Luajit is much better than V8 at embedded spaces. Comparing languages, coroutines are awesome for async I/O. This talk is about my journey from JS to Lua and what was learned and where we can go from here.
