We would like feedback from real programmers on a new scripting langue for making web-pages using Lua.
You may also find BarracudaDrive, a free server, useful if you install it on your home computer. The server targets home users and comes with many features that are useful for remote PC management. BarracudaDrive is free for PC, Mac, and Linux.
We call the PHP like scripting language for Lua Server Pages, or LSP for short.
We would like *feedback* on what you think about *using LSP and/or Lua in a device*.
The free LSP enabled server:
On top of all of the great reason why Lua is good non-embedded, it has a straightforward license for embedding, few dependencies, unobtrusive API, a small binary footprint, and very readable/modifiable source code.
The Lua core depends lightly on the ANSI C runtime library. It requires only a few simple runtime library functions and basic C standard library functions.
Another feature that is nice for embedded applications that have limited memory is that the larger parts of the Lua core (lexer, parser, and code generator) can be very easily removed, and still leave a fully functional Lua, which of course can only run precompiled programs.
Let us know if you know about any small Linux type off-the-shelf boards that you would like to run BarracudaDrive on.
