This wiki is a sandbox for integrating Lua with Mediawiki using the Lua extension. In order to replace mediawiki templates, a decent library of html templating functions needs to be developed, and this wiki is intended to be a testing site for that.
Mediawiki Foundation PlansEdit
Check out the mediawiki foundation status page The extension which is enabled on this wiki is Extension:Lua. The foundation is moving development efforts to Extension:Scribunto, and I will deploy that on this wiki asap.
What is lua?Edit
Lua (pronounced /ˈluː.ə/, LOO-ə) is a lightweight, reflective, imperative and functional programming language, designed as a scripting language with extensible semantics as a primary goal. The name comes from the Portuguese word lua meaning "moon". Lua has a relatively simple C API compared to other scripting languages.
Lua is widely used in the video game industry. Apart from games, Lua has been used in many applications, both commercial and non-commercial.
