(This post is from my old, old, super old site. My views have changed over the years, hopefully my writing has improved, and there is now more than a handful of folks reading my site. Enjoy.)

Lua 5.1 was released the other day, and I've updated VoodooPad's "Lua Plugin Enabler" to use this version as well. The plugin uses Tom McClean's uber cool LuaObjCBridge to talk to VoodooPad (with slight modifications), as well as a little bit of customization to lua (!= works as well as ~=).

Lua is a lightweight scripting language which is really easy for developers to embed in their application. It's so easy and so useful that I've been actively looking for excuses to use it whenever I can.

You can get the plugin from the plugin page, make sure to check out the Hello World tutorial and the snippets page as well. The plugin is a universal binary as well (but not very well tested yet).

There is also a "Python Plugin Enabler" written by Jonathan Wight which works in much the same way.

Anyone got any similar bindings for JavaScriptCore? I'd love to add that language as well.
