Tutorial :Lua on Google App Engine


Is it possible to use Lua with Google App Engine? I recognize that there will be a lot of Java glue, but I would like to use Lua for most of the logic.


It might be possible with a port of Lua such as Kahlua or Jill (Lua implemented in Java). The Lua Users Wiki page on Lua Implementations does not show any ports written in Python.

But you wouldn't be able to use "vanilla" Lua because that is written in C; as you're probably aware, GAE only allows Java and Python code.


I haven't used it, but Lunatic Python purports to be a way to run Lua in Python or vice versa. If that's true, then you could use their tools to create a Lua interpreter running in a Python app running on Google App Engine. Sounds promising.
