== Description: ==
Emilua is an execution engine for the Lua programming language. It offers to
users of the Lua programming language, a runtime similar to what NodeJS offers
for JavaScript. That is, it offers a concurrency runtime that abstracts IO
operations offered by the underlying OS. Whether your Lua program runs on
FreeBSD, Linux, or others systems, the same IO interfaces will be available.
The project has been in development for over a few years, and it finally
reached a point where it may be of use for more people, so I'll finally
announce it soonish. Therefore, I need a mailing list, and I think Savannah is
the right place to host the mailing list to have discussions with its users
and potential contributors.

You may use Emilua in a range of projects, from building sites to building
torrent clients.

As a consequence of developing Emilua, I found bugs in several free software
projects, for which I either reported the bugs or even sent bugfix patches
myself. Here are a few bugs that were solved as a consequence of this:


You can find the source code for the project at
<>. The first commit dates back from 2020.
However, the code for an earlier experiment that I did would date back even
further (2018).

You may find detailed info on the project in the documentation hosted online
at <>. The same documentation is installed in the
system (as manpages) when you build the project. There's a guix package for
the previous version of the project. I'll update it to the next version as
soon as I release the new version (I'm planning April 15).
