CGILua version 3.2 is now available!
* What is CGILua?
CGILua is a tool for developing dynamic HTML pages and manipulating input data from forms.
It uses the interpreted language Lua for codifying its scripts.
CGILua has been on the road for 4 years now, being used in many industrial
web sites and academic projects. Its main features are:
through Lua libraries and dynamic loading of C/C++ libraries (uses internally loadlib)
+ multi-paradigmatic scripting
scripts can be written as Lua programs or HTML templates (HTML with Lua code embedded)
environment can be configured providing customized security schemes
source code is POSIX compliant. Binaries were built for Linux, Solaris, SunOS, IRIX,
Windows 9x/NT, and soon for AIX and FreeBSD. Scripts are platform-independent.
it is a Lua application! :-)
CGILua is freely available for both academic and commercial
purposes and can be downloaded from the site below:
