Searching something else, I found some projects using Lua but that, for some reason, are not listed in the user project list <>, and rarely or never mentioned in this discussion list.

- FreePOPs was mentioned by the creator (Enrico Tassi?) in this list, it can be found at It allows to access webmail content through a local POP3 server, Lua being used to parse HTML pages (I oversimplify description...).

- Celestia, the well known "free real-time space simulation that lets you experience our universe in three dimensions." <>. It can be scripted in Lua since the 1.3.1 version (current version is 1.3.2).

- MUSHclient is a commercial MUD client for Windows, scriptable in Lua, amonst other scripting languages.

There are probably more, but that's all I found today...

World of Warcraft uses LUA, too. There is even an WOW specific LUA-Editor in the works.

Here are some links:

I wonder, if anyone at Blizzard reads this list; may be they could explain a bit better where and why they are using LUA.
I think this would be interesting to read.
