I've created a small PHP-like framework with a WIKI-style markup parser
on top. I disliked (and in my company wasn't allowed to use) PHP, and I
thought writing something of my own in Lua would be more fun anyway:

I have used it for web applications of all sorts (database- and
LDAP-driven appliances, company sites, a telephony system).

I consider it pretty mature at its core, but it surely has some rough
edges and documentation is severely lacking. It features a fast
HTML/Lua bottom-up parser in C and a FastCGI launcher. Feel free to
contact me if you need assistance.
