but might be because of the focus on Lua as an embeddable language,
not so much as one to write big applications... or maybe it's the
other way around, without any such framework, it looks like too much
work to do big applications.
The only similar options i remember right now are those that bind Lua
to an existing framework like Qt, GTK, wx...
Yeah, I'm starting to think we will have to do some specific to out application, or try to make something generic and contribute it to Lua community, but i don't know if people will find it useful, the fact that there is nothing already done makes me think that no one finds it usefull on Lua applications, or maybe it is like you said, since the applications are not big there is no sense building a notification system, but even on small applications it can be useful, if the notification system is small and fast, the objective is more to provide a way to loose coupling on the application.
I am inspired by the examples on Qt, GTK, wx etc, i already used all them, but i wanted something more generic, not GUI related.
