As a REST client -
As a dispatcher -

Lua is a good tool. It's fast, light and easy to code. If you need a
big web framework or a lot of choices in libraries then there may be
better choices for you, but Lua 5.x has been stable for a long time.
That does a lot to leverage the talent of the community and, while
it's still a trifle naive to say "if there's a C library for then
there's a Lua library for it" it's not quite as naive as saying the
same thing about Python. ;)

Yippee-ki-yay, coffee maker.
