That is a very cool wrapper - Lua is great at making APIs pleasant to use.
and lua-flot is a little library I did for an article and
languished on my hard drive. It exploits the near-isomorphism between
involve the cloud in any way. By doing it this way you can use the
Flot documentation directly with a little bit of mental translation.
(Laziness being one of the parents of invention)
At 146 lines, it just does one thing - generates the HTML for a single
graph. There's a lot of available Flot plugins (in particular for
interactivity and image plots), and if there's interest I'll extend
flot.lua to use them in a simple fashion.
The document  was generated by prettify.lua which could be a useful
basis for a bare-bones blogging tool for those who like arguing with
code and graphs.
