Was just looking at the MediaWiki developers progress on integration
of Lua 5.1. They've generated a fair bit of documentation on their
progress, changes they made in Lua, etc.
<http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Lua_scripting#Documents>. They've got
a MediaWiki extension called Scribunto working on a test server for
integration of scripting languages with MediaWiki. Lua is the only
supported language so far.
Significant progress on an app that has somewhere around 400 million users.
Also found another window manager that handles configuration and is
extensible with Lua. Notion is a fork of the older Ion WM, which also
embedded Lua but is now abandonware. I'm quite impressed by the Notion
documentation for its Lua API.
definitely made very extensive use of Lua.
