Why we picked Lua for our work:
— Fast: Passed all our performance tests with flying colors
— Robust: We didn’t find a SINGLE bug when stress testing Lua 5.2 (example: we created 25,000 Lua states and ran them all for a month)
— Clean syntax: Yes, it’s not a language everyone knows, but if you can’t pick up Lua in a few days max you aren’t a developer.
— Compact: The footprint is important to us for low power and operation on a wide range of devices: embedded to server
— Stable: The release cycle seems sensible, with carefully thought out releases with significant improvements
— Rational C API: Ever looked at the Python one?
