Glu is a cross-platform GUI for running Lua scripts.  The app includes
a statically embedded Lua interpreter (v 5.4.6) as well as built-in functions
and modules that allow Lua programmers to create 2D graphics and
interactive applications.

Glu is free, open source (MIT license) and runs on Windows/Mac/Linux.
