I have a mistake in my last email, IPyLua is being implemented for IPython v2.
So what exactly does this do? Let Lua use Python modules?

Before Jupyter, IPython was the named of a frontend for notebooks allowing mixing literate sentences with code and fancy outputs (as images, plots, etc.) This frontend was agnostic of the programming language, however its first kernel was for Python and they called it IPython. Currently, the frontend has been moved to project Jupyter. What I'm doing is continuing the work of Neomantra (lua_ipython_kernel) in order to make it work with IPython v2.

So, this project is a Lua kernel for IPython (not Jupyter), besides a simple API which allow Lua modules to extend the fancy functionality of this kernel, allowing plots, images, etc. Nevertheless, the project stills in development. You can see an example of the notebooks here:
