Hi,My initial recommendation for the Chrome Book would be Eclipse with the Lua plug-in (I currently use this on my Mac), but a little Googling reveals the JDK cannot be installed on it .For home computers (Windows, Mac, Linux), I'd recommend Eclipse and Lua. If your son has a larger project, it would be nicer to use the home computer than compared to a browser based Lua environment.Sources:

I ended up installing crouton that enables running Linux alongside ChromeOS and later I removed ChromeOS completely and installed GalliumOS, a Linux distribution for chromebooks.

should be suitable, such as ideone. it is not Lua specific, but has good Lua support.
also, there's cloud9. though it is intended for different usage scenarios.
there are many other similar websites, some are really feature rich. you can check them out yourself.
