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 [1].

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.

Not exactly what you asked for, but related: is a browser RPG game 
that lets you control your character by programming. It's a teaching tool with many different 
programming languages available. Lua is one of them.

Hi Milind,

I am a chromebook user and tried to use it for coding.  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. As it was already mentioned, your best bet is online IDE platform, cloud9 is the best imho.

I don't have a chromebook and can't say for it, but I assume those online coding environment
should be suitable, such as ideone[1]. it is not Lua specific, but has good Lua support.

also, there's cloud9[2]. 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.
