Supporting Lua

A great way to support the Lua project is to buy a book published by They make great gifts, too!

You can also help to spread the word about Lua by buying Lua products at Zazzle and CafePress.

The Lua project is hosted by LabLua, a laboratory of PUC-Rio (a non-profit educational organization). Your contribution will complement the support we need to keep the Lua project running and will allow us to dedicate more effort to it.

A nice discussion of the costs of developing free software and a good case for why and how you can contribute to a free software project is made by Mary Gardiner in HOWTO Pay for Free Software.

Thank you for supporting Lua!
