Lua Showcase

Lua is used in many products and projects around the world. Here are some highlights. A different selection is shown every day.

Wireshark Celestia Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Cisco
Wireshark, a popular network protocol analyzer, is scriptable with Lua. Celestia is a real-time 3D visualization of space that can be scripted with Lua. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is mostly written in Lua. Lightroom also supports Lua plug-ins. Cisco IP Cameras can be controlled using Lua.
Corona Grim Fandango Snort Volvo
Corona is a free Lua-based cross-platform framework ideal for rapidly creating apps and games for mobile devices and desktop systems. "Grim Fandango was the first game that shows Lua could not only be used to make a good game, but that it could be used to make some of the best games ever." (cited here; see also this) Snort, a popular network intrusion prevention and detection system, is scriptable with Lua. Volvo cars like the V40 Cross Country embed Lua in their combined instrument panel.
