Lua Showcase

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

Volvo Corona VLC Wireshark
Volvo cars like the V40 Cross Country embed Lua in their combined instrument panel. Corona is a free Lua-based cross-platform framework ideal for rapidly creating apps and games for mobile devices and desktop systems. The widely used VLC media player is scriptable in Lua. Wireshark, a popular network protocol analyzer, is scriptable with Lua.
Grim Fandango Angry Birds LÍVE Nmap
"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) The widely popular game Angry Birds is mostly written in Lua. See a talk by Jaakko Lisalo at the Game Design Expo 2011. LÍVE is a free framework for making 2D games in Lua. Nmap, a popular tool for network discovery and security auditing, is scriptable with Lua.
