Show HN: LadyLua, batteries-included static Lua 5.1 interpreter
6 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 8 Apr 2021
GopherLua  is a Lua implementation written in Go, not just a wrapper around the C implementation.
The main alternative seems to be Shopify’s go-lua , given that Microsoft’s golua  is no longer being developed. The main difference between these three implementations seems to be the supported Lua version - 5.1, 5.2 and 5.3 respectively.
I write my own web desktop OS for 3 years and this is what it looks like now
2 projects | dev.to | 4 Apr 2021
It doesn't make sense to ask the user (aka me) to change the code every time I want to modify any web apps right? So I decided to split the webapps into two parts. WebApps are those only require basic permissions and do not interact with the host OS. They will be run inside a sandbox created using ECMA5 VM called Otto. The other type is called Subservice, in which it will need extra permission to interact with the OS and require higher level of access to the backend file system.
What are some alternatives?
gopher-lua - GopherLua: VM and compiler for Lua in Go
go-php - PHP bindings for the Go programming language (Golang)
tengo - A fast script language for Go
golua - Go bindings for Lua C API - in progress
anko - Scriptable interpreter written in golang
go-python - naive go bindings to the CPython2 C-API
