auto determine primary host


For Linux, install autoconf first for jemalloc:

git clone
cd skynet
make 'PLATFORM'  # PLATFORM can be linux, macosx, freebsd now

Or you can:

export PLAT=linux

For FreeBSD , use gmake instead of make.


Run these in different consoles:

./skynet examples/config    # Launch first skynet node  (Gate server) and a skynet-master (see config for standalone option)
./3rd/lua/lua examples/client.lua   # Launch a client, and try to input hello.

Skynet now uses a modified version of lua 5.3.3 ( ) .

For details:

You can also use official Lua versions, just edit the Makefile by yourself.
