Latest commit de176b7 May 19, 2016 @cloudwu update to lua 5.3.3 rc2


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.

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