Killa

Killa is a programming language based in Lua and Javascript. It uses the Lua virtual machine and the Lua external C API with almost no changes but it has a different syntax similar to Javascript without the prototype mechanism and the ugly parts.

Killa is a work in progress but it is already functional and has been tested inside popular game engines like the cocos2d-x engine: https://github.com/ex/cocos2d-x

Documentation

Proper documentation is missing but most of the functions are straightforward Lua functions, with the same functionality, except index zero changes. Some blog posts exist and you can also check the script examples in the test folder. The Spanish Thesis from where this project was born is here
