Luna

Build Status Coverage Status

Luna is a bytecode register interpreter for Lua. At the moment it uses Luajit to compile Lua files to bytecode and interprets it.

You'll need to have a few dependencies installed. You can get them with pip install -r requirements.txt. Then make sure you have a recent checkout of PyPy and have it on your PYTHONPATH. Finally you need a recent version of luajit (luajit -b is used to generate the bytecode).

To run the tests::

$ py.test

To translate run::

$ python translate.py

This will compile Luna, it'll take about 30 seconds.

To run Luna directly on top of Python you can do::

$ python -m luna /path/to/file.lua

TODO

  • Compiler in Rpython
  • Interators
  • JIT
  • more standard library functions
