Skynet is a lightweight online game framework, and it can be used in many other fields.
For Linux, install autoconf first for jemalloc:
git clone https://github.com/cloudwu/skynet.git cd skynet make 'PLATFORM' # PLATFORM can be linux, macosx, freebsd now
Or you can:
export PLAT=linux make
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.
About Lua version
Skynet now uses a modified version of lua 5.3.4 ( https://github.com/ejoy/lua/tree/skynet ) for multiple lua states.
You can also use official Lua versions, just edit the Makefile by yourself.
