Welcome to VR JuggLua!
VR JuggLua is a powerful, easy to use interactive system for developing virtual environments. You can find the conference/workshop paper introducing an earlier version of it through its DOI http://dx.doi.org/10.1109/SEARIS.2012.6231166 or through Ryan A. Pavlik's Academia.edu page.
A better introduction and changelog can be found in the README file, which GitHub kindly renders on the project homepage. It also provides links to our mailing list/group.
This wiki is used more for documentation not tied to specific versions of VR JuggLua.

A Short Introduction to the Basic Principles of the Open Scene Graph by Leandro Motta Barros (LMB)
This is a great tutorial on basic things like State, as well as lighting and shaders. C++-targeted, but the conversion to Lua is easy, just ignore the talk about pointers.
OpenSceneGraph Quick Start Guide, by Paul Martz (Skew Matrix Software)
This is not as quick of a start as the examples and VR JuggLua get you, but if you go beyond the reach of the Lua-ization of the OSG syntax, you might end up somewhere that this book covers. Available as a dead-tree edition or a free PDF electronic book, this is a more in-depth, comprehensive starter guide. Also C++-targeted examples, but the concepts are pretty independent of language. A good fallback if the LMB tutorial above doesn't cover it and you can't figure out how it works conceptually from Doxygen.
