Lua Technical Discussion

Alistair Lowe
 

Hi guys,

I'm interested in the move to supporting Lua templates, is there a technical discussion or documentation discussing the reasoning behind Lua as a language choice?

I would like to put forward Squirrel-lang as a potencial alternative, it is easily embedded and small footprint like Lua but features a more familiar and intuative C-based syntax, very close to Java script and has native JSON support with good end-user documentation.

I'd like to understand more around the reasoning behind Lua and why it was selected to understand if this propos is a sensible one.

Many thanks
