An Introduction to Luvit*
Luvit is a new open source asynchronous framework. We will dive into what this project does, how it works, and what the goals are for the future.
Luvit is a new asynchronous framework similar to Node.js based on Lua. Tim Caswell created the project and it is released under an Apache 2 license.
Luvit is faster than Node.js, uses less memory, and is ideal for certain environments. The following topics will be covered:
- Introduction to Luvit – HTTP Server Example, Object Model
- Practical Uses – Embedded, Virtual Servers, Mobile Devices
