Lua

There are 2 “branches:” of Lua now for ESP8266, and open source model called NodeLua and a closed source model called NodeMcu

As lua.org says, Lua is a powerful, fast, lightweight, embeddable scripting language. Lua combines simple procedural syntax with powerful data description constructs based on associative arrays and extensible semantics.

  • Lua is small: the Lua interpreter easily fits in under 100 kilobytes including the base libraries.
  • Lua is fast: independent benchmarks show that Lua is often amongst the fastest interpreted dynamic languages. The Lua interpreter has been extensively tuned for high performance.

Open Source NodeLua

  • NodeLua - A open source firmware runs Lua code on ESP8266, written by Harold L.
  • Node WebIDE - A pure web-based tool works with NodeLua for Lua programming and run codes on ESP8266 over-the-air.

Closed Source NodeMcu
