The article is not very in depth, and technically only uses Erlang as an example, not Elixir. But, I did not know Erlang had Lua embedded. Seems like it could be very useful, I’m going to give it a try. Here is the Erlang Lua library discussed in the article.
I’ve used Luerl very briefly and ran into some serious bugs in how it handles optional function arguments. Those would probably not be a problem in the use case discussed in the article, but I’d caution against assuming Luerl is compatible with existing Lua code in general.
Still, a very cool tool to have around.
This is really good to know!
