lite is a lightweight text editor written mostly in Lua — it aims to provide something practical, pretty, small and fast, implemented as simply as possible; easy to modify and extend, or to use without doing either.
A small utility to convert Unix lsof output to a graph showing FIFO and UNIX interprocess communication.
This is written in Lua, but there are also Python and Perl ports because according to the author, “It seems that Lua was an unfortunate choice, since people keep sending me links to ports in other languages.”
Ouch. What’s with all the Lua hate?
