For September's meeting we have a prolific Lua coder visiting from
South Africa. He also works on lots of other interesting projects that
we can chat about too...

Lua with Android using AndroLua

AndroLua is a demonstration project by Michal Kottman which bundles
Lua 5.1 and LuaJava as an application you can run on your phone or an
emulator. The version I will demonstrate implements a simple TCP
server so that one can open an interactive session on a host machine.
Only weighing in at 260Kb, AndroLua provides access to most Android
APIs directly through Java reflection. It is a good way to learn the
capabilities of this OS without a time-consuming compile-upload-launch
cycle, and Lua modules and other assets can be uploaded to a running
program. I will show how the dynamic nature of Lua and its support for
first-class functions makes Android application development more
pleasant and productive.

Steve Donovan works at CSIR Mining Innovation laboratories,
Johannesburg, South Africa. He has been active in open-source Lua
development, and is a compulsive creator of Github repositories.
