Mruby vs. lua

Hi,

How will mruby compare to lua?

I could use mruby similar to lua, is that one of the main ideas behind
mruby?

And I assume that folks who know C will significantly profit from mruby
more so than “normal” ruby users who know only ruby?

Hi,

Basic aim of mruby is similar to Lua. The biggest differences are:

  • some prefer Ruby to Lua

  • mruby comes with standard compiled libraries written in Ruby

  • mruby has API that does not need to tweek VM stack directly

  • Lua is smaller, and LuaJIT is faster

            matz.
