Why LUA ??
#1
Hello everyone!

Could you please explain to me in details why do we use LUA language instead of embedded C?
On the other hand, what is the hardware architecture embedded inside the spaceLYnk, is it based on ARM or Intel?

Because Lua is much simpler, easier to debug and there is no need for the user to manage memory due to Lua's garbage collector. Since LuaJIT is used performance difference is minimal for most use cases. You can also call C functions by using FFI: http://luajit.org/ext_ffi.html
