Supersonic Node.js applications with Lua and Luvit.io

Start building 4x faster applications by taking node.js architecture and dependencies into the Lua language using luvit.io (http://luvit.io/) Luvit is an asynchronous I/O which uses the same stack as node.js except V8 is replaced with LuaJIT which is a really tiny jit vm for Lua and super fast. Luvit's event loop is I/O driven like node.js but unlike node.js lua has a really simple C APIs which makes build native modules a bit nicer. Luvit has the protocols and crypto, runs on all major platforms as Linux, OS X, FreeBSD and Windows. It is a cross-platform platform, ready to start building your supersonic applications!
