I feel JS is probably better known than Lua, although they're both pretty well known.
Lua's fame is as an embeddable language. I don't think anyone actually builds Lua stuff because they like Lua. It's just so easy to embed the interpreter.
This is true. I've never particularly liked Lua as an embedded language, though.
But maybe I'm just picky.
The downside is that it simply isn't a very lightweight embed.
I'm currently looking at Duktape [http://duktape.org] as a possible solution though. It looks *really* light, and simple to embed. I don't know how well it works but I intend to find out.
Hey, check this out. [ http://goo.gl/oqH3wc ]
Intel is jumping on the "computer on a stick" bandwagon. Reasonable specs for a lightweight client-side system. $149 for the 'doze version, $99 for the Linux version. Looks like just the thing if all you need is a lightweight desktop to connect to services behind the glass.
Intel ought to be making an ARM processor of their own, actually.
Still, I would like to see the SoC become so ridiculously inexpensive that eventually *every* monitor has a local operating system on board that you can use if you don't want to plug a full computer into it.
Like... a smart monitor?
While not all of them are like that, Samsung has certainly already been making smart monitors for a while now.
Yea, sadly miracast seems to be cumbersome to implement, and not fast enough...
X11 still seems to be the way to go...
whew, thats the best webdesign i've seen in ages:
(not... if you mark the code to improve readability it completely vanishes ;-)
(ok, you need to disable .js to get the full picture ;-)
I knew people adding their logos in unused corners of PCBs, but this is...
That's very cute. All boards should look like that.
Nice, I give it a 1 out of 10, but, you can dance to it. /paper bag over head
