Lua Environment Plugin for Databuild

Project Description


In order to be able to use Lua, you’ll need to have the Lua environment installed before you install databuild.


Requirements: Lua or LuaJIT

On Ubuntu, these are the packages you need:

$ sudo apt-get install liblua5.1-0-dev liblua50-dev liblualib50-dev

Then you can install databuild:

$ pip install


Requirements: Lua (LuaJIT is not supported ATM)

Temporarily unlink LuaJIT if you have it installed:

$ brew unlink luajit

Install Lua with brew:

$ brew install lua

Install databuild with the WITHLUA environment variable set:

$ WITHLUA=True pip install

After databuild is installed, you can re-link LuaJIT if you need:

$ brew link luajit
