Looking for a Lua port (open source) of one of the next frameworks:

If nothing such exists (and probably doesn't exists, or my googling failed), looking for any Lua-web framework what uses embeded Lua in the web-pages (like php) but with the following attributes?

  • component based with hierarchical page inheritance
  • HTML templates (with embeded Lua code) at the 1st request are compiled into pure lua code what is cached
  • and on every subsequent request only are executed the compiled (cached) lua code

  • and, of course - every template execution is sandboxed

And finally, in fact, I didn't found any free Lua-framework can work at least "as php". (LSP - Lua Server pages AFAIK is commercial)

Know anyone such framework?

I think you are looking for http://ophal.org (free software project) since it has most of the things you are asking for:

  • component based
  • HTML templates (with embeded Lua code)
  • every template execution is sandboxed

There is stuff you want that is handled by the corresponding nginx or apache2 lua module:

  • at the 1st request are compiled into pure lua code what is cached
  • and on every subsequent request only are executed the compiled (cached) lua code

Other stuff is still work in progress:

  • hierarchical page inheritance
