|The murgaLua project really is about providing lua with plenty of libs in one static build. Actually it is actually pretty tough to make a "dynamic build" of murgaLua as I had planned. I'll continue working on this and will post results in a dedicated thread.|
Your efforts are appreciated.
With Firefox v2 and murgaLua v0.6.8 we are suffering from feature bloat, and mostly features that we do not need.
murgaLua in 3.x is 370072
murgaLua in 4.x is 636624
That is upx'ed figures. Actually murgaLua is about 2MB!
I suppose I can try to cut more to make room and run murgaLua uncompressed, or fall back to an earlier version.
Something has got to give.
murgaLua seems to be going in the direction of Lua All In One project. They just use a different GUI widget set.
I would prefer to use standard Lua and use "require" for those elements that are needed for that particular script, sockets, xlm, fltk, etc.
I had wanted to use Lua as a general scripting language. But that would mean to double up with an all-in-one murgaLua + standard Lua just to achive that.
