LuaJIT is a Just-In-Time Compiler (JIT) for the Lua programming language. Lua is a powerful, dynamic and light-weight programming language. It may be embedded or used as a general-purpose, stand-alone language.

Installing LuaJIT on your Tizen device is very easy, clone the LuaJIT repository, switch to the newest created directory, run make and make install.

# git clone
# luajit-2.0
# make
# sudo make install

If you want to follow the 2.1 development branch, switch to it after cloning the repo, otherwise use the stable 2.0 branch (master branch).

# git checkout v2.1

Test if everything works as expected:

# luajit -be "print('hello world')" test.out
