LuaJIT

Yichun Zhang , 25 Jan 2014 (created 21 Jun 2011)

LuaJIT is a Just-In-Time Compiler for the Lua programming language.

Homepage: http://luajit.org/luajit.html

LuaJIT is enabled by default since OpenResty 1.5.8.1. Please explicitly specify the --with-luajit option while configuring OpenResty older than 1.5.8.1. See Installation for details.

Modern OpenResty uses its own branch of LuaJIT with various important bug fixes and optimizations for OpenResty's use cases.
