Progress on the LuaRocks front

A project log for IOTA the brain of the house

IOTA is an attempt to bring smart homes back to it's roots. Data accessibility. Knowing what the house is doing not just controlling it.

So previously changing the cfg.lua was enough to make everything work. This time I had to open the Makefile and find all the locations where the "lua" bin was mentioned and change it to "sblua" and do the same in the configure file.

I made those changes then passed the sblua include file and /opt/crank/bin where sblua was located and boom, luarocks using a custom interpreter name.

Next up was installing some luarocks.

I installed luasockets, luasec, inspect, and lua-cjson off the bat.

In order to install luasec I needed to run:

sudo apt-get install libssl-dev
