The LuaJIT Wiki

This wiki has been created to gather together resources from the growing LuaJIT community, and to record insights from the LuaJIT maintainers.

What powers the wiki?

The wiki itself is based on Gollum. This wiki is a modified branch of 2.0 (hopefully less modified as fixes and code gets merged back), but should behave very similarly to the embedded wikis included in GitHub project mini portals.

Why do I need to authenticate?

Because open wikis get incredible amounts of spam. We have tried to make it as painless as possible by linking to commonly used authentication providers. If you would like to see another provider added, check if it is supported by the OmniAuth project (or contribute a patch to OmniAuth) and send a post to the mailing list.

How do I associate an avatar (picture/icon) with my account?

Create an account with Gravatar and associate it with the email address returned by your identity provider. Many sites now support Gravatar including GitHub and WordPress.

Why do I get the error "Insufficient data from authentication provider, email not provided or empty"

This means your identity provider did not provide a valid email address when you attempted to log into the wiki.

If you are using GitHub go to your public profile page and verify that the Email field is filled in.

Other ways to edit the wiki

One of the cool things about Gollum is it uses Git as its storage and revision control backend, which means you can clone the wiki and edit pages offline.

git clone git://

You can then use your favourite editor to edit the Markdown source of wiki pages, and push the changes back.

There are no restrictions on who can commit back to the wiki via the Git interface (we hope spammers and spam bots have not figured out how to use Git yet).
