I was reading on terralang site about terra language as

"a new low-level system programming language that is designed to interoperate seamlessly with the Lua programming language..."

Zach DeVito (the main author) write about the use of terra :

A scripting-language with high-performance extensions.....

An embedded JIT-compiler for building languages.....

A stand-alone low-level language....

But (may be my fault) I don't understand if terra is:

  1. a luaJit competitor
  2. a better system to interface with c library
  3. something better than luaJit using llvm

Can someone help me to better understand what is going on terralang project ?

Thanks
