Scribunto: An Introduction is a book for people who want to learn how to program using Scribunto. Scribunto enables users to embed the Lua programming language into wikis that use MediaWiki, the software that powers Wikipedia. This book covers how to get started, basic programming techniques, and how to use some of the Lua libraries that are unique to Scribunto. It is aimed at beginners to programming, particularly those who have some familiarity with the MediaWiki software, but may also be useful to experienced programmers who are new to Scribunto.
