This demo was written entirely in lua using the ffi to call into OpenGL.
The demo itself is source, and contains Win32 and Linux executables and
libraries for running it. Just double-click the batch script on Windows
or run 'cd standalone && ./luajit jellyfish_demo.lua compo' on Linux.

If you are interested in reading the source, please feel free to take a
moment to point out to me all the silly and plain wrong things I'm doing
with luajit. Some points of interest: the keyframe lookup in rocket.lua
uses a sort, the lack of any sort of prototype-based inheritance, using
an instanced draw call for each jellyfish tentacle, etc. Maybe you can
tell me why I have to call the garbage collector manually in main!

Thanks to:
