Running Lua (and/or erlang) on BB 10

Dear All


I am thinking of getting into BlackBerry 10 native development.  I see BlackBerry has ports of Lua and Erlang.  How could these be included into a BB10 application?  Could a BB10 device run an application written in erlang?


For a concrete example, a simple app for learning Lua might include:


  1. documentation (bundle of html files; shouldn't be a problem)
  2. a text editor (shouldn't be a problem)
  3. ability to save files, eg to email later (is there a user-accessible file system?)
  4. an interactive Lua shell
  5. ability to run Lua saved scripts

Would especially the last two be possible?  What would be the constraints?


With thanks and best wishes
