Abstract: With the goal of assessing the use of the tuple space model in the context of event-driven applications, we developed a reactive tuple space in the Lua programming language. This system, which we called LuaTS, extends the original Linda model with a more powerful associative mechanism for retrieving tuples, supports code mobility and includes a reactive layer through which the programmer can modify the behavior of the basic system calls. In this paper we describe the implementation of LuaTS and illustrate its main features with a few examples.
