Also, there seems to be nothing on that link you posted(no way to download or anything)?

comment LuaJIT and LuaTeX
@Marco I have no idea but it would be nice to know. I have a project that runs off of lualatex and is very slow to run. Could you explain how I might get it to compile using luajittex?

Except that has nothing to do wtih lualatex.

comment LuaJIT and LuaTeX
Be aware that luajit has ffi: http://luajit.org/ext_ffi.html which can increase performance drastically if used properly. The links are still down though after several months. So is there no luaJITLatex?

comment Save tikz picture to disk
@Vivi Yes, in the future, but I have already designed my code around a different method. The main issue I see is having a ton of separate files(not a big issue though) and having external references to each tikzpicture environment(not every one is isolated)... e.g., they use macros, lua code, and stuff that references other things that will be hard to determine...(although maybe not too hard). I will definitely try it if nothing easier comes about. Thanks....

@Vivi: Oh, that would probably work but would be difficult to implement. I have thousands of generated tikz environments. While the it would not be difficult to move them to external files it would be hard to integrate it all back(or maybe not but still more work than the other method). (that is, as long as standalone has no issues with lualatex and I could make sure to include all the external references in the standalone file)

If there is no simple way to extract a bounding box of the pdf directly(there should be, it's not difficult) then I need some way to do it after the pdf has been generated.

comment Save tikz picture to disk
@MarcvanDongen Ok, after trying tikzexternalize it doesn't seem to work. I'm using lualatex and embed directlua calls inside tikz environments. Since tikzexternal calls pdflatex it seems to crap out on the lua code due to the way I use it. I generate tikz images using lua code so it is quite complex and hence the need to save the image.

@MarcvanDongen Nothing if it is easy and works well. I thought the externalize did everything behind the scenes so to speak. I'll look into it more to see if it is can do the job without too much work... but I was hoping there was some relatively easy way to do this already...

@MarcvanDongen As I said, I do not want to use externalize, I have a somewhat better method and more consistent with other things I do. Essentially I would like to have an \export[filename]{...} which will export the ... "visual". This way it can be used with anything like equations, tables, or whatever.
