I found xdotool (http://www.semicomplete.com/projects/xdotool) that
helps me to do what I want.

For the ones that might interest, the lua code is replaced by:

xid=$(xdotool getwindowfocus)
if ! xprop -id ${xid} | grep '^WM_NAME(STRING) = ".* - Konsole"$' >
/dev/null; then
        pid=$(xprop -id ${xid} | grep PID | awk '{print $NF}')
