It is often used a plugin language, e.g. Adobe Lightroom, World of Warcraft, and others. Like Python, PHP and Ruby, it is a high level, dynamically typechecked language. It is prototyping, like javascript. The VM is faster and more lightweight than many other high-level languages, and it comes without many libraries to keep the memory footprint small (unlike python, that has the "batteries included" motto). For this reason, it is suitable for programming of embedded devices (like routers with 32 mb RAM). For example, the luci configuration interface for OpenWRT is programmed in Lua.

according to Google Lua is a powerful and fast programming language that is easy to learn and use and to embed into your application. Lua is designed to be a lightweight embeddable scripting language. It is used for all sorts of applications, from games to web applications and image processing.

Yes. It is used for embeded software because if the small size of its interpreter. Esp8266 and wemos chips use lua for example.


Lua is a program that I have always liked a lot, I would like to focus more on it to see how far I can get using it, so courses or other ways of learning to use this language would not hurt me. (;
