Why Lua

Lua vs. JavaScript

I like Javascript and we considered it instead of Lua. It is just not as simple or as fast as Lua.

If you know Javascript well then you will not any trouble picking up Lua. Both languages derive a lot of their ideas from the Scheme language. They both support features like closures.

Javascript is just a little more complicated.

I would agree with Douglas Crockford’s statement about Javascript that : “It never got a trial period in which it could be corrected and polished based on actual use. The language is powerful and flawed.”

Lua had a much more gentle development curve and in my opinion is better for it.
