Does anyone use Lua predominantly? I'm currently learning it (along with Love2D) and admit I actually really like the syntax and the everything-is-a-table design. Admittedly it has its quirks. I'm wondering why the Lua ecosystem and community is so small compared to other dynamically typed programming languages? I tried installing LuaRocks and installing packages via it on my Windows machine and surprised how it just does not work, and how little support their is.

I learned about it while having fun with PICO-8. It's a lovely language, good design and simple.
Thanks for your reply! It seems Lua is popular in the gamedev space. I looked at PICO-8, and it looks delightful.
