    GopherLua: VM and compiler for Lua in Go

    Project mention: Show HN: Supershields.io – smart, Lua-powered SVG status badges | news.ycombinator.com | 2022-02-24

    I'm generally using Visual Studio Code for all my development. Really like it.

    I chose https://github.com/yuin/gopher-lua as the Lua engine because it is Golang-based, while the Nginx Lua VM is C, unless I'm mistaken. Using gopher-lua is just easier when I'm working in a Golang project. I only have to work in a single language and dev environment for all the backend work. Makes both development and testing easier.

    Moonscript I might have heard of, but I have no experience with it. I did not consider it here, and I would rarely consider any niche scripting language for a solution I want others to use. It just introduces an unnecessary barrier to adoption.
