  • The first time I heard about Lua was when I participated in the redaction of The Year In Scripting Languages 2002 [vendian.org]. Lots of links there. It looks like a not well-known language but with a small and dynamic community.
    • This is probably due to the niche it fills. There appears to be no Lua newsgroup, only one mailinglist to which I had to subscribe to get some help yesterday. The list is active and the replies I got were prompt and competent.

      I haven't yet grokked the 'social structure' of this list but it appears that Lua's developers are there, too. It's odd in that both the people using Lua as a programming language and those more concerned with embedding Lua (and thus focussing on Lua's C API) can be found on the same mailinglist. From the tone and level of the list I conclude that its community might be one of Lua's strong points.
