About the Lua category

This sub-forum is asking for lua help. If you are interested in getting started with lua, here is a brief selection of resources.

  1. Read this: Learn Lua in Y Minutes
  2. Then read this: Programming in Lua (first edition)
  3. Then read this: :help lua
  4. Then read this: GitHub - nanotee/nvim-lua-guide: A guide to using Lua in Neovim
  5. Then read this: Lua 5.1 Reference Manual - contents
  6. Then (maybe) read this: luv/docs.md at master · luvit/luv · GitHub

If you’re interested in why the Neovim project chose lua over competing languages (Javascript, Python), please see this video by core contributor TJ DeVries.
