# Lua, unlike many other publicly available scripting languages, is designed to be embedded in an application. Python, Perl, and the like are designed to be used on the command line. Embedded scripting languages offer a degree of developer control that non-embedded languages lack.

The Lua language was developed in UsefulNotes/{{Brazil}}.

The Lua It's important to note that [[SpellMyNameWithAnS the name of the language is "Lua", not "LUA"]]. It is not an acronym, but rather the Portugese word for "moon", as Lua was developed in UsefulNotes/{{Brazil}}.

Lua is a pretty respectable language by itself. @/STUART provides standalone Lua scripts for editing TV Tropes.

1: Lua is the smallest scripting language available. It has very little overhead, and its standard library is very small and tight.

2: Lua is ''the'' fastest VM-based scripting language, and even ''faster'' as [=LuaJIT=].

3: Lua, as a language, is very flexible and easy to learn.

4: Lua, unlike many other publicly available scripting languages, is designed to be embedded in an application. Python, Perl, and the like are designed to be used on the command line. Embedded scripting languages offer a degree of developer control that non-embedded languages lack.

5: On top of being easily ''embedded'', Lua is easily ''extended'', with a simple API used for both that can be used to make Lua interface modules for any C library. (This allows, for instance, an external window using the IUP UI library to control an NES game running in the FCEUX emulator, which has Lua embedded.)

6: Unlike almost all other open source projects, Lua (and other projects in its culture) has no "copyleft" clause (under the MIT license), meaning that you are free to do whatever you want with derivative works that use it, including selling them without disclosing the source code.

1: Lua is the smallest scripting language available. It has a very little overhead, and its standard library is very small and tight.

2: Lua is one of the fastest executing scripting languages. [=JavaScript=] is the only one that is consistently faster, and that only when it is Just-In-Time compiled.
