I'm personally a huge fan of IUP. As stated, it's practically made for Lua (it's a Tecgraf project that was hosted on LuaForge for years). It's also hugely platform-independent (it's implemented natively on Windows, then in GTK for GNOME, KDE, and OS X, then in Motif for pretty much anything else), and very simple and flexible (a virtue of its Lua-paralleling design).

seems like quite a small community around it. I can't understand why?
Why would anyone want to code a GUI in C/C++ if they had something like Lua?

IUP uses GTK, and was practically built for Lua:
