Perhaps you have heard of Tiobe and it's programming language popularity index. Lua usually ranks about 18 to 25 on their list.

Tiobe is controversial though because they do not publish how these rankings are calculated.

Another site that does publish their methodology is:

Lua also ranked around 20 on this site month after month.

However suddenly this month Lua is #9!! leaping over giants like Ruby, Javascript, Objective-C and the highly pumped Go.

Out of the dynamic languages only list, they now list Lua at #4 behind PHP, Python and Perl.

Not bad!
