Openresty provides a web server platform for lua based on nginx, but there's no
suitable package manager for it.
Comparing to js, I like lua because of lexical scoping, true coroutine, simple and
consistent design, and without the ugly and strange parts of js. So I hope lua can
be used pervasively.
But js seems catching up, let scoping/module/generator/async function will
appear in the coming ES6.
