Openresty provides a web server platform for lua based on nginx, but there's no

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.
First, LuaRocks is very nice, and has made some excellent improvements. Also, LuaDist and ZeroBrainStudio are extremely useful. The quality of the little eccosystem that Lua does have deserves a lot of credit for the noticeable improvements that people have made.
Lua is best compared against language libraries with similar constraints/missions, although your observations do have merit.
