For GUI stuff I've used lgi, a binding to GNOME introspection. It basically provides GTK, GDK, and other GNOME libraries' API to Lua. It's not the most friendly (since it's a direct translation of the C API) but it's very powerful, and not too difficult if you're already familiar with that API from another language.
