... as I also use Visual Code for Coding (as your stackoverflow link),
I adapted to this.

The really impressive thing of Visual Code Lua syntax checking is,
that if there are NO such "curly underliners" (blue/yellow/red colour
depending on error "severeness"), then I usually can be quite sure
that my code will be at least "syntactically accepted" by Lua, and
also no severe veriable name errors usually... .

... so (for my really quite small IoT Lua programs (5-10kB Ascii
code)), I am happy to use this "Visual Code" coding style.

Only thing which is a BIT nerving in Visual Code: It will signify the
":" operator as yellow curly error. (e. g. str:sub(1,4) will give
yellow warning, string.sub(str, 1, 4) will be fine).
