Use ZeroBrane Studio. (And send the author a donation, no matter how small.)

“Unlike Eclipse and IntelliJ [and Visual Studio Code], it has a small footprint and is fully customizable with Lua. Unlike TextMate and Sublime Text, it includes a remote debugger and a full IDE feature set. Unlike Decoda, it runs on Windows, macOS, and Linux and supports various Lua versions with on-device debugging.”

It is *for* Lua, *in* Lua, can *run* Lua and visually *debug* Lua…

…and it will reliably highlight your code *as* Lua, including warning you about variables that shield others (or that are unshielded globals).

The editor inside it is based on Scintilla, so you already know how to use it. 

Highly recommended.
