I've been talking to a few people about what needs to be done encourage use of LuaRocks in more places within the Lua community. A common request is "I wish LuaRocks installed packages in the current directory like npm." It bums me out to hear that because it's definitely already possible, but non-explicit documentation hides the feature.
I wrote a guide explaining about how LuaRocks installs packages, and how you can use it to install packages to the local directory:
Feedback appreciated. I also plan to write a few more guides specific to certain environments (eg. using with OpenResty, LÖVE).
Thanks for checking it out
