Thank you for your comprehensive responses, everyone :)

Is it safe to conclude that I can rely on OpenResty and LuaJIT (Lua
ver 5.1)as a platform to build and scale online services, with a
reasonable guarantee of future stability?

I've also looked at Go as an alternative, although I feel like for a
small team (just me, for now) Lua could yield higher productivity/
speed of development.

Kind regards,
