Creating the First Program in Lua
There are no commonly used scaffolding tools for Lua, or anything like that. Just use a text editor to create Lua program. VSCode is a good programmer's editor (aka a lightweight IDE).
$ mkdir first-program && cd $_ $ cat > first-program.lua print("hi lua!") ^D $ lua first-program.lua hi lua!
