New to Lua, a few big surprises and still struggling to compile/run my first experiment
This is my first day with Lua, I am trying to build a GUI App,
I have tried NodeJS/Electron, JavaFX and C# which allow for cross
platform GUIs, but the end package would be from anywhere near 50MB to
150MB just for a Hello World GUI program.
I was really excited to try Lua after seeing a few talks on youtube.
When I downloaded Lua, I was like "How is this even possible".
The Lua binary was just around 230KB!!!
That's even smaller than jQuery and smaller than most GIFs on the
I was able to write a small Lua+FLTK GUI program in under 1 MB.
But FLTK is old & ugly(in my opinion) and I really wanted something
that looked native and modern.
