Lua development just got a whole lot better 🧠
The Lua language server provides various language features for Lua to make development easier and faster. With around half a million installs on Visual Studio Code, it is the most popular extension for Lua language support.
The language server can be installed for use in Visual Studio Code, NeoVim, and any other clients that support the Language Server Protocol. The language server can be configured using a configuration file. For a more detailed intro, check out the getting started page in the wiki.
