    Reliability in production

    Lua vs. JavaScript

    Not at all. JS is filled with so many bad design decisions that it shows all the time. Weird cases like the empty string being treated as falsey in if statements break many techniques that you can easily use in Lua, to name one example. Lua has tl now, which is already looking very promising...
