Key differences between Crystal and Lua

SyntaxCrystal has a syntax similar to Ruby, with some additional features like static typing.Lua has a simple and lightweight syntax, with a focus on simplicity and ease of use.
ParadigmCrystal supports object-oriented programming and has some functional programming features.Lua is primarily a procedural programming language, but it also supports some object-oriented programming concepts.
TypingCrystal has static typing, which means variables have predefined types that are checked at compile-time.Lua has dynamic typing, which means variables can hold values of any type and their types are determined at runtime.
PerformanceCrystal is known for its high performance, as it compiles to native code and has a low-level execution model.Lua is designed for simplicity and portability, so its performance may not be as high as some other languages.
Libraries and frameworksCrystal has a growing ecosystem of libraries and frameworks, but it may not have as many options as more established languages.Lua has a wide range of libraries and frameworks available, including ones for game development, scripting, and embedded systems.
Community and supportCrystal has a smaller community compared to more popular languages, but it is growing and has active support from its community.Lua has a large and active community, with extensive documentation and support available.
Learning curveCrystal has a moderate learning curve, especially for developers familiar with Ruby or other similar languages.Lua has a relatively low learning curve, as it has a simple syntax and a small set of core features.
