Key differences between Lua and Racket

SyntaxLua has a simple and lightweight syntax with a focus on simplicity and ease of use.Racket has a more complex syntax with a focus on expressiveness and extensibility.
ParadigmLua is primarily a procedural language with support for functional programming.Racket is a multi-paradigm language that supports functional, imperative, and object-oriented programming.
TypingLua is dynamically typed, allowing for flexible and dynamic programming.Racket is statically typed, providing more safety and error checking at compile-time.
PerformanceLua is known for its fast and efficient performance.Racket prioritizes expressiveness over performance, resulting in slower execution times.
Libraries and frameworksLua has a smaller ecosystem of libraries and frameworks compared to Racket.Racket has a rich ecosystem of libraries and frameworks, making it easier to find existing solutions.
Community and supportLua has a smaller community compared to Racket, but still has active support and resources available.Racket has a larger and more active community with extensive support and resources.
Learning curveLua has a relatively low learning curve, making it easy for beginners to pick up.Racket has a steeper learning curve due to its more complex syntax and advanced features.
