Cloud9 may be used for Lua development, but by default the Lua development environment is not installed. This is indicated by the following error when running a .lua file:

bash: line 1: ...lua: No such file or directory

To install the Lua development environment on Cloud9, enter the following commands at the bash prompt. If you don't see a bash prompt, open a New Terminal window.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -y install lua5.2

To add a new runner for Lua files, use the following configuration. Save the new runner as

    "cmd" : ["lua", "$file", "$args"],
    "info" : "Running $file_name",
    "selector" : "source.lua"
