Latest release: LuaRocks 3.9.2 - '08/Dec/2022'

For release notes and older versions, see the release history.


LuaRocks is a pure Lua application with no library dependencies. Its current release depends on some helper tools, but you shouldn't worry about them, as they are shipped by default on most Unix systems. For Windows, the all-in-one package already includes them and a binary of Lua, as a convenience.

Once LuaRocks is installed, make sure to read the Documentation for more information!
