  • [Suggestion] JavaScript as scripting language

    You already can use javascript with Panorama so why not use it for scripting?
    Javascript is more popular and have better tools than lua. There are dozens of other languages which can be compiled to javascript. So you can use almost any language you want.

      What's inherently wrong with Lua. Just think of it as another language to learn. It's not even that hard.

        Some people just prefer static over dynamic and functional over imperative.
