Documentation and help

From LuaTeXWiki


  • The definitive source of information on LuaTeX is the LuaTeX Reference; the link points to the latest version, documenting latest builds, but can be used for older versions too.
  • The previous document reduced to a cheatsheet is also available with the Short Reference.
  • TUGboat (communications of the TeX User Group) has featured regular articles on LuaTeX for some years now.
  • More can be found in publications by local user groups and conferences.


  • The LuaTeX mailing list is frequented by knowledgeable people and questions rarely remain unanswered.

On Lua[edit]

  • Programming in Lua, by Lua's chief architect Roberto Ierusalimschy, is available online for version 5.0, quite usable for later versions.
