Lapis with MoonScript seems awesome, but the sad dearth of guides, tutorials, tips, etc, presents a challenge. The documentation is good, but if you get stuck, the wealth of snippets and examples other languages and frameworks boast is tragically missing.

Well no longer! We, the community, are here to right this wrong and defeat this injustice by writing posts and recording videos to assist the confounded and rescue the bewildered.

It doesn't need to be long, or complex, but each week we will publish, and our dominion will grow. Join us, and together we shall become unstoppable!

This is also why you should use Font Awesome. The symbol set of 500+ icons is epic, and it just works, brilliantly.

I don't know that anyone else experienced this, but when I first encountered Lapis the setup process definitely took longer that it might have. Thus I've written Preparing for Lapis: OpenResty, LuaRocks, PostgreSQL, Tup, Sass.
