I use Sublime Text for Lua! It's really good in my opinion. VS Code is probably ultimately better though. I'm just used to Sublime Text.

My favorite text editor is Atom. It's open source, it is extremely customizable and can do pretty much everything that Sublime can.
one difference is the weight

vscode is resource heavy in my opinion but works well if you configure it well

VScode really shines when you install the right extensions. There's a couple really nice ones for Lua support which give you all of Lua's built-in functions and some outlines of tables when you hover over their names, and also a Love2d support plugin by pixelbyte studios that gives you function/parameter completion for love functions, plus a nice little ALT+L hotkey to run the folder you current have open in Love.

For Debugging, ZeroBrane studio seems to be the easiest as it has out-of-the-box support for Love. Some people say they can get easy debugging with IntelliJ Idea, but I haven't been able to get it to work.
