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.

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.

If you use IntelliJ like me, don't use the Lua plugin by sylvanaar. EmmyLua is much better IMO, I never looked back since I started using it.
I still use ZeroBrane for debugging though, as I can't be bothered to try and configure it on IntelliJ.
