Algernon looks like an interesting project to investigate. I've been wanting to try OpenResty, which is the Nginx web server with built-in Lua support.
OpenResty® is a dynamic web platform based on NGINX and LuaJIT.
"Self-Contained Pure-Go Web Server with Lua, MD, HTTP/2, QUIC, Redis Support (github.com)"
Web server with built-in support for QUIC, HTTP/2, Lua, Markdown, Pongo2, HyperApp, Amber, Sass(SCSS), GCSS, JSX, BoltDB (built-in, stores the database in a file, like SQLite), Redis, PostgreSQL, MariaDB/MySQL, rate limiting, graceful shutdown, plugins, users and permissions.
All in one small self-contained executable.
The Lua interpreter is compiled into the executable.
Works on Linux, OS X and 64-bit Windows.
