How do I write and compile a .tex file with plain LuaTeX? I use LuaLaTeX to compile some .tex files but how is an example of a plain LuaTeX file and how do I compile it? In the reference manual I did not find any example or a tutorial of how to do it. Is there any resource material in which I can learn more about creating and compile .tex files with plain LuaTeX?

    I don't think there's anything special between plain LuaTeX vs. LuaLaTeX files as compared to how plain TeX vs. LaTeX files differ. You just write a plain TeX file in which you can use the new LuaTeX primitves, and compile that file via luatex myfile.tex. – siracusa Aug 22 '19 at 2:31
