Please note that most developers prefer to only bind to the few library calls they actually need. E.g. an rmdir() binding is just a single line with the LuaJIT FFI. And a simple binding to e.g. zlib takes only two dozen lines, see the FFI Tutorial. You can find many examples for this floating around on the net.

The following list only shows larger or somewhat comprehensive library bindings:

Core OS Libraries

Databases

Graphics

Audio & Video

Messaging & Events

Networking

Encoding & Decoding

Crypto

Compression

Game Engines

Cross-language Bridges

Unicode
