Available since LÖVE 0.9.0
This type is not supported in earlier versions.

A Shader is used for advanced hardware-accelerated pixel or vertex manipulation. These effects are written in a language based on GLSL (OpenGL Shading Language) with a few things simplified for easier coding.

Potential uses for shaders include HDR/bloom, motion blur, grayscale/invert/sepia/any kind of color effect, reflection/refraction, distortions, bump mapping, and much more! Here is a collection of basic shaders and good starting point to learn: https://github.com/vrld/shine
