Re: Blög?

coffee, you forgot that love is NOT commercial software. Popularity isn't even the main goal but to have fun. Also it is exactly that, software "from coders to coders". Normal people don't need to care about which engine a game is written. If someone want to know how love dev is going, he can just h...

Re: A Guide to Getting Started with Love2D

Might be a bit late to answer but well: I did feel uneasy about it, but I though it might also be confusing if there was nothing to say about OOP. And no, you do need to understand the basics of OOP to use the LOVE API properly; otherwise you won't know how to use classes. Lua doesn't come with a cl...

Actually, the OS is called Mac OS, and OSX is just version 10 (X) of it.
Oh my fault.
Well most people just say OSX but yeah you are right.

Re: A Guide to Getting Started with Love2D

Nice guide but mentioning OOP in a text targeted at beginners is a bit too much. Don`t confuse them with advanced stuff. And also you only talk about OO in general so not really love related. And you don't need to know about OO to understand the Love API. On text editors you don't mention anything a...

Re: The "I Love Lua, but..." post

[*]Lua doesn't handle directories natively. This makes using require() very frustrating, because you can't use relative paths. The fact that folders are not supported on ANSI C doesn't justify that they aren't in LUA IMHO. Lua is written in ANSI C and I am very glad it is since this makes sure it i...

Re: Considering picking up Lua

If you really like Lua, make sure to look into Lisp ( Clojure is the "trendy" dialect as of now). Thumbs Down for Clojure I would rather suggest starting with Common Lisp or Scheme first, if you don't have to use the Java VM. A nice book for learning Lisp or even programming in general is Common Li...

Re: Complete Lack of Viral Capability

I don't want any Sandbox for Love.
I prefer less security and being not limited on what I can do with it.
Maybe some runtime option for running unknown code in a restricted mode would be handy but Sandbox should NOT be default.

Re: Try Love in your Browser

But on the topic of LÖVE-in-the-browser: wouldn't JavaScript + Canvas or WebGL be a better choice? Not sure how we could use Lua then (is there a JavaScript Lua interpreter?), but it would be awesome, and a lot lighter than Flash. (Also: freeeeee!) There is no Lua Interpreter written in JavaScript ...

Re: Try Love in your Browser

Pastebin supports tabs. Pastebin doesn't use Flash, does it? Oh and speaking of pastebin it would be cool if the example browser could load lua file from the Web (like from pastebin). Like doing SiteOfLoveAlchemy.org/load=http://pastebin.com/Foo So small demos could be shared easy. I think it is po...
