Codelobster is the best
But it's not even for Lua.

This user posts nothing but links to this PHP IDE that has no relation to LÖVE whatsoever.
I don't think it's a user with good intentions. Please remove him.

You're right, must be a bot or something.

Intellij IDEA free edition gets an update:
Now you can use inbuilt debugger in IntelliJ Idea. No special settings are needed. Breakpoints just work.

I personally used Programmer's Notepad for the longest time: https://www.pnotepad.org/

But, after taking some time off to write an Atari 2600 game, I ended up using good ol' Notepad, and I haven't switched back, since!
(It's become a real problem, somebody please help! :P)

For anybody who might be interested in THAT project, here's a preview of the first boss: http://i.imgur.com/HDOM9Wj.gif
(This game was only 4KB, that is, 4096 BYTES!)
Lead programmer, and secondary artist at "Nosey Studios", I draw lots of butts! :D

Im mostly new, but I've been making good progress using Visual Studio code on Ubuntu 19.10

I've compiled 11.3 from source, use VSC, and use PixelBytes's "Love Support" here from
https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/it ... yte-love2d

I used atom from Atom.io for a good while with their "love ide" from https://atom.io/packages/love-ide
Although i dont remember why I switched i just remembered i did not want to deal with it.

You mean you guys seriously aren't using CodeLobster with Ph4ntomWizzard1987's patched crustaceanlib.dll which adds luajit support? Are you living under a rock or something?

Intellij is pretty visually appealing I think but requires a bit of setup to run with love2d
I make games that run on potatoes :P

Hello there.

Good thread... I use ZeroBrane Studio, but development of this editor seems to be dead.

Really, what editor is FAST and has good support LOVE2D (debugging in particular) and not to "overengineered" ?

ZBS is still alive. ZBS mailing list is still alive and you get quick answers. ZBS is a matured program with only a few issues (if any). Thats why the mailing list is so quiet.
