I think it would be neat to have a Love2d equivalent to gamemaker gml wiki

Post by jbskaggs »

When I was using Godot and got stuck but knew how to do something in Gamemaker there was a dictionary online to see how to do the same thing in each engine.

I think this would be really nice for people like me coming over from GML or Gamemaker language. I think for me the hardest so far was the concept of x and y in Love2d vs GML, objects versus tables, etc.

Of course since I suggested it I should be the one to do it, but my Love2d skills isnt there yet save for the bare minimums. On the otherhand it would probably help me alot by doing so. But maybe making even really basic equivalents might help another GML user to switch to Love2d.

What do you think?

Sounds similar to what Rosetta Code does for programming languages, but for APIs.
Tools: Hot Particles, LuaPreprocess, (more)
Games: Momento Temporis: Light from the Deep, Energize!

I think so. I see rosetta already had some gml and lua.

Here is the dictionary I was talking about for Godot and GML.

An issue i could see with what you linked is that there would be a lot of the following:

"In löve, you implement Objects however you please"
"In löve, you implement Scenes however you please"

etc.
