Got a pretty neat tool that can save you a ton of time if you make a lot of revisions to your game.
It's an automatic .LOVE builder implemented in Lua without requiring any external binaries.
Please download the following maker.love file and extract it to a folder.
Run the maker from a folder to build your .love file:
Code: Select all
love maker --build
You should obviously rename the folder to whatever you like and use the maker as a template.
Would love to get any feedback from Mac/Linux users since I haven't tested it on those platforms.
The lib allows you to customize your build and filter files by extensions, filename and even using pattern matching!
The maker.zip function can output anywhere which is super useful if you are using other tools (like Android's APK tool or Valve's ContentBuilder)
Code: Select all
love.maker = require("maker.main") local build = love.maker.newBuild("lua", "txt", "png") -- include ONLY the selected formats build:ignore('/readme.txt') -- ignore specific files or folders build:ignoreMatch('^/.git') -- ignore based on pattern matching build:allow("/images/exception.jpg") -- whitelist a specific file build:save(dest, "DEMO") -- absolute path and comment/stamp local stamp = love.maker.getComment(dest) -- get the stamp
RamiLego4Game and his file zipping library
*Generates a .love file only from the current folder (the destination love file could be placed anywhere)
*Does not support fused games (it could be done - but we would have to include the binaries for all platforms)
*Empty directories are not included in the generated file (this looks like a limitation of Rami's library)
