Packages for Love2D


There are 2 different packages that can snippets for Love, love-atom, and autocomplete-love. They both accomplish the same thing, although love-atom appears to be up to date.

Launching your project

The love-launcher package can open your project by pressing "Alt-L". Before this works, you need to input the location of the love executable. The love-ide bundle of packages has this feature as well.


The hyperclick-love package makes it so you can click on certain pieces of love code and open the corresponding love wiki page.

Love IDE

One solution to many problems is the love-ide package, which installs many other packages to add all of the features mentioned above, and more.
