Setting up Eclipse for <3 love <3

Post by IndieMedia » Mon Jul 16, 2012 7:51 pm

After several hours of fiddling I got eclipse "juno" on ubuntu to run my game without me fiddling in commandline.
Assuming you already have Eclipse installed

Step one: Open Market place and search for lua.
Step two: Find and click the install button for Lua Development tools (Koneki)
Step three: after installation create a new Lua project.
Step four: click the down arrow next to the Green run button with the red tool box.
Step five: Right click program and click new.
Step six: Name the new config love (or your current project name) then browse the file system looking for the love file for me this was /usr/bin/love
Step seven: under arguments add this: ${workspace_loc:/YOURPROJECT/src}
Please replace YOURPROJECT with your projects name
Step eight: click apply and then run


There will be more efficent methods but this is how I did it anyways, Im a java developer so Im used to eclipse.

I just updated the luadoc to v0.8.0 for LDT. Get the .zip and add it as external lib to your project to get documentation and auto-completion.

Windows is the same thing.... exept where love is located e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\LOVE\love.exe
and project path seems to work too. so you can do ${project_loc}/src

In windows eclipse auto-matily outputs the console into the eclipse run console

The files need to be in the root level of the zip, but github delivers the files in a directory. Just re-zip the files only or use the fixed zip in my attachment.
I made a fresh install on my windows machine and took some pictures of the procedures.

"README.txt" in "love2D_LDT_setup.zip"

Code: Select all

.:: Koneki LDT ::.
 Use the Eclipse Marketplace to install Koneki LDT [ldt1.png - ldt8.png]

 .:: LÖVE API documentation ::.
1. get zip file: https://github.com/mkosler/LOVELuaDoc/zipball/master
2. unzip "mkosler-LOVELuaDoc-fd3cc55.zip" --> folder "mkosler-LOVELuaDoc-fd3cc55"
3. select all files in "mkosler-LOVELuaDoc-fd3cc55" and create a new zip
4. add the new zip as file to your project (drag'n'drop)
5. use it as library [ldt9.png]
6. have fun with luadoc![ldt10.png]

This doesn't work for me at all. I'm using Eclipse Juno and the current latest version of LDT. I used it as a library and restarted Eclipse. Then I did the same thing like five times after that with no results. I did try to put the LuaDoc files into my /src/ folder and I got the code completion when it was in there, but once I removed it from that directory, it didn't work again! Could you give me some light on the matter please, make a video or something even, please?

I sorted it out. I tried removing the Lua 5.1 linked library from the build path and then re-added the LuaDoc. I think it was a conflict between the previous definitions of Lua's API and the LÖVE LuaDoc's definitions.

It look like it needs to be over Lua api in "order and export" tab.

Sweet! Eclipse with love docs is such an improvement over notepad++ :)

if you put ${workspace_loc:/${project_name:/src}} in arguments it will run on any project, not just one
