love and lua-llvm

Post by pnpbios » Thu Aug 19, 2010 6:35 pm

Love has kept my interest, but I seldom have time to work with it. I had recently found out about a project called llvm-lua and was wondering what the practicalities of getting love to work with it would be? The two advantages being - it would be packaged to a native executable, and since it would be compiled, games could run with significantly more performance.

So what do you guys think?

I like this idea, but I'd like to still be able to run interpreted Lua scripts in .LOVE files.
Good bye.

Not a good idea -- Lua is fast enought, native binaries mean less portability and more hassle for game creators.
Help us help you: attach a .love.
