LÖVE Hints for Brackets.io

Post by Ruirize » Fri Jul 24, 2015 10:54 am

I use Brackets.io for all of my Love2D development, and whilst having the documentation open on another monitor is fine, it's not ideal.

This is why I've created LÖVE Hints!
So far it's a simple autocomplete style thing, but thanks to the wonderful effort of those over at LOVE-API, I've been able to get in-depth documentation for every single function, callback, type, enum and module in the JSON format!

To install, just open up Brackets, hit the extensions button, and search for "love2d"!
After that, just typing in any .lua file will start hinting.

Amazing work! This should come in handy, as I have decided to switch to brackets now (it looks better and does more than Sublime!). I'm also trying to build love from a framework manager extension, any ideas on how to do that?

I'm currently running my LÖVE projects using "Command Line Shortcuts", and a small batch script to open up a console window and run the folder in LÖVE. It works quite well, I've got the hotkey set to CTRL+F5.

Ah, I got that now.. Currently I'm trying:

Code: Select all

[
  {
      "name": "Build with LOVE2D",
      "dir": "$PROJECT_ROOT",
      "cmd": "love $PROJECT_ROOT",
      "shortcut": "Ctrl-Alt-B",
      "autohide": true
  }
]
But it's not running the project. Any idea why?

You may need to put $PROJECT_ROOT in quotes. Other than that I don't know. Try setting autohide to false whilst you debug.

Hey everyone! I finally got around to adding in quick documentation, and now it looks like this:

Just open Brackets.io to update! To activate the new feature, just right-click a love.* member and click "Quick Docs".

Nice! I tried brackets a while ago, but back then it was pretty barebones. It looks really cool now.

P.S.: If you find any mistakes in the API please report them :)

God! Brackets is such a nice editor! Feels so nice to use it. I guess I will use it to edit my code, and ZeroBrane Studio to debug it. It's so good looking and easy to use.

I wonder how possible it'd be to get debugging support in Brackets. I imagine it'd be very difficult.

Will do! So far I've really liked it.
