Itch.io App Sample Linux Integration (with love binary dependency)

Post by josefnpat » Sat Jun 04, 2016 1:25 pm

So if you haven't seen the itch.io app, then I urge you to check it out.

Making standalone binaries for windows/osx is pretty easy (with linux being a bit more tricky) but some linux users already have love installed. Itch.io requires some form of executable to be run from the download.

This script when included in a linux package on itch.io will allow you to use locally installed instances of love to run your .love games.

It's open source, and it's pretty simple. Here's a quick tutorial video for anyone who's new to this kind of stuff:

Looks very user-friendly.
But am I correct assuming that it only works on Ubuntu if there is dependency to zenity?

I have zenity installed on arch, but I think I chose it because it's a rather common install. The script also checks to see if zenity is installed and uses it, otherwise it will just spit info out on the stdout.
