Should be React ported to Love2d?

Post by bludburn » Fri Jun 01, 2018 4:02 pm

Recently I thought: "What if the React was ported to Love2d?". May React be useful for game developers? The task of frameworks like him is to provide a sync UI and inner program state. In the GitHub, you make find Roact - React port for "Roblox" (game).

What do you think about this? :nyu:

I think it would do much better if you would port imgui to Lua so one wouldn't need to compile it in order to use it.

Should? Maybe, it's not reeeally needed.

Remember than React is actually platform agnostic, if you can run JS, you can run React.

That's why things like react-dom and react-native are different packages.

That aside, a component library like Roact (and why not, an entire game library, look at react-pixi-fiber) is a good idea for games than are state-based, like turn based games.
