Love.js is unpredictable at the moment.
By "unpredictable" I mean that the error thrown may or may not tell any (let alone the whole) story.
I also mean that out of 2 similar projects one may convert perfectly and the other one would have issues.

I've attached a *.love file which upon conversion via love.js.cmd (0.11.0-rc3) yields the following:

Code: Select all

Error: main.lua:20: Cannot create cursor: Cursors are not currently supported love.js:10:3955
stack traceback: love.js:10:3955
	(tail call): ?
I don't use any cursors. The line number is inaccurate. When I try to see what's there at the love.js:10:3955 my browser freezes and then crashes. Firefox/Chrome/Vivaldi alike.
I can't say I'm doing something extraordinary here, as some projects got converted really well (this one and/or this one)

Could anyone possibly help me with understanding what I'm doing wrong?
Thanks in advance! ^_^

I just wrote a guide about packaging your LÖVE games for the web using love.js and Docker. Because love.js is not in the best shape right now, it also includes troubleshooting tips to overcome some common issues, like the one in the comment above!

Reviving this thread for saying that I extended your Love.js functionality for calling JS functions from inside Lua code, it can be found on the repository

It has examples of how to do it, it can post-and-forget JS functions or it can retrieve the data that those functions return, I'm archiving here for anyone whose is wishing to port your game to Web, as it is extremely important for HTML 5 integration

Love.js - Port to LÖVE v11.3

Post by Davidobot » Sun Jul 05, 2020 8:06 am

I updated love.js to work with the latest LÖVE version. Not everything works, and browser compatibility has been decreased due to pthreads and some browsers disabling support for them due to security risks. I'll release a version that works without them (which would mean no threading support, but I don't think most people use them).

Repo here:

EDIT: Everything works other than shaders.

EDIT2: Shaders are working minimally, see spec test.
My library:

Check out my current project:

Oh hey, I have a website now!
