open with winrar

That won't work with version control systems, though.

For those of you on OSX:

Code: Select all

xterm -e /Applications/love.app/Contents/MacOs/love "PROJECT_DIRECTORY";
Will open with a window for live console output.

Code: Select all

open -n -a /Applications/love.app "PROJECT_DIRECTORY";
Will open a new instance of love every time, useful for testing networked games.

Code: Select all

cd C:\path\to\your\game\
love.exe .
Don't even need the .exe part. That's how I run my game in development. For distribution, because I want people to be able to drop files into directories to add new levels / creatures / items etc I'll be distributing a folder and just use a .bat file to run "love ." (on Windows obviously :) )
