Re: Building with my own LuaJIT

Ah right; forgot that Windows was a thing. Yes, I'm building on Linux. I was hoping to be able to point love to my luajit that exists in my home dir without any sudo shenanigans, but I guess if putting it in /usr/local is the way to go I can do that; thanks. =)

Re: Polywell: a text editor component

I could try adding more documentation to Polywell, but it's written in Fennel, not Lua so I don't know how helpful that would be to you.

Re: Polywell: a text editor component

It's a text editor that opens the console as its initial buffer. Ctrl-x Ctrl-f will allow you to open a new file. I guess the text that displays in the console should explain that. =)

Due to limitations in love.filesystem it only works with files in the directory it's launched from.

Building with my own LuaJIT

Hello! I recently got an arm64 laptop, and it's great. However, LuaJIT had some bugs which caused frequent segfaults on arm64. Luckily these bugs have been fixed in git, but they haven't yet made it to a release. I can't figure out how to recompile Love to use the version of LuaJIT which has the fix...

Fennel Survey

Hello! I'm the lead developer of the Fennel programming language. Because Fennel compiles to Lua, one of the main things people use it for is making games, including love2d games: https://github.com/bakpakin/Fennel/wiki/Codebases#l%C3%96ve-games We're running a survey of Fennel users to get a better...

Re: Polywell: a text editor component

I've updated it to work with love 11.x, yeah.

I am also in the process of porting it over to the Fennel programming language, but that shouldn't affect the ability to use it from Lua.

Re: Polywell: a text editor component

Thanks; I've moved away from `os.getenv` for compatibility. I don't know how to fix the symlink issue since I don't have a Windows machine to test on, but if you have a suggestion I can try it.

Yeah, it looks like the symlink is being ignored. Try deleting it and replacing it with another full copy of the whole repository, or using some kind of windows-friendly equivalent of symlinks, if such a thing exists.

I've never tried it on Windows, but maybe if you included the actual message from the error in your description of the problem I could tell what went wrong.
