Re: ZLIB

There are a number of pure Lua implementations of zip compression. Have a look at the list over on the Lua-Users Wiki. LibCompress and/or LuaRocks look like they might be just what you're looking for.

Re: prototype modeling as an alternative to OOP

Alright, I'm starting to get it now. This definitely one of the things that makes lua so awesome: its incredible flexibility. Lua is by no means perfect (it could use a bit more consistency), but rather than define what your best practices should be, it gives you a few basic tools that can do nearly...

Re: prototype modeling as an alternative to OOP

I'm confused as to how "modeling with prototypes" is distinct from OOP. The differences seem to be rather insignificant when compared with, say, the difference between OOP and functional paradigms. This difference is something I'm currently wrestling with as I try to figure out if a language like Cl...

Re: prototype modeling as an alternative to OOP

I'm so lost. I agree that lua is pretty sweet, however.

Re: Debug - A whole new way of debugging your game

Sweet! I made a much crappier version of this exact thing about forever and a half ago. I will totally be using this. Something along these lines really out to be included in the love 2d library itself. You could just set a debug flag and have a nice little console on non-Windows systems. Unless tha...

Re: TextMate bundle, auto-complete and tooltips.

1. This is awesome.
2. A word of warning to other users: if the path to your project folder has spaces, running and building straight from TextMate will probably have problems.
3. Shouldn't this be linked to on the wiki?
4. Man, I haven't posted here in a loooooooong time.

Ah, well it's coming in handy either way. I'll upload something for people to check out sometime soon (if people are interested).

Re: Interactive console

Our main branch is "porting" now. Check http://github.com/bartbes/lovelybigplanet/tree/porting/libs/ for the libs/ dir in the "porting" branch. Ooooh, very nice. I've only been messing around with lua and love for about a week so I can learn a lot from your code here. I can see it was made for 0.5,...

I'm looking at Lovely Big Planet's repository right now and I don't see what you're referring to. I see a ton of LoveUI-related files. Nothing called console.lua that I can see. Am I just missing something here?

Re: Interactive console

Well, I do have command history in my console.. Too bad you only do right-hand dvorak. Well right-hand dvorak is acceptable, I suppose. However, I assume, bartbes, that you console is the one integrated into you little big planet inspired game. Could that be easily reworked and made so that it can ...
