I really want LÖVE-Builder. :( Whatever happened to that? (Aside from nothing.)

It was amazing: upload a .love, fill in a few fields, and it automatically makes binaries for Windows, OS X and Linux and .debs for Ubuntu and oh my god that was just perfect.
Help us help you: attach a .love.

I didn't try it yet, but CDE seems to be a good way to distribute stuff on linux. CDE packages should work cross-distribution, as long as you have the same processor type (i.e. x86 32 or 64 bit).
I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass... and I'm all out of bubblegum.

Hey, thats an excellent way to distribute love games for linux. I try it and it work perfect, but i had to tweak it a little to support love, so if you dont know shell then its not gonna work.

Any chance you can share your tweaks? I'm exploring this right now, and it seems like a great idea.

Even if hello world is 36MB :)

Hmmm...

The simplest can be a .bat file that has all 3 lines for each distribution. Even better, a C program that takes some arguments, and then runs the .bat file depending on the arguments. Even better, a .love file that can create distributions for each OS... a .love that can create a .love..? :shock:

Oh, hm.

I'll host it if that's okay. Of course, it'll be a subdomain of robinwell.net then.

You mean the one that one guy made? I guess he ran out of investor funding.

If you guys didn't know already, Project Hawkthorne already has automatically building binaries. Take a look and see what you can copy.

For my stuff, I have a plain old Makefile doing the work for me

Code: Select all

BUNDLE = fill_in_the_blanks.love
FILES = conf.lua  main.lua  and_everything_else_here

love:
	zip -r $(BUNDLE) $(FILES)
So when I'm ready to stamp out a .love file, I go into that directory and type make love
