Does love engine support as app runner?

Post by bingo » Sun Mar 11, 2018 12:22 am

I know love engine are suppose to make games within love engine & those games are wrapped like zip files but as .love
So I wonder would it be possible for this to become cross-platform app runner similiar to cross-distrubtion flatpak, appimages?
By making apps from love engine & execute it out like execute the .love games.

If it possible to build apps it'd be superb as cross-platform .love packages.
Seems none developers mentions bout this way.

Löve's a framework, not an engine.

I don't really have an opinion on this one, since for one, i use windows, and i prefer to get programs as simple zips without any installers barfing into the registry and stuff; also helps keep portability because it just works from anywhere.

I did find this thread though: ... omparison/
Although, is it such a big issue on linux/unix? is the ppa unavailable on some distros? or is the issue that it needs to be built? isn't those kinds of things bad because they actually include redistributables or whatever, duplicating code? wasn't *nix against that from the start? i don't get it. :monocle:
Me and my stuff :3True Neutral Aspirant. Why, yes, i do indeed enjoy sarcastically correcting others when they make the most blatant of spelling mistakes. No bullying or trolling the innocent tho.
