v8 powered Love2d

Post by 24inch » Thu Aug 13, 2009 2:17 pm

hi guys,

a javascript version of love2d is available.

http://code.google.com/p/lov8

i haven't posted the source codes yet. but an installer and a couple of demos are available for download.

i stripped out all the lua code and replaced them with javascript bindings for the v8 engine.

best! more power to all lovers!

Wait wait, what? You made a LÖVE fork that uses javascript instead of lua?
Now posting IN STEREO (where available)

I would like to see this continue into 0.6.0
Javascript is something I am a lot more familiar with.

My game was programmed in JavaScript until I discovered Löve. And even though Safari was super fast at executing it, it was still way too slow compared to Lua and Löve.

Also, I only see a Windows EXE. No OS X app. Such a shame.

but playing Love games through the browser is probably still out of the question, right? >_> :vamp:

yes it is possible to write love into browser, but this is not that solution to that. What you are looking to do is a Active X plugin which could easily make work in windows only. Or port love to http://haxe.org or Java.

Cool. I'm slightly offended though, because the download part says:
Available for Windows / Mac
For Linux, click here.
Help us help you: attach a .love.

All I ask is whatever road you guys take LÖVE down, please do not leave us Mac and Linux users behind by going Windows only.
