Porting love2d to other platforms

Post by j3d1 »

Hi! Love2d - a cool language, are you want to expand the list of supported platforms for him in future? IMHO, it would be nice to make a port for Windows Mobile :)
p.s. sorry for my Eng :)

There's already a Cannoo port. In the Projects and Demos board.

I can tell you there's nlove, which basically replaces hard-to-port modules with SDL. (OpenGL for example) Nlove runs on the Ben NanoNote, the Caanoo and the Dingoo at the moment (as well as on linux and windows+cygwin).
Also, there are some vague rumors about a port to Apple libraries... hmm, I wonder what that could be for..

Well it's always kind of hard to port to a platform you don't have..., maybe WinMo can run SDL?

Yes, SDL has been ported to WinMob. There sdl.dll for this platform, and header files for this dll.

Last time I checked, it was an engine which uses Lua.

Steps:
1. Compile.
2. If 1 failed, debug and repeat.
3. Publish to the interwebs so you can brag/etc.

Hope that helps. :P

Thank you for the farewell, but I'm afraid my experience with the configure & make will not be enough, even though the Code::Blocks already configured with the toolchain for WinMob with SDL port. That would still get the project files... Dreams...
Okay, I'll try to compile myself. Good luck to me =)

Good luck. And if you don't succeed, don't worry. Experience teaches that someone will come along who will, eventually. :)
Help us help you: attach a .love.

If I hadn't switched to a Blackberry, I certainly would take the time to port LOVE to Windows Mobile. But then again, my next phone is going to be something with Android... so we can all expect an Android port in the future, I suppose.
