LÖVE is an *awesome* framework you can use to make 2D games in Lua. It's free, open-source, and works on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. Documentation ------------- We use our [wiki][wiki] for documentation. If you need further help, feel free to ask on our [forums][forums], and last but not least there's the irc channel [#love on OFTC][irc]. Compilation ----------- ###Windows Follow the instructions at the [megasource][megasource] repository page. ###*nix Run `platform/unix/automagic` from the repository root, then run ./configure and make. $ platform/unix/automagic $ ./configure $ make ###Mac OS X Download the required frameworks from [here][dependencies] and place them in `/Library/Frameworks/`. Then use the Xcode project found at `platform/macosx/love.xcodeproj`. Repository information ---------------------- We use the 'default' branch for development, and therefore it should not be considered stable. Also used is the 'minor' branch, which is used for features in the next minor version and it is not our development target (which would be the next revision - version numbers are formatted major.minor.revision.) We tag all our releases (since we started using mercurial), and have binary downloads available for them. Experimental changes are developed in the separate [love-experiments][love-experiments] repository. Builds ------ Releases are found in the 'downloads' section on bitbucket, are linked on [the site][site], and there's a ppa for ubuntu, [ppa:bartbes/love-stable][stableppa]. There are also unstable/nightly builds: - Most can be found [here][builds]. - For ubuntu linux they are in [ppa:bartbes/love-unstable][unstableppa] - For arch linux there's [love-hg][aur] in the AUR. Dependencies ------------ - SDL2 - OpenGL - OpenAL - Lua / LuaJIT / LLVM-lua - DevIL with MNG and TIFF - FreeType - PhysicsFS - ModPlug - mpg123 - Vorbisfile [site]: [wiki]: [forums]: [irc]: irc:// [dependencies]: [megasource]: [builds]: [stableppa]: [unstableppa]: [aur]: [love-experiments]:
