Overview

Megasource is a CMake-buildable collection of all LÖVE dependencies.

It currently only works on Windows, but will also work on OSX. It could certainly also work on Linux, but good package managers makes megasource less relevant there.

Prerequisites

  • Windows.
  • Visual Studio 2012 or 2013 (Express).
  • DirectX SDK (required for SDL2).
  • CMake 2.8.11.
  • NSIS if you want to build the LÖVE installer.

Building

To build just the dependecies:

$ hg clone https://bitbucket.org/rude/megasource megasource
$ cd megasource
$ cmake -G "Visual Studio 11" -H. -Bbuild
$ cmake --build build --target megatest --config Release

... or you can of course open the solution file in Visual Studio and build from there instead of invoking cmake --build.

If you want to build LÖVE, clone LÖVE into the libs folder. Megasource will automatically look for it there. E.g.:

$ hg clone https://bitbucket.org/rude/megasource megasource
$ cd megasource
$ hg clone https://bitbucket.org/rude/love libs/love
$ cmake -G "Visual Studio 11" -H. -Bbuild
$ cmake --build build --target love/love --config Release

The binaries can be found in build/love/Release.

If you want to build the installer, replace the previous build command with:

$ cmake --build build --target PACKAGE --config Release

A zip with the binaries and the installer will appear in build.
