hola one and all,
been a while since i have been on here, actually a while since i have used codea, due to using LÖVE2D for some big games. its fun and going well.
one main question i would like to put out for people to hopefully come back with some answers or solutions.
i have been using lua/love2d for a while, and whilst its cool etc, its very light on security of files when you distribute them. im not 100% bothered, but would like an option to protect things, if i want to. there is the ‘luac’ path. but as far, im looking at other options.
but what im more getting onto has not got anything to do with love2d. but more lua, and the coding of it in an IDE, or very much so, sublime text because its awesome.
i have been scouring the web looking for ways to use ‘just’ lua, to code my applications, very much like codea’s xcode template - but i want to do it for both desktop and mobile devices. i guess in the same vain as what ‘openframeworks’ can do to some degree.
now, im just having a bitch of a time just able to ‘find’ something that will help in me just using xcode, or more sublime text to build and launch an application like in the way that codea does it. maybe im not wording it right, but would have thought i could of found something.
but just finding something that will let me use lua in the way i have been on codea to make cool shit has become something of an annoyance.
id rather stick to lua, then maybe put it to other languages. but since lua can actually deal with application building and also for games, i would have figured there would be something to help.
if anyone can help, i would be very happy.
im asking on here, since the majority [i guess] is mac related, and has possibly anked that same question. plus this forum is for lua based antics
but to sum it all up
i want to use xcode/sublime text as my IDE for developing lua games for both desktops and mobile, much like codea [though i know the codea template doesnt do desktops.
