LÖVE automatic distribution script

to any LD love users, here’s a little python script to help with packaging up your games for distribution. it can run on any platform, and it creates a .love file and zips with executables for windows and mac. all you need is the script; it downloads the love binaries and libraries for you. i might add linux support later but packaging for that is a bit tricky and i’ll need to come up with a linux system to test on. it requires python 2.6 or greater. let me know if you find any bugs.

script is here

run with -h for help. here’s a usage example:
python lovedist.py -d felinus/game -n felinus -b com.maxcrane.felinus -N felinus0

i added a mac version of my game FELINUS using this. i also wrote a little strategy guide for anyone who was having trouble figuring it out. find these at the link below. i’m going to write a postmortem for the game soon.

    Thank you very much! I used your script to package my game and it worked great, so now I have Windows and Mac executables: http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/ludum-dare-22/?action=rate&uid=2085 :)
