Seems like a missed opportunity for this to be written in Python, to be honest, but great nonetheless!
And given love is standalone, this probably makes a lot more sense anyway…
Hey apg, this is written in Python as of yesterday morning. Are you seeing something different? Or maybe you ran across the discussion thread on the LÖVE forums?
No. Just my wording is confusing. What I meant is that the obvious language is lua.
Got it, I misread as “missed the opportunity to write it in Python” :P
I might rephrase what you responded with the question, “Why is it written in Python instead of Lua?”, and to answer: I did consider using Lua (and even LÖVE itself) for this CLI, but this is what my decision came down to when making this choice between the two:
That all being said, I’m certainly open to hearing your thoughts around what makes sense, and of course, I welcome any pull requests :)
All of these reasons make sense, and they are the reason that I followed up my ambiguous comment with: “this probably makes a lot more sense anyway…” even though I didn’t clarify. Sorry for writing confusing feedback. :)
