pico 8 compiler
A downloadable tool for Windows, macOS, and Linux
This is a proof of concept for a compiler script for the Pico 8 fantasy console
Requires watchdog https://pypi.python.org/pypi/watchdog
python picocompiler.py --folder 'folder for scripts' --output 'valid pico-8 file'
Put lua files inside of the defined folder and a valid p8 file generated from Pico 8. The compiler should allow you to edit your graphics, sounds and maps separately, but it's not two-way and always keep a backup!!!
Just let it run while you edit the files. If the p8 file doesn't generate at first, try saving a .lua file in the designated folder. You should get a confirmation that a file changed in the terminal log.
- Auto-generate p8 file when no valid one is given
- Merge images and sounds inside folder
- Two-way script editing
- Better formatting
- Show char, token, and space counts in compiler
