This is the development-oriented README. If you're looking to learn how to install and use the template, see MANUAL.MD.
Uranium Template is a Love2D-inspired NotITG game development template, focusing on keeping things as Lua-pure as possible with enough abstractions to make you feel like you're not dealing with Stepmania jank at all.
But you probably already knew that; how do you develop this darn thing?
Installation follows the same steps as the manual installation - extract as a modfile, run as a modfile.
During distribution, there are a couple of files that should be left out:
- This very
README.md- keeping it will be a little confusing, I think!
docs/directory - it's here solely for the logo, and is already included in the template itself.
README.mdat the root of the template - it doesn't serve much purpose outside of a repository.
If you're on Linux or have MSYS2/WSL/similar installed, you can use the distribution script.
Everything related to the core functionality - loading actors, callbacks - goes in
template/main.xml. It's not the most convinient, but I want to eventually move this out to its own Lua file.
Everything related to the standard library should go into
template/stdlib/ - all files there are required by the user, so be mindful of filenames
