This extension adds language support for lua files to be used in PICO-8 by lexaloffle.
The PICO-8 fantasy console uses lua with some small changes. This gist by josefnpat covers the differences from Lua 5.2.
By default, PICO-8 code is written directly in the .p8 file produced by the program. However, it is possible to write
this code in regular .lua files and copy it into the .p8 file manually or with a build tool. Here are some good build tools you can use:
pico-build - a very basic build script I wrote that supports PICO-8's built-in editor tabs.
picotool - a collection of tools for manipulating PICO-8 carts. Supports require() which some may prefer over the standard file concatenation approach.
picobu - a simple build tool that supports a watch mode.
