Playdate + template = Playlate

Hey folks!

I was exploring the SDK over the weekend, and I really wished I had a template to start from. The Game Template provided in the SDK was good, but super open-ended. It also didn't have some of the structure that the SDK docs recommended.

What I wanted was something that already had some common, useful code written that I could use to get started. And then eventually become annoyed with and delete. Just like a true template.

So anyway, I made that. And called it Playlate. Please check it out and let me know what you think.



I just released v1.1.0 of the playlate template with some new goodies. This update includes:

  • Extensive VSCode support, including a default build task
  • Support for linting your code with luacheck.
  • Added callbacks for the simulator debug methods.

Check it out!
