I showed lines.love here a few weeks ago, and I've been mostly fixing bugs since. It might be converging to a fixed point now; no more features, bugs slowing to a trickle, most changes containing a 1-line fix and a dozen lines for a test. Then my hope is that it will continue to work reliably for a while without needing any updates (assuming future versions of https://love2d.org cooperate). To freeze things I need to provide escape hatches. When people ask for new features, provide them either in forks (example) or as separate applications entirely. That way the lines.love codebase stays approachable/hackable/habitable, particularly for people who don't need the additional features. Here's an example of a separate application: an exporter to markdown+SVG: https://codeberg.org/akkartik/lines2md. You can see it in action in this video. There's minimal UI here. I export files by dragging them on the exporter window, and it emits new files in the folder window that I can then open in any markdown application (that can render SVG).

It feels in many ways like the drawing DSL you've embedded in the text is to SVG as markdown is to HTML.
