I need a key binding of: M-x compile then in compile command type like Compile command: love2d /home/huseyin/Documents/Programming/Lua/ I am tired of doing that again and again.


Sure, just add something like this to your init file:

(defun oleg/compile-lua ()
  "use love2d to compile my lua code"
  (compile "love2d /home/huseyin/Documents/Programming/Lua/"))
(global-set-key (kbd "<f5>") #'oleg/compile-lua)

You can name the function whatever you prefer, and bind it to whichever key you like.

  • i want to do the same thing for Lua but in Lua you must write the name of the file, as a file i want the use the name of the current file . Is it possibble? Nov 24 '20 at 15:05
  • @olegharput Usually the variable buffer-file-name gives what you want. So easily you can just do string concat with that.
