Making SB projects from computer?

Root / FAQs / [.]

Hey is there any possibility of some way to code games from a computer instead of having to type it out on the 3DS touch screen? If so, can someone leave a download? Thanks.

Actually, I’m currently working on making a SmileBASIC (Switch version) transcompiler. I don’t know if it will necessarily be as fit for development, because you’ll probably need to run it manually every time you want to test it and because I don’t know how fast it will be at transpiling stuff. But it will let you turn SmileBASIC (Switch) code into a working Lua program (with Love2D framework). I’m nowhere close to done with this so no promises, but I’m working on it and don’t intend to stop.
