What is the point of this site?
This site allows you to post data in the Squirrel Scripting Language for your own personal entertainment and educational purposes. You can test your code by installing the Website Integration. Your code is shared with others, and you agree that code you post here is in the public domain.
You should be careful running code from others! Even with the best intentions, others may post code that could be harmful to your system. When you execute a script from this site, you are allowing it to run on YOUR computer. Scripts posted by others are not checked to ensure they are safe. You accept full repsonsibility for your use of this site.
Can I make games or programs for others to play and use?
Technically it is possible to submit scripts and have others run them. But my intentions for this site is that it be a way of sharing code and ideas with other programmers. There is currently nothing preventing someone from creating malicious scripts, and so only those that understand the code and what it will do should be executing scripts from this site.
That said, if you are decent enough with C++. You can download the source and build your script into an executable and do as you wish with it. Note however, that if you link in certain modules, you may be forced to comply with the GPL / LGPL.
Can I use my scripts for commercial purposes?
Sure, I'm not opposed to any commercial use, we all have to eat ;). But keep in mind that this is a side project for me, and I can't gaurantee any level of support.
What OS platforms are supported?
At the moment, I'm only providing installers for Windows. I primarily use the script engine
from Ubuntu Linux, and it works well there, but you will have to build it yourself. That's about
all the time I'll likely have. But just for the record, here are the platforms I've built for
and the status. This also includes the modules, ffmpeg, freetype2, live555, irrlicht, openssl, etc...
Built and tested regularly. Should work out of the box
