Sharing this post I wrote up a few days ago for cleaning up my code and reducing token costs:

In summary:

  • Constants would be a very useful language feature to have
  • Pico-8 doesn't have it and doesn't let you extend its preprocessor
  • You can roll your own and it works great

This is cool, thx for sharing!

It's like constexpr since you can do all kinds of stuff in jinja2 like loops and function calls.

I used to minify my stuff but ultimately removed it. Didn't like how it reduced readability so much on the bbs.
