First, let me say how impressed I am with Dialog! It’s taken some effort to wrap my mind around the language concepts (coming from 20+ years of OO programming), but I think I’m getting the hang of it. I’ve not written IF before, mainly because I enjoy Z-machine games but dislike Inform 6/7, so I’ve found Dialog to be quite compelling.
For any Mac users looking to install Dialog using Homebrew, I’ve created a formula for that purpose. Dialog doesn’t (yet) meet the notability requirements for the official repo, but I will submit it there as soon as it does. In the meantime, I’ve created a tap for this purpose and will do my best to keep it updated as new versions are released.
Homebrew users can install the Dialog compiler and debugger (
dgdebug) using this command:
brew install vickio/dialog/dialog-if
Copies of the Dialog standard library and debug library will be installed to this location:
