I am currently using Love2D as my game engine of choice and have come across the situation where I have had to retype out similar code over and over. In particular, if I want to add a new color to a project, I copy my old colors.lua file over, and add that new color to it. This can get tedious, and eventually, I may have many different colors that I don't actually need anymore.
So, I am considering making a color palette application, which allows me to visually select the colors I need, then write them to a colors.lua file. I want to make the project open source, so that someone cannot package my application and make money off it. However, I do not care if someone makes money through the use of the application (i.e. the colors.lua file).
Would something as strict as GPL bleed into those files? Do any copyright or copyleft licenses bleed into those files? If yes to both, what copyright/copyleft would allow me to do the above?
