Andre: I think if your chapters offered several ways of organizing a project, starting with beginners, and then discussing the various philosophies, say how to name variables, using Levure, setting up MVC, etc, etc. And you are right to be concerned with how quickly the information gets out of

Thanks for the suggestion, Martin. I will see if that sticks. I knew about Cmd-M once, but I use LC so little, and while I’ve had RR and LC since RR 1.?, I’ve almost only ever done small apps for my own use. Dave > On Feb 17, 2021, at 5:00 AM, Martin Koob via use-livecode > wrote: > > Hi

I found your approach to publish and subscribe incredibly useful. I have an app that has data grids in multiple sub stacks that each can be open or no. Many of these data grids display data from the same database table but in different sub stacks. For example, I have a devices and an

Wasm is a pretty mature target by now. Most of the projects I work with already have deployments using wasm on either the server side or the client side. ASP.NET and Blazer is making quite a stir. It’s not the sort of - let’s deploy it now thing - but when looking at a partnership between

Let me begin by saying that WASM is not a silver bullet. I know this doesn’t happen on our community, and that David is not mentioning WASM as a magical solution for HTML5 deployment. A bit of context is needed to understand why WASM is important and cool. In the past, many C/C++ to Web

Anyone know the wasm plans? I’m Woking on a project in collaboration with a number of other platforms and partners that are using wasm. Would like to play in the same place with LiveCode. ***

Thank you. I think it is an example of a LiveCode built app that uses many (I'd say most) of LiveCode's features all in one application. It was originally built in HyperCard around 1990 with a Windows version in Toolbook and then the Mac version migrated to SuperCard (waiting on the never

This is an excellent idea. Provide the basic skeleton, but then demo a couple completed concepts as well to show what could be done. I would be willing to collaborate to make a finished example and document the process. LiveCode is extremely powerful, but as others have noted some of these

Double [OT], but I just want to say that I have looked at HyperRESEARCH several times over the years, and have been hugely impressed with its features. In fact, it is too feature rich for my needs, but it looks like a really great piece of work. Cheers, David G > On 16 Feb 2021, at 9:43 pm,
