Contact Library for Address Book on MacOS

2021-05-09 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
I’m looking to create an address book on MacOS and mobile and I see that there 
is no built in functionality on desktop. I’ve used AppleScript before for this 
- but a long time ago. Is there a library hanging around for this for MacOS or 
Windows?

Rust

2021-04-28 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
I need to interface with an open-source project that is being ported to rust 
(from C++). I would like to make an extensions library to add new syntax to my 
scripts.

Is the way to go to create some C code that interfaces with rust - 
https://docs.rust-embedded.org/book/interoperability/rust-with-c.html

Or?

Re: On the dangers of automated refactoring

2021-04-13 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
Hence the value of crowd-funding a version of the LiveCode language for the 
Graalvm.

I spend a great deal of my time in LiveCode refactoring and renaming handlers. 
I’ve done this not so much because it is useful to my productivity, but because 
I see a method in the madness of spaghetti code that is worth exploring with 
the tools of collaborative authoring. I’d be interested to understand the 
nature of the gazillion stack project to see how it compares to my gazillion 
stack project (and I presume others). We could learn things by comparing 
approaches.

Re: Wasm and the LC Roadmap

2021-02-17 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
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 several institutions 
each with their own projects - wasm provides a relatively solid basis fir 
glueing the pieces together - regardless (more or less) of the language if 
choice of the collaborator.

Wasm and the LC Roadmap

2021-02-17 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
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.

Re: installing and running LC on 'headless' linux server

2021-01-31 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
Mark that is interesting. I would like to something similar during the Learning 
Cohort coding sprint over the next 12 weeks.

I’d be happy to write up documentation and create a community GitHub project 
around that approach including Nginx config etc?

Re: Threads in LC

2021-01-08 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
I would find it very helpful if we would share some code in this “thread” about 
threads?

At the moment I have a need to break up a heavy indexing task on a LiveCode 
server into a series of smaller steps that execute asynchronously.

The web server receives a webhook  notifying it that there is some new data 
that needs indexing, and should reply immediately notifying receipt of the 
webhook.

This is one of the “easy” cases Bob was referring too I think. But I’m not sure 
until I see and can test the code what the right approach is. Approaches could 
be:

1) In LiveCode server return “put” a response the after use wait / send in time 
to do indexing. Does this work and not lockup the server?

2) Schedule cron jobs with LiveCode

3) Use shell commands such as “at” to schedule a task at a future time.

4) Use tools that can manage spawning of LiveCode server pseudo-threads

While this example might be server centric, I suspect that many of the 
principles carry over to the desktop and it is the most common use case for a 
need for “threads”

The server return 400 Not Found when routing for a *.json file, while 200 OK 
when routing for a *.txt file - all other conditions seem the same.

If I replace “json” with “json” or “xyz” or any arbitrary txt in the 
(Revigniter) routing everything works as expected. The .htaccess in the 
$DOCUMENT_ROOT folder does not mention json file endings.

I suspect there is another file somewhere doing the Apache based redirect?

Yes

Livecode server configuration: tracking down and Apache redirect

2020-12-18 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
I have a Livecode server running Revigniter under Apache on Ubuntu. I installed 
it 8 years ago or so, and it is causing redirect problems with files ending in 
.json. I am assuming that a long time ago a set the configuration somewhere to 
handle .json files in a particular way, but I can’t track this down. Any 
thoughts where to look?

I’ve tried the following places so far: .htaccess and 
/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default.conf  which do their job - but no 
mention of .json files.

I’m wondering if there is some sort of log that would allow me to know how 
Apache is handling a faulty redirect? I’m a bit stuck tracking it down.

Basic question: Time Zone Library

2020-11-06 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
Just created a handler that I want to use in a Livecode server that uses the 
Time Zone Library handler TimeZones(). So:

1. How do I find where the library is?
2. How do I add it so the server code can use it?

Re: mergeJSON on server problem

Thanks Mark - I may give fastjson a go.

I tracked down the problem to the "\u00a0” unicode character in the json I 
fetched, which was causing mergeJSON to fail. This hack fixed the issue in a 
temporary way.
replace "\u00a0” with empty in episodeJson -- hack to remove "¬"

Any thoughts on safe encoding of data I fetch fro jsonrpc calls so that it 
plays nicely with Livecode?

mergeJSON on server problem

2020-10-31 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
I use mergeJSON to move back an forth between json and arrays for web services. 
It’s currently failing when I fetch json data from another source on the Ubuntu 
server, while the same code and data works on MacoS - presumably due to some 
encoding issues.

It’s a large amount of data and I can’t debug where the issue is easily. Maybe 
I can use jsonImport/Export on the server? Not sure. Any thoughts?

Re: Livecode Podcast Player - earbud click?

2020-10-23 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
Checking the interaction between earbud clicks (trying two different types of 
earbud) and Livecode - no "appleEvent" message is sent to Livecode. I wonder 
how this interaction works across different apps? Trying on desktop at the 
moment.

So seems like the browser widget is the only way to go. Will test on mobile. 
Anyone have an idea how events are sent to apps from earbuds?

Livecode Podcast Player - earbud click?

2020-10-23 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
Yes. I have some old code - seems to still work fetching and parsing RSS 
steams. I’m looking into the best way. To make the player now - browser or 
player widget?

An interesting experiment this morning with earbuds - if I play an mp3 or a 
video in the player object and listen to the sound through the earbuds - 
pressing / clicking the earbuds has no effect on the playback. Using the 
machinery of the browser widget pauses and restarts the playback reliably. I 
want. This feature so I may well choose the browser widget unless I can figure 
out a message that is sent to the. Stack that I can trap?

The issue is that I want to know the “currenttime” when the video is paused - 
this and other features would be easier using the player control. I guess I can 
use javascript if needed?

I think that is right yes. I’m trying to put into words why many people don’t 
do that, or help fix the documentation. I feel that the reasons people don’t do 
that is understandable and somewhat fixable.

That’s fine :) It’s kind of related to the general subject of community 
contribution. My understanding is that the general approach to that has not 
helped produce an organised collection of material - whether this is the 
documentation, or the library of Livecode components. There is the usual 
tension between centralised quality control and wiki like easy open community 
contribution.

I agree with Sean that we can all contribute to this, but a little improvement 
in the architecture that supports such collaboration would also help I believe. 
It is harder than I think necessary to find stacks and code related to for 
instance podcasts and RSS feeds. I’m pretty sure that this has been worked on 
multiple times over the last 10 years, but the combination of forum, email, and 
resource library does not do justice to what we could achieve.

Maybe I’m wrong - and no one has produced a podcast player in Livecode? My 
understanding is that an easy to contribute set of tools that made it easier to 
share stacks and code would help here. As I see it the attempts that have been 
made historically have been somewhat too “closed” for there to the right sort 
of community contribution.

I can mainly speak for my personal experience, but if I produce this podcast 
player, and various libraries for it - then historically I haven't really see a 
good way to share that. When I come across errors or improvements I want to 
make to the dictionary I don’t really see how, or have quite enough faith that 
my contributions will valued - so I make a note to “do that later” and well - 
don’t.

There is a form of federated architecture for user contributions that looks 
promising that can help. Essentially the trick is to combine both that ability 
of people to make their own personal notes / changes and contributions by 
forking existing material, while also making it very easy to combine these 
contributions into an editorial synopsis. That way each Livecode author wold 
have a tool for their own personal productivity use, and the overall community 
gets the value of the shared content production. Right now the balance between 
my personal space and the sharing is in an unhealthy state of mediation.

Datagrid question - variable row templates

2020-10-15 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
It’s been a while since I used data grids - so I’m wondering if there are any 
new aspects / tricks here that I’m missing.

Requirements
I need a data grid like object to display json data / an array, in which each 
item has a type. So type image or type text etc. Each type should be displayed 
by a different equivalent of a row template.

As far as I know the data grid can’t really do this. I’ve hacked it before by 
creating a row template that has the ability to transfer itself - but this is 
quite a hack and I expect will be too slow for mobile.

Solutions sought?
My thought is that I have to create my. Own. Custom datagrid like group - which 
is naturally quite a lot of work. Any suggestions?

Is this a bug?

2020-10-13 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
Does anyone else have this behaviour in MacOs? Note I have no plugins installed 
or loaded in the demo. The same behaviour happens on different laptops.

Sure Mark. This week I’m doing a sprint on this topic - finishing on Sunday. As 
part of that work I’ll be recording more videos in Livecode and will post them 
next week together with some documentation. If you want a quick touch base 
before that I’d be happy to do a Zoom and do a show / tell.

Re: Bug: jumping stack windows (when supress messages is off)

2020-10-11 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
Hi Bernd, the bug is not to do with the standard window snap. This is 
unresponsive try to any mouse clicks and a big jump across half the screen 
without any other windows present. Check the video to see.

Re: Bug: jumping stack windows (when supress messages is off)

2020-10-09 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
I’m getting pretty curious about this bug :)

Testing  mouse clicks- and not stacks jumping position when moving their 
location - I find that a stack that is successfully moved between the four 
quadrants of the screen - accepts mouse clicks accurately in the bottom-left, 
top-right and bottom right quadrants - but in the top-eft quadrant the 
mouse-click interactions are offset vertically in a way that is compatible with 
the stack jump. So if you manage to locate the. Stack without it jumping - in 
the top-left quadrant the mouse clicks are off.

Monitor settings are set for default value of the MacBook Pro display. I think 
I’ll make a short video of this behaviour.

Bug: jumping stack windows (when supress messages is off)

2020-10-09 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode

Windows intermittently jump to a location on the screen when I move windows. 
It’s got too annoying to ignore.

• Is anyone else having this problem?

I am testing this on Mojave and Livecode 9.6.1 rc2. I am testing this without 
any of my own code such just was IDE stacks. This I “think” is quite a long 
standing bug that I suspect is related to the global coordinate system as I 
have been working around this for quite a while now.


Detail
The location of the jump seems to be the same horizontal x location. But with 
the vertical value being reset to the halfway point.

I am testing by. Simply moving the message box. It is intermittent - so 
occurring about once every 5 moves, and strangely is happening only when the 
top left of the stack window is within the top left quadrant of the screen. 
Using. The following code int eh message box I find the top of the message box 
stack is always 492 after a jump (see below). This appears to be related to 
half the screen less the decorations like menu?
put the screenrect & CR & the rect of stack” Message box"

0,0,1680,1050
215,492,634,640

As a further indication that the problem is due to the IDE, I find that 
creating a test stack (no scripts or controls) exhibits the same behaviour - 
but this behaviour can be suppressed by choosing “Suppress Messages” from the 
“Development” menu. This suppression has no effect on the message box or other 
IDE windows which still jump intermittently.

The problem is most intense when working with multiple screens. For at least a 
couple of years stacks I create and place on second or third monitors receive 
mouse clicks in the wrong location. This happens on different machines, and 
different. Monitor setups. Only tested on Macs.

I am currently creating a multiscreen app - so taking the tracking down. Of 
this bug more seriously. The current tests are one on my laptop without 
external monitors, and having restarted the computer (several times). 
Applications other than Livecode don’t suffer this problem.

How should I report this bug - should I submit a video / screen recording?

Livecode and GPU's

2020-09-12 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
Thanks Jim - works a treat. Didn’t think this one would be possible.

I can now use this technique to layer elements over things such as the browser 
widget, of player object when playing streaming video. It’s relatively fast so 
for instance typing text in the field and exporting a snapshot with each letter 
types works acceptably.

Graphic processing of live video layers
Out of interest why does live streaming video to a player object or other tools 
(camera control or browser widget) draw directly to the screen? I understand 
this will be faster, but with modern gpu’s other applications do amazing 
things. Does anyone know if this is a complex thing to do in terms of coding - 
or is it just a choice made by developers thinking that layering of things like 
video is not something many people want to do?

Livecode and GPU's
I’ve noticed in these tests that Livecode is not using any GPU’s for doing 
these complex graphic tasks. I have Activity Monitor open and a couple of CPU 
cores are being used but none of the GPU’s. I’m wondering if this is an issue 
for speed, and what is involved with taking advantage of the capabilities of 
GPU’s in the code we write?

Re: Possible : stack with transparent backgound?

Yes. Not sure but I think this will nuke all the other layers - I’m hoping that 
an ink on an object can prevent this from being transparent as well. I don’t 
think that is possible/

Possible : stack with transparent backgound?

2020-09-10 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
Id like to create a stack  - has to be a stack - and for the text and some 
other elements to be visible but the stack background to be transparent - is 
this possible with some combination of inks and masks and blend levels?

Looping though a numerically indexed array

2020-09-02 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
I’m pretty sure there must be a way to efficiently loop through numerically 
indexed arrays

Repeat for each key and repeat for each element does not seem to sort the keys 
in numeric order,. Of course I can get the keys and sort them before repeating 
- but is there a more efficient way?

System Window Mask Stack (Keyhole effect for stack with Windowshape)

2020-07-31 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
I’m trying to create a stack which I place in front of stacks which contain 
browser objects and camera controls in order to mask them and create more 
interesting shapes for the video and browser content. The only way to do this I 
believe is to have a stack - let’s call it a “System Window Mask” stack - and 
punch holes though it. A stack level keyhole effect.

Scott if you are there I need your help :)

This stack of Scotts shows the result:

• go url "http://www.tactilemedia.com/download/animated_mask.livecode;

And I’d like a way to generate those masks from graphic objects that I place on 
the “System Window Mask” stack - then export a snapshot - my experiments so far 
are failing.

I can get a polygon to make the stack with code like this:

• export snapshot from graphicObject with effects to img”mask” of me as PNG
• set the windowshape of stack stackName to imageID

But I’d like to reverse the effect - so I get a hole in the shape of the 
graphic. Code like this:

-- set the ink of graphicObject to "blendDstIn"
-- set the ink of myGroup to "blendSrcOver"

Before taking the snapshot is not cutting it?

Re: Livecode Community Site

2020-07-08 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
Yes - I’m in. My only requirements are that it is done well. Like others have 
said time is limited, so for my part I only want to put effort into quality and 
innovative content. Let me pick through the suggestions from my point of view:

> > Please give me a quick reply

Yes, yes, yes.

I’m personally confident of interest. This is in part because I know some 
interesting developers, and relevant content. Partly because I’m confident that 
the format can be done in a way that gathers interest. These positive aspects 
come with a potential difference of approach - one which puts content and cross 
cutting interests over an above a pure Livecode focussed site (see below)
> > Here are my goals:
> >
> > For LoveLivecode.com to be a "modern" central hub for:

For my part that brand is not strong enough to attract interest. I also see 
several sites working together in a modern way - to that end I believe we 
should allow anyone to create their own community site and federate these in 
interesting ways.
> Not sure what 'modern' is (or whether I like it :-)  And central could
> mean 'one place for everything' which I think is not practical.

I agree 'one place for everything’  is not practical. My focus would be on ways 
in which federated sites can share content. So I see:

1. A podcast - that uses Livecode to add some interesting features, but 
essentially is something that any Livecode community site can embed and 
collaborate with.
2. A new container based community hosting solution - the solution I’d love to 
work on with people uses Traffic, Federated wiki, and Livecode server. Other 
container based services can be added with a few lines of code. I have a test 
community server up and running - and I think it would be good content to 
evolve that through the podcast and community meet-ups.
3. Exciting community content - new approaches to education etc (my focus is 
climate change and social projects).


> > (Up-to-date) Educational resources
> Yeah, could be possible.

There are a number of projects I’d like to include here. There is a good deal 
of innovative content to draw on, that we can enhance with features provided by 
Livecode tools. It’s all creative commons licensed, and would go with the 
podcast which will also be free culture licensed.

I’ve got a few libraries for this, and we could go through what is available in 
a community call. At the moment I use Gists, and Github API’s to save code 
snippets and projects from the IDE, and I use Federated wiki to document the 
handlers and code - however we could use Github wiki pages or other solutions. 
Again something better to demo in a community call than describe.

How about doing a Zoom next week, and see where it goes. I’d be happy to 
present the docker based federated Livecode instance - with a quick demo of 
Github & wiki integration?

Re: LiveCode Zoom

I’m thinking it would be nice to support Livecode Ltd a bit at this time of 
pandemic, and as I’m working full time on creating interesting community 
building experiences using Zoom and related platforms - I thought the best 
thing I could do to help would be to apply these to building interest and 
community around Livecode.

Yes - can use my paid for Zoom account and I’ve played with the Zoom API in 
Livecode though like you point out that’s not so important. So just doing an 
interesting fun weekly Zoom call would be the starter for one.

I think what would be interesting would be to build some data visualisation 
tools that feedback into the Zoom conversation more interesting visualisations 
that you are able to get with native Zoom tools. So we create some Livecode app 
that can chat with each other to share data, and I can pipe a realtime image of 
a Livecode stack back into the Zoom.  So I imagine a realtime coding experience 
in which the resulting visualisations would be made available live to Zoom 
viewers.

I see this as Livecoders showing off what they can do to a non-Livecode 
audience - that way we can have interesting conversations about subjects of 
interest that could do with a bit of Livecode software magic to make the 
discussions more interactive. That way we can extend the audience to 
non-programmers while having some fun ourselves coding on stuff.

LiveCode Zoom

2020-07-03 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
I’d like to host / take part in a weekly Zoom with other Livecoders. I started 
the Livecode TV thing ages ago now, and this time I think we can do something 
more interesting - but what?

I take part in a couple of regular Zoom gatherings around open source projects 
for a few years now, and It seems a pity not to do it with LiveCode.

I’m thinking of it as a regular drop in, and to integrate LiveCode into how the 
event works. Just not quite sure how. Thing out loud here :)

Here is a short video of a really nice ball animation of the Earth’s Carbon 
Cycle - which is the sort of thing I’d like to make a series of animations / 
interactive simulations about. There a re a few more than 30-40 moving balls 
here - but they are more or less dots….

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwVsD9CiokY

I wonder how many particles can be animated like this in Livecode...

iOS sharing extensions: an important market for Livecode?

2020-06-28 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
Not sure what people think, but for my part one of the main itches I have for 
creating mobile apps in Livecode is to figure out more advanced ways of 
processing data that is generated by all those mobile apps I have installed on 
my phone. So I REALLY want tone able to share from podcast apps, and browsers, 
and note / project management apps to a Livecode app I create on my mobile - 
get Livecode to  massage the data then save it somewhere useful.

But first I need to create that sharing extension - a test case would be to 
share a browser url from Chrome or Safari. Any ideas what I’m doing wrong?

Re: Quick question: player object callbacks still working?

2020-06-28 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
The message is not being sent. I set the callbacks of the payer and test it 
with:
set the callbacks of player 1 to "0,soundNotes"

command soundNotes
  — does not get sent
  put the params
end soundNotes

on currentTimeChanged theInterval
  put theInterval
end currentTimeChanged

on playPaused
  put the currenttime of me
endplayPaused

As I understand it the callback timing should be in “intervals"

• The duration of player 1= 4665600
• The  timescale of player 1 = 9

Setting the callbacks to a range of values between 0 and the duration seems to 
have no effect with regard to messages actually being sent. I’ve tried putting 
the “soundNotes” handler in various positions - card, stack and player. Still 
debugging...

Animation Engine: speed tips

2020-06-27 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
I made a quick test - creating and animating small graphic circles along a 
complex curve with many points. It works fine with one or two animated spheres 
but I’d like to be able to animate >30 and it slows to a crawl after 4 or 5. I 
tried setting the layer mode appropriately for all the objects - but I’m doing 
this on a new MacBook Pro - and it does not make a difference.

Does anyone have an example stack with multiple animated objects that I can 
compare / test for speed?

Re: iOS sharing extension

Having another go at creating an iOS Share extension in Livecode.

Ben I had a go with the code snippets you supplied, but I’m not getting my app 
appearing in the list of apps available to share. I had a bit of a goose around 
and tried a bunch of options for the info.plist file without result - well in 
fact I’m getting the app launching with a black screen and then crashing if I 
use the following style recipe:
NSExtension
 
 NSExtensionAttributes
 
 NSExtensionActivationRule
 TRUEPREDICATE
 
 NSExtensionMainStoryboard
 MainInterface
 NSExtensionPointIdentifier
 com.apple.share-services
 

This type of plist addition:
CFBundleDocumentTypes


CFBundleTypeName
Sound Garden
CFBundleTypeRole
Editor
LSItemContentTypes

public.plain-text

LSHandlerRank
Alternate


CFBundleTypeName
Audio
CFBundleTypeRole
Editor
LSItemContentTypes

public.audio

LSHandlerRank
Alternate



Does not crash the app - but appears to do nothing? The following lesson 
appears related - 
http://lessons.livecode.com/m/4069/l/1069016-associating-a-file-type-file-extension-with-an-lc-ios-app
 and I note there are / were issues with iPhone X and this lesson.

My basic question is how do I get an iOS app to work with as an iOS sharing 
extension such that in any app (say a web browser) where I select the share 
icon I can use my Livecode app as something that handles the share?

Help with HTML5 Livecode Site

2020-05-15 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
I would like to create a beautiful HTML5 Livecode based community site. The 
best examples I’ve found are by hh here on the list. I’m really looking to 
build on those great resources and work with some artists to make something 
neat.

Can anyone advise how to do lazy loading of the engine, and responsive design 
for mobile and desktop?

I would like to present a loading screen which we design to look great, and 
takes enough time to load the engine in the background.

When it is fully downloaded I’d like to show navigation elements that allow the 
reader to enter the Livecode HTML5 Playground.

I kind of know how to do this (in theory) but looking for some code examples 
Demi’s I can customise.

Re: HTML Platform

2020-05-06 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
WASM support is very important to Livecode future. It will address most of the 
problems of current HTML5 deployment, and I definitely intend to use it - for 
micro service deployment, and blockchain integration for instance.

It will doubtless be a commercial feature, which is also important for a 
Livecode feature but as soon as I can play in an equal footing as other high 
level languages - then I can build commercial solutions with project partners 
and universities. Until then I can only really prototype in Livecode.

Re: Group resizing.

2020-05-04 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
Trying to understand this thread. I’ve been doing nested group resizing for all 
my work now for several years - it has been difficult often to debug track 
errors because of all the nested messages.

As a result I’ve had to make a bunch of tools to test each nested element 
before they are combined, and also I’ve developed a consistent style of doing 
it - which may mean that I’m not coming across the issue you report.

My suggestion Alex is the only way to explore this is to jump into a Zoom where 
we can share practice and see visually the issue? It would also be more fun at 
this time if lock down?

Feel free to pick a time if that appeals - I got nothing better to do :)

Google Drive or Dropbox integration

2020-04-29 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
I’m looking to create some tools to automate / augment the work of volunteers 
working on the Sound Garden media archive we created for the radio station.

I want to create desktop and mobile apps I can distribute to volunteers as the 
project moves forwards.

At this early stage we have both Dropbox and Google drive storage - and I’m 
looking for the apps to integrate into the workflow ie read and write to the 
archive.

I’m wondering if anyone has experience with the Livecode libraries that do this 
- which is easier to code against for mobile and desktop? Anyone got a demo 
stack?

Re: Apps to fight COVID-19

2020-04-22 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
Yes - we launched the radio station collecting sounds and voices from round
the world on Earth Day, it is live now with sounds being added to the piece
as it comes in. Radio player on this page:

   - https://www.nowwhat2020.com/sonic-spring-sound-garden

To listen live. It's an ambient musical slow jam - start of a project
leading to a conference we will be organising for Earth Day next year.

As part of the event we are also doing an open space meeting (in Zoom -
sorry about that - last one hopefully before we move to our own platform).
We're doing it on Patterns of Life - where we discuss Pattern Language and
it's relation to the origins of Wiki with Ward Cunningham, and to the
future information architecture we need. It's an open space with breakouts
so you can bring your own topics and discuss them with others in small
groups:

   - Patterns of Nature -
   https://teamup.com/event/show/id/eNTEPffjchtYe3RYbzHjCXQy7ePrzr
   - Full calendar of events - https://teamup.com/ks3bcytpjd2v8bus7k
   - Zoom - https://zoom.us/j/92153676576 (20:00 London Time - see calendar

Best wished on Earth Day,

Re: Simple 3D animation question

2020-04-19 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
Thanks for all the input - threeJS is great. I’ll take your advice on that. I 
haven’t updated my knowledge on it for a couple of years.

FYI - a reason for using Livecode exists outside of the actual animation. It’s 
the educational aspect and geometry. Would like to be able to explore the 
language and coding as a learning experience as a follow up in Livecode rather 
than JavaScript.

Re: Simple 3D animation question

2020-04-18 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
Thanks Rick - yes an icosahedrons wireframe is quite minimal. No opacity or 
shading needed at this stage. Livecode animation of the graphic object is 
certainly fast enough. It’s acceptable smooth enough - though not ideal due to 
lack of antialiasing (I think).

I could look around for some existing Javascriot based examples and look to 
control them through do as Javascriot calls to the browser widget - but I’d 
prefer more control over layering and blend modes.

Animation engine had some simple examples. I’m not sure about anything else?

Re: Apps to fight COVID-19

2020-04-18 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
The app looks a good start, but basic. I took a closer look at the cartoon 
images, they are quite specific, but a good base for a discussion about privacy 
issues. Not so good for an app.

My suggestion regarding taking this forwards is that we have a creative 
workshop on Earth Day this coming Weds, as part of an in-line in conference 
that we are organising with a few folk. There will be plenty of other thing to 
drop into. I’ll send some info to this list on Sunday.

It’s pretty informal, so we can organise our own breakout open space meeting 
when we like - so it should be no issue organising a Livecode workshop on 
making a CORVID-19 app.

My focus is on doing an interactive sound piece and helping convene some if the 
breakout discussions, but doing a workshop on Livecode would be a fun part of 
that.

I could do with some help though :)

Simple 3D animation question

2020-04-18 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
For Earth Day this Wendesday a few of us are working on an art piece that I 
want to use Livecode for.

As part of this event I need to create an interactive presentation and wish to 
create an icosahedrons - so a 3 dimensional hexagon - that I need to rotate in 
different dimensions.

I have seen and experimented with a few examples in the past in Livecode. It 
only needs to be a wireframe animation using the built in graphics object fir 
now.

 Doors anyone have any tips / suggestions?

Re: Apps to fight COVID-19

2020-04-11 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
Personally - especially after reading the links below on Apple + Googles 
initiative - I’d go for story telling based around the comic in an app that we 
could add contact tracing functionality too. I think emphasising in the story 
telling privacy issues would be something that would be an important aspect and 
a strong point with regard to adding to the mix - rather than duplicating 
efforts by other groups?

Re: Apps to fight COVID-19

2020-04-10 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
Thanks for all the info Dar - that’s a great start.

I think creating a hospital / care-worker privacy respecting contact tracing 
app would be a great Livecode project.

This is what I’m thinking:

• Some of gather some material / research - maybe a few Livecode experiments 
not he topic
• We prepare a video conference call - like the Livecode Zoom one I missed
• We invite a few people
• We follow up the video conference with a week long online sprint - some 
coding, some writing, some design / cartoons
• We showcase the results at a wrap up event

I’m working with a handful of volunteers - mainly on the video / media / Zoom / 
research / facilitation end of things, but we’re getting pretty good at 
organising small and larger scale interactive video conferences and editing 
together the footage for feedback documentation. Mostly Livecode novices but 
interested to learn. So we could set up the event - most probably in Zoom - but 
could be Jitsi.

To make it work, I think we’d need a few Livecode tutors, and interest from the 
community - in the end it should be something that the folks on this list would 
like to take part in, so when we onboard other people the party is not empty.

I’d propose we do this on Earth Day - Wednesday 22nd April - in the evening 
Europe time, after midday US time.

Any thoughts / takers?

QR Code Reader with Livecode

2019-08-11 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
I see there is a QR Code Library and with Indy you can call things
like mergAVCamBarcodeFound
- but playing around i can't seem to read a QR code using the AV Foundation
stuff in Indy - is there a way to have a Livecode app read QR codes?

Polyglot and CodeRunner

2019-08-02 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
Does anyone combine Livecode with different programming languages - would
be interesting to share any experiences. I mainly create wrappers for
command line tools in Livecode. Sometimes interface with Javascript which I
want to improve my workflow with.

I was thinking of of extending the way I work with command line tools -
then saw how https://coderunnerapp.com/ does it - so thought I'd see if we
can get Livecode to work with CodeRunner first - has anyone done this?


*How can I add my own languages to CodeRunner?*CodeRunner's run system is
based on simple terminal commands, and therefore if you know the terminal
commands involved in running/compiling code in your language, you can
easily add it to CodeRunner. To add languages, go to Preferences ->
Languages, and click the "+" button. In the "Run Command" text box, enter
the command you use to run the language from the terminal. E.g. if the
interpreter is called mylang, you would enter mylang $filename here.

If your language uses several commands to run, you can use a CodeRunner
compile script. Check the box "Language uses compile script" and click the
"Edit Script..." button. This will open the compile script in the
CodeRunner editor. The script will contain a further explanation of how to
use it.

Re: Challenge: who can background this shell command?

2019-08-01 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
OK - I managed to get it to work with:

   - open process "/usr/local/bin/hugo server" for read

which I did not think would work due to the two word shell command.

Timing was an issue - so I had to use the method found here (thanks Mark) -
https://github.com/livecode/livecode/blob/develop/builder/installer_utilities.livecodescript
-
which uses a send in 20 milliseconds when there is a timeout. basically it
is complex timing logic, but more direct and probably robust than using a
bunch of shell commands we put into the background. Still we have tow
methods that work - restores my faith in the flexibility of Livecode!

Re: Challenge: who can background this shell command?

2019-08-01 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
OK - so I have it working by writing to a temporary file.

Trying to redirect the output to stdout - so that shell() return the
information of the background process - but this freezes:


   - *put* shell ("hugo server 2>&1 &") into launchResult

Even though:


   - command 2>&1 &

redirects stderr to stdout?

This is a working solution which writes to a temporary file - then reads
from that file till the end of the message in order to get hold of the
result:

That works in the message box - thanks Matthias.

The only thing is I can't (yet) tell what port the server is running on - I
can see from the terminal (using pgrep) the process id of the started
server - but it does not appear to be serving correctly on the default
server port...

Do you think there is a way to redirect the output to Livecode's result or
it variable - I seem to remember that there have been some changes to that
to make such a construction possible in Livecode - alternatively maybe the
output can be directed to a temporary file instead of " /dev/null"???

Nearly there :)

Challenge: who can background this shell command?

2019-08-01 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
The challenge is to figure out a technique we can use in Livecode to be
able to call long running shell processes (typically something like an http
server process) without blocking Livecode.

To test this without asking anyone to install some cli I thought we could
try it with an existing long running process that everyone should have in
their terminal - vi

So how do you:

*put* shell ("vi")

I've tested this and it does not crash here on latest OSX. You do have to
type command-period a few times to unblock things - but it is more or less
safe to try in the message box.

I've also tried:

*put* shell ("vi &")

The aim is to out the process in the background, or some other technique -
like make a bash script that contains the line that launches vi (ie "vi") -
or perhaps uses screen or tmux, or some trick in Livecode (open process
does not work for this on OSX)...

Who can crack this tricky nut :)

Re: Launching a cli server as background process in OSX

2019-08-01 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
Thanks everyone - Mark - it's not an issue with accessing hugo from shell -
get shell ("hugo server") works fine - it just blocks as the server process
keeps running as it should do - so I want to background it.

Richard - yes I've tried that. In fact I tried all these different
techniques to the best of my ability:

   - *put shell ("hugo server")*
   - *put shell ("hugo server &")*
   - *get shell ("nohup hugo server >&/dev/null")*
   - *get shell ("screen hugo server")*

*I've tried various combinations of this in a bash script:*

#!/bin/bash
> hugo server
> wait
> echo "All processes done!"


   - *get shell ("bash bg_hugo_server.sh")*
   - *open* process "bash bg_hugo_server.sh"
   - *launch "bg_hugo_server.sh"*

It's something over the years I've had a go at several times. Always
assumed there would be some way of doing it - so I spent half a day trying
to no joy. I guess the question comes down to:


   - How do you nackground a persistant shell process in Livecode on OSX
   (and other platforms)?


I'll try and get a simple test scenario...

Re: Launching a cli server as background process in OSX

Thanks Francois - but this is not the issue as the shell function works in
that the server is launched via:

*put shell ("hugo server")*


The issue is that as the shell command runs until you forcibly exit - the
Livecode handler freezes and no other scripts or user actions can run - so
I want to run the server in the background.
See thee links for tutorials that I've looked into for how to run bash
scrips in the background:

Re: Launching a cli server as background process in OSX

2019-07-31 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
Hi Matthias - no open process does not work for OSX unix processes:

*Note:* On OS X systems, you can use the open process command to start up
an application, but not a Unix process. To work with a Unix process, use
the shell func instead.


These are all the things I've tried:


   - *put shell ("hugo server")*
   - *get shell ("nohup hugo server >&/dev/null")*
   - *get shell ("screen hugo server")*

*I've tried various combinations of this in a bash script:*

#!/bin/bash
> hugo server
> wait
> echo "All processes done!"



   - *get shell ("bash bg_hugo_server.sh")*
   - *open* process "bash bg_hugo_server.sh"
   - *launch "bg_hugo_server.sh"*

I can't get any of them to work. I tried them with versions that use
Livecodes send in time - but still no joy. Pretty sure some combination of
bash and Livecode should work - but it's not easy - any ideas?

Launching a cli server as background process in OSX

2019-07-31 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
I have a server that I would like launch from Livecode. I've tried shell(),
launch, open process, and then creatign bash scripts ending with "&" or
using screen... no joy so far...

In the terminal I run:

hugo server

and a little go server runs and does it's magic. But try as I can nothing I
do let's me launch the server from Livecode - without the script waiting
for the never ending process to end and interface freezing.

Was about to launch into the world of tmux, or trying Applescript :( Any
ideas?

Hi - sorry for the abbreviation - I am actually passing a full object
reference "the long id of the target" - either way it should not crash :)

Re: Bud: crash with widget popup

Try this:

*popup widget "footer"*

Crashes at least with widgets of type widget.paletteActions - not tried to
crash things with other widget types.

Bud: crash with widget popup

2019-03-30 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
Not sure where to report GitHub issue? Being lazy and reporting here:

Calling popup with a widget as a reference rather than a button results in
a crash.

Re: Levure Dataview Question

2019-03-30 Thread David Bovill via use-livecode
Yes would be good to know. I've seen demos of drag- reordering, and
scripted a few experiments - but seeing that work on mobile for something
as visually complex as a data grid (or Levure dataview) I've no seen.

My suspicion is that that sort of visual drag drop animated feedback is
best done in HTML. But with the steady progress in accelerated rendering
and widgets perhaps it is possible to acheive the same level of quality
using native Livecode. Would be good to see a demo
