In an app on the AppStore this is definitely a security risk from Apple’s point of view. Devs could insert any nefarious code into their app. This has been true from iOS2. Only content like video and images, maybe some animation data and so on is deemed ok and encouraged. I was mainly

The only issue with using a field is you are limited to character data presentation only. You can’t put inline images, widgets, checkboxes, etc. For HTML5 deployment I’ve ended up reinventing the wheel with a DataGridV3. I’ve gradually even made it quite generic in code so that it handles

Hi Colin I’ve done a bit of digging and stdio is an api for file IO used in emscripten. It’s also used for accessing external site pages. Additionally, LC uses it to write to the log message box on your main page. So, I’m curious about the method you go through to get to this point of error.
