It's been a great model here.

One of my longest-running projects is a content-driven medical decision support system, where the authoring, review, and publishing process is done in an LC standalone, generating web-ready static HTML for lean, scalable deployment.

And now that we have some nice WebDAV libraries, I'm using that same model for my own content management, with Nextcloud as a collaborative document store managed through a dedicated desktop standalone made in LC.

Along the way I'm seeing opportunities to use APIs from Nextcloud apps and other cloud services to build out standalones providing highly-integrated workflows across disparate services, tailored for the specific needs of just about any organization with all the ease that developing GUIs in LiveCode can provide.
