Re: LiveCloud databases

Hi Mark, Thanks for clarifying the schemaless option - tbh the data i used is quite structured/well defined and i'll stick with schema. Appli sounds interesting, is there more information on this? Appli is under development. It is an alternative IDE that will sit on top of LiveCode. It is designed ...

Re: LiveCloud databases

Hi Stam, There is no reason to get a Storm plan for your current needs. The main reason to look into the more expensive Storm plan is: You need your data to be on their own VMs You need all the resources for your data You need more control over how the region scales I think your performance issues c...

Re: LiveCloud databases

Hi Simon, We miss seeing you and your active development in the forums. I only wish Digital Ocean had plans to build a data center in Brazil. Building a region with MS Azure is an expensive solution. Their pricing is nowhere near DO. We used Azure to build out our S. Africa region. We were able to d...

Re: LiveCloud databases

Hi Stam, LiveCloud does not provide a relational database at this time. To see where your speed issues may be, load your app in development into LiveCode. Your LiveCloud libraries will allow you to run some commands/functions in the message box. In your message box, type each of these commands one a...

Re: Should I be using Strict Compilation mode ?

Hi Skids, I am happy to elaborate on the value of strict compilation as I see it. Writing code is complicated enough without my fingers wandering around and missing the key I meant to touch. Strict Compilation (SC), is analogous to a spell checker. When I mistype a variable in a given handler, SC wi...

Re: Should I be using Strict Compilation mode ?

My short and apparently unpopular response is yes to strict compilation mode being turned on full time. We have made it a standard setting team wide and have enjoyed less bugs.

Re: Moving Speed out of GPS data

The speed value that comes from mobileSensorReading("location",true) is accurate for meters per second. To get miles per hour, multiply the output by 2.237. To get kilometers per hour, multiply the output by 3.6. I ran this in my car. I found the output to be spot on. But, there is a bit of lag befo...

Re: Read from a Spreadsheet?

This is a general response considering the information presented. Feel free to write back if you want to hone in on these or other ideas. All spreadsheets can do I/O as a CSV. You could import the CSV into LiveCode and parse the data into a dataGrid or field with tab stops. Or, you could import the ...

Re: Analytics with Livecode.

LiveCloud has mentioned something about developing analytics using their own proposal, but I think they stopped development. The subject of this same post goes back to 2011... Hi Trevix, I am one of the developers for LiveCloud. I decided to pop in here and respond since our tracking feature was me...

Re: Permanent ID function (same as FileMaker Pro)

Thank you for going into such detail Mark T., very informative and quite a lot of work to get too. My pleasure. Pssst...i have a secret. Most of this stuff was developed when I was in my 20s. When you are that young, you view the whole world and infinite time is in front of you. At my current age, ...

Re: Permanent ID function (same as FileMaker Pro)

Going back to the original request (which was for some means of validating a user's right to run an app) and obviously what @mtalluto goes to great lengths to do - maybe I'm being slightly naive here, but how does some sort of hardware based unique id offer any better means of validating a user's l...
