Re: MQTT & LiveCode

There is a parallel thread on this subject here:

Should I merge them?

Re: Question marks instead of characters

It sounds like the Unicode isn't being preserved in the read. Can you share the relevant code you're using to read the file and display its contents?

Re: MQTT & LiveCode

I took a gander at the Wikipedia page for the protocol: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/MQTT Lightweight, TCP-based, client-server - definitely doable in LC, though I'm not aware of an existing library for it. Doesn't seem like it would take much to write one, though, given sufficient time and motiv...

Re: IDE In LC Ver 9

I would be interested in seeing if we can determine the root cause of this. If your project can be shared, or you have any example stack file exhibiting the issue, I would welcome the chance to investigate it.

Re: [solved] Bye Livecode

LiveCode appears verbose per-line, but sparse in number of lines needed to accomplish a given task.

Re: IDE In LC Ver 9

If you can select some objects but not others it sounds like the others may have their cantSelect property set to true.

Re: WebSocket connection with a node.js server

I've looked into this, but only briefly. As with HTTP, it's all based on TCP and should be doable in LC, but with a fair amount of work. I would be interested in learning if others have already written a library for this. That said, it seems a limiting choice for the Node package you're using to req...

Re: Array add column with 'days until due'

Arrays do not have rows and columns. If this is working well as delimited text, why does it need to be transformed into an array?

Re: How to Create a Command-Line Tool with LiveCode?

It doesn't seem particularly onerous to have either a script + engine or a standalone with UI when shipping to an audience comfortable with command line execution.

What am I not understanding?

Re: How to Create a Command-Line Tool with LiveCode?

The -ui flag is only needed when using a standalone facelessly from the command line. It is not needed with LiveCode Server.

This blog article describes how to use LC Server outside of web serving, as a more general command-line program:

Re: Date and Time in RFC 3339 format

True, Craig, but being able to use the format with the convert, sort, and other commands would be pretty nice. Mark Waddingham once outlined a proposal to support a wide range of date formats with minimal modifications to the code base. That was many years ago. Don't know what became of that, but it...
