Re: Creating forum/comment web pages using Livecode

Worth considering when building out any server: aside from large databases of credit card info, almost no one has any data any hacker wants. But they do want do hack your site. Why? They don't want your data. They want your computer resources. Sometimes for mining Bitcoin. Sometimes for installing s...

Re: How to store an array in

Does the output have to be XML? That's quite doable, but to explore the full range of options it would be helpful to know what programs will be consuming the data.

Re: Meeting: Dec 6, Pasadena

Since I last wrote I've been in talks with a producer who works closely with several networks. He believes a reality TV format would be a big hit. He proposed the title "Real LiveCoders of Pasadena", where we actually live in the restaurant and form alliances among ourselves over variable naming con...

Re: Creating forum/comment web pages using Livecode

Didn't mean to scare you away from the task; it can be a fun exercise. But if you need to deploy on a deadline there is indeed a lot to learn. Going with a third party solution will save you a lot of time. But if you later want to resume researching a custom solution, the latest book by my friend Ky...

Re: Standalone not connecting to mySQL

This LiveCode Lesson provides guidance on connecting to a database from LiveCode Server: http://lessons.livecode.com/m/4071/l/7003-connecting-to-a-mysql-database It's so rare that one would connect to a database over the open Internet that I'm not familiar with a lesson for that, but hopefully the d...

Re: Standalone not connecting to mySQL

Unless all connectivity to the DB is restricted to your local network, an HTTP-based API (RESTful or otherwise) is safer than directly exposing MySQL to the open Internet. LiveCode Server can be used in such an intermediary role, as can Python, Perl, PHP, or nearly anything else you're comfortable w...

Re: BB Private Message storage limits...

Apparently phpBB uses message count, and I believe the number used in ours is the default.

https://wiki.phpbb.com/Maximum_private_messages_per_box

A note to Support at LiveCode dot com may encourage them to raise the limit above the default.

Re: iOS Browser widget : can we serve a whole local site ?

FWIW, keep in mind that most browsers will not run JavaScript from local files. If the pages do not use JS you should be fine, but if they do you may see differences between platforms, if it runs at all on any of them.

Re: Commercial product offer

I would imagine the Lessons are like the Dictionary and other documentation: the value being provided is that they are printed versions of materials available online. I can't imagine they'd invest the time to make 400 new Lessons without adding them to the Lessons site, but if anyone knows otherwise...

Re: Creating forum/comment web pages using Livecode

Doable, but a lot of work. Even before you set up the commenting DB you'll need to craft an account management system, with password recovery and such. Each bit isn't that hard to do, but there's a lot that goes into something like that. And that's just before you get to the security side of things....

Re: BB Private Message storage limits...

I've been tempted to write LC Ltd about this, but so far you and I seem to be the only ones vocal about the limit. For myself, I've found it easy enough to use PMs as a place to share email addresses where I can keep my conversations all in one place. So for me this has been only a minor inconvenien...

I'm pretty sure they won't be able to send you a pm, for the same reason they can't post the link... Argh. Wish I could change that. The spam countermeasures in place have not stopped Klaus and I from needing to spend considerable time removing bad posts, but they have stopped a good many legitimat...

That's the menu bar. This is the Tools palette I was referring to, similar in layout and behavior to tools palettes in drawing programs.

Re: Automated code review/analysis

If they do not define L1-R it would seem a bit unfair to expect app devs to comply with it. I understand NHS had a problem with apps leaking patient data, prompting closure of the app repository in 2015. While I haven't searched in-depth enough to be able to speak authoritatively, I'd guess most of ...

Re: How to access the text content of a substack w/o opening

Any property of any object of any stack file can be read or written to at any time, without the need to explicitly open the stack with "go" or "open". When accessed without explicitly opening, the stack file is temporarily read into memory, where it may remain until that memory is needed by other ob...
