Programatically Control Browser Widget

Hi all, Long time absent from LiveCode. Just downloaded the latest stable version (8.1.3), and have been playing with the new 'Browser' widget. Sure makes it easier to add a browser viewport to projects, but apart from setting the URL to be displayed, and whether we want scrollbars or not, there doe...

Re: YAML and LiveCode

YAML is a superset of JSON, and a YAML parser should be able to parse JSON documents, too - as well as do quite a bit more. The latest YAML specs can be found here . Section 1.3 of the specs, titled "Relation to JSON" , states: (...)YAML can therefore be viewed as a natural superset of JSON, offerin...

Re: YAML and LiveCode

Wow, Mark, thank you so much for sharing your code- it's truly helpful! Your code seems almost complete, however it seems to expect that every line of the inputted YAML will always be in 'array' (key:value) format - like this: name: Mark McGwire hr: 65 avg: 0.278 YAML is actually a superset of JSON ...

Re: YAML and LiveCode

I see that it's been a couple of years since anyone posted on this thread. I'm looking for a YAML library for LiveCode, and my big hope is that someone might have written one during this time... I've googled around, but cannot find anything. Does anyone know of one?

Re: Installing LiveCode Server on CrazyDomains

Ok, I seem to have managed to get LiveCode Server up-and-running on CrazyDomains, so I thought I'd document my steps here, in case they may be useful to someone else in the future: download the Linux-64 version of LiveCode Server upload and unzip it inside your hosting account's '/cgi-bin' folder ch...

Installing LiveCode Server on CrazyDomains

Hi all,

Does anyone know whether it's possible to instal LiveCode Server on a CrazyDomains web hosting account? I've tried following the directions in the manual for setting it up via a .htaccess file, but without any success. Any suggestions would be most welcome.

Re: How to Instal LiveCode Server on OS X Server

I found a solution, and therefore am posting it here for reference, in case others need it, too. In OS X Server Mavericks, the appropriate location to put cgi executables (parsers and interpreters), is NOT /Library/WebServer/CGI-Executables , but /Library/Server/Web/Data/CGI-Executables . The step-b...

How to Instal LiveCode Server on OS X Server

I was wondering whether there are any instructions for installing LiveCode Server on a OS X Server? - the official guides only talk about altering httpd.conf files in a client machine. Although the server software is the same (Apache) for both client and server OS X, the setup on OS X Server is diff...

Re: Compile error with sample code

"Explicit Variables" is a compiler setting in LiveCode, that requires you to explicitly DECLARE any local variables before using them. This is something you can turn on/off in the LiveCode Preferences (Script Editor pane), and is usually titled "Strict Compilation Mode". It can be very useful to hav...

Re: Brainstorm: RevOnline curation

@Peregrine: indeed, among the major CMSs, many have adopted these principles - WordPress, Joomla, and I hear that Drupal 8 is moving in that direction (ie., searching for and installing/unistalling extensions from inside the CMS itself). But even programs on the desktop have followed suit: have a lo...

Re: How useful are commercial Database Library Stacks

I'm happy to stand corrected, but as of May 2014, it seems to me the current state of affairs in regards to database libraries, is: 1) there are no database libraries that provide access to the well-known NoSQL databases, such as Mongo or ArangoDB. There are a couple of libraries that implement thei...

Re: Brainstorm: RevOnline curation

In order to be inclusive , in principle all submissions would have to be accepted. This could create an issue where it becomes difficult to find resources that are tested, proven stable, and discover which ones are more widely used - as all get lost in a sea of submissions...

Saving "Bundle-Type" Documents

Is it possible to have my LiveCode (MacOS desktop) app save a document as a 'bundle'? AFAIK, bundles are just directories, but there must be something special that needs to be done so that the system recognises the directory as a 'bundle file', rather than as a simple directory. Is this something po...

I am developing a stack that is a GUI for a command-line tool, for MacOS X. I want to include the command-line tool itself with my standalone build. I have added the command-line tool file in the "Copy Files" pane of the Standalone Application Settings dialog. When I build the standalone, it is inde...
