Re: Whaat is Livecode realy good for besides mobile apps???

If you have specific questions on using LiveCode's externals API, we can find resources to help you. Great what is the specific way in which I would use the external APis to create working image recognition in Livecode. Since you have stated it can be done I assume that is based on actual knowledge...

Re: Whaat is Livecode realy good for besides mobile apps???

Frankly I could do with just automation as basic as being able to place variables in web forms like form fillers do, I presume that could be done with post but I have seen indications Livecode has problems sending a click event to browsers. Instead of wresting control of events across applications ...

Re: Whaat is Livecode realy good for besides mobile apps???

Don't worry, don't run away. LC is not the limit. The limits are elsewhere. Just imagine and start trusting fully in this: "LiveCode is a flexible software platform that allows you to create any solution, the only limit is your imagination." As the only complete beginner in this thread I will say t...

Re: Whaat is Livecode realy good for besides mobile apps???

But since, as you noted, so many solutions for this exist already, it seems a lot of work to take on just to reinvent a wheel. just as like with word processing there are various needs within automation some of which have not been addressed. Frankly I could do with just automation as basic as being...

Re: Whaat is Livecode realy good for besides mobile apps???

I wouldn't attempt an HTML rendering engine in LiveCode, but then again very few even attempt that in C. Today there are only three such engines in common use (IE, WebKit, and Firefox); it's a daunting task in any language. However You do not have to reinvent that wheel to do web automation. there ...

Re: Whaat is Livecode realy good for besides mobile apps???

Desktop or web automation ?… Yes, liveCode is good at that. ‘image recognition’… not right now, it’s not exactly mainstream… the people developing image recognition are more dependant of having a massive bank of images to compare rather than the code needed to spot the similarities or differences… ...

Re: Whaat is Livecode realy good for besides mobile apps???

I agree with -hh that LiveCode is useful for prototyping, but one of its distinguishing benefits is that it's often equally good for development and deployment as well, making it an end-to-end solution for a wide range of apps. Richard in searching around I read an interesting statement from you re...

Re: Whaat is Livecode realy good for besides mobile apps???

LC is a perfect tool for *developping* ideas. It is not necessarily "the" tool to translate an idea into an app, but "the" tool to find, to come to and enrich the idea......If you look for such a tool, you've found the (currently) best one. Hey -hh thanks for your input. That certainly is an enrich...

Re: Whaat is Livecode realy good for besides mobile apps???

Anthony. I do not intend to overwork this. but I found your post far more inflammatory than whatever you thought was contained in mine. I don't really see what you thought at all, actually. Well let me spell it out for you in spades. In my neck of the woods and almost all of society when someone as...
