First time on web... not so good

So, I decided to create a web version of an app I've been working on and try compiling it for the web. I found a free hosting site (000webhost) and I used the Community Edition. I used the instructions in the Lesson (http://lessons.livecode.com/m/4071/l/800867-how-do-i-put-my-first-app-on-the-web) a...

Open Source vs. Closed

So, a real newbie question...

I understand that Community Edition is for open source code, and Indy will protect code. But... I don't exactly understand what this means. Let's say I compile a project in Community Edition. How would someone then view my code?

Thanks!

Re: Learning to use APIs

I appreciate your thoughtful response with encouragement to learn http. I took your advice and learned a bit about http (and then tcp/ip) -- videos were more helpful than Wikipedia, but it led me to realize I need to build a custom http tsNetCustomSync request. To my shock and surprise, it actually ...

Re: Learning to use APIs

I really, really appreciate that. I feel like I shouldn't be wasting people's time, but I am so at the beginning of my programming journey. This forum has really helped me. I went to a place called "Rapid API" where I signed up for the Morning Star API. They offer snippets of code in like 20 languag...

Learning to use APIs

(I really hope I am not asking too many questions -- tell me if I am overasking! Don't know the netiquette) I am looking to write an app that pulls in current stock prices using an API like Morningstar's API. But, I have no idea how to use an API with LiveCode. Does anyone know where I can learn? Th...

Re: Trouble Writing to a Google Sheet

Your button that retrieves the numbers is so nice! The little thing in your code that is missing is that if you have more than one word in the data you are inputting, it must replace a + with the space. So, try using libUrlFormData to automatically format things correctly: put "entry.1417781247" int...

Re: Trouble Writing to a Google Sheet

Thanks - I was looking on a different page -- not the "View Form" page. You have definitely helped. Thank you. I am still wondering, however, if there is an alternate method that does not depend on picking out names from source code. As well as being tedious, it is not very generalizable (is that a ...

Re: Trouble Writing to a Google Sheet

First of all, thank you so much for helping. I really appreciate it. The code you sent works, which is awesome. But... I need a little more help understanding how to generalize things. You said to search "Entry" in the source code of the form. I searched all 44 times the word entry appears, and did ...

Trouble Writing to a Google Sheet

I am trying to write from LiveCode to a Google Sheet.

Re: Packaging a Standalone

Hi. I am talking about database drivers, pdf driver, and the local database file itself. All are saved separately. In terms of downloading a Zip folder, or individual files, it's definitely possible, but also not very smooth. You download an app from the web and typically there is an installer that ...
