Re: Creating LiveCode applications that play well with git

A custom control is a group that is intended to act as a single control. A data grid is an example of a custom control. Widgets can replace custom controls in many cases. In LiveCode there is the concept of templateGroup, templateField, etc. This settings applied to these template objects affect the...

Re: Creating LiveCode applications that play well with git

You wouldn't be able to get around the fact that you would have multiple instances of the widget. You would have to write your own code that stored the master version of the navigation in a template and then updated it everywhere it appears if you make a change. If you use a behavior then the code w...

Re: Creating LiveCode applications that play well with git

I was mistaken. The packaging code in Levure does in fact store and save the version info prior to packaging the application. A temporary standalone stack is created during the packaging process but the standalone version information is updated and saved to the actual standalone stack before the tem...

Re: Creating LiveCode applications that play well with git

My UI components are all livecode binary stacks. I only use one card per component, I can see the advantages but are there any drawbacks in doing this or anything to watch out for? It looks like you are already considering the major drawbacks - cards sharing a group and visual properties like font ...

Re: Creating LiveCode applications that play well with git

After making a change to "version" and "build" in app.yaml, when should I expect to see those changes in cRevStandaloneSettings: android,version name (same as LC IDE: Version Name) and cRevStandaloneSettings: android,version code (same as LC IDE: Version Code) of the LC IDE? The changes won't ever ...

Re: Creating LiveCode applications that play well with git

This may be a daft question but do you ever split the UI into stacks that contain something you want that’s smaller than a single card? I know every stack has to have at least one card but perhaps you can use dummy cards… It sounds like you are talking about templates that can be inserted into anot...

Re: Creating LiveCode applications that play well with git

I think I should modify the way I’m working a bit then. I’ve been creating bits of the UI as I’m going along and writing code to go with those bits. Maybe I should try & create the whole app UI from the start and once that's done only then start writing code to make it functional. I think you can w...

Re: Creating LiveCode applications that play well with git

Does anyone have any advice / recommendations on Git workflow with a LiveCode Levure project? Yes :-) I will be giving a presentation on git workflow at the LiveCode Global conference next week: https://livecode.com/global/#schedule I’m working alone on a LiveCode Levure project and thinking of usi...

Re: Creating LiveCode applications that play well with git

Glad to hear it Jim. I've been working on the "rename" issue. Turns out that not being able to rename folders across volumes is in the docs. I've reworked the code to use revMoveFolder and rename. I will be posting an update to Levure so that you can build on network drives attached to Windows withi...

Creating installers when packaging a Levure application

If you attended my session on Levure at LiveCode Global Jam you may have heard me mention that installers couldn’t be automated yet. Well, now they can. Levure 0.9.2 was pushed out today and it adds some features to “helpers” that allow the creation of installers during the packaging process. I’ve c...

Re: Creating LiveCode applications that play well with git

Yes, xcopy could be used. I am filing a bug report, however, as `rename` really needs to work in this situation.

Re: Creating LiveCode applications that play well with git

I ran into that same error the other day. The rename command doesn't work with network folders. Try moving your Levure project to the local drive on Windows and try again. It should work. The name and version in app.yml will be used to create the standalone name and version. It is possible that it w...

Re: Creating LiveCode applications that play well with git

I've updated the https://github.com/trevordevore/levure/wiki/packager page with more information about what you need to do before packaging the application. You use the File > Standalone Application Settings menu in LiveCode to configure the standalone settings for the standalone.livecode stack file...

Re: Creating LiveCode applications that play well with git

Okay. You might avoid the error dialog by only opening the standalone.livecode file and trying to build without loading the entire application. Some changes need to be made to the LiveCode standalone building process. Right now there is a lot of loading/unloading of stacks and it can sometimes lead ...
