Connecting to mySQL databases with HTML5

Post by lrieber » Sat Apr 16, 2016 6:34 pm

Does the HTML5 export option with LiveCode 8 (rc1) allow connecting to mySQL databases?

I have developed many stacks with LiveCode 7 that work beautifully with PHP files (as middleware) to connect to a mySQL database. But, when I try converting these to HTML5, nothing works. I know the HTML5 Deployment Guide states that "networking" is not yet supported. Is connecting to a mySQL database just such a "networking" feature? If so, are there plans to make this feature available soon?

The ability to talk to a mySQL database seems like a natural or commonplace need by HTML5 developers.

Thanks - Lloyd
