Export card layout to html and css files

Post by Richard K. Herz » Fri Oct 07, 2016 7:00 pm

I am developing a project to export LiveCode card layouts to html and css files. The intended use is to help develop interactive simulations and not to make full-featured web pages. There is no LiveCode script conversion. After export, I write javascript to add action to the page. The project is posted on GitHub at <https://github.com/RichardHerz/lcCardLayoutToWeb>. Comments and contributions are welcomed.

Richard,

thank you very much, this is a really big project with an already solid base. It also opens the (sadly time eating) possibility to include newest HTML5 components and effects for modern browsers!

I can see your need to have a fast web-ensemble for your great demos. Although that is what we could have from the HTML5 standalone builder with a few more "native" parts (Peter's own once written words). Especially, since browsers have increased remarkably "playing speed" and "loading speed" for the HTML5-standalones.

LC's HTML5-progress has completely stopped since several months and we don't know anything about the future of this LC-'platform'. So I was also forced to stop working with that and switched to the next 'experimental' LC-part: LC Builder.

But I haven't give up the hope there will be more development for the HTML5-platform. If not we still have with your project a new way to go.

Anyway, given time, I'll come in, there are so many interesting aspects.
