[New Book] LiveCode Advanced Application Architecture

Hi Friends,

I've just released a new LiveCode book in the wild. It is called
"LiveCode Advanced Application Architecture" and it deals with Best
Practices from our community and the MVC pattern. You can check the book out at:

https://andregarzia.com/livecode

With the techniques contained in it you will build applications that are
easier to maintain and adapt leading to a more fun and profitable future.

The book is offered here for GBP 15 and is comes in a zip file
containing the book in PDF, Mobi and ePub formats without DRM and the
source code, you can buy it by clicking here: https://sowl.co/cqnKW

BUT WAIIIIITTTT!!!!

I've made a delicious bundle for you! I am offering a bundle of:

* DB Lib: The most user friendly database library for LiveCode.

* The book: The newest LiveCode book.

* Network Tracer: A handy utility to help you debug your standalones.

* AAG | Tools: A collection of little plugins for the IDE

For GBP 100, which is a heavy discount, basically the book is free and
all the rest is 30% discounted. But there is moooooore!

The first 50 people to get this bundle will be able to schedule a
one-on-one call with me to help them out with LiveCode related issues,
which is something I don't usually offer. You can get this bundle at:
https://sowl.co/BAAZl

Don't forget to check all things LiveCode at my home page:
https://andregarzia.com/livecode

I hope you folks like this bundle and book. My plans is to schedule the
one-on-one calls between November 2018 and March 2019, first come, first
served.

Cheers
Andre

Sounds good.

For any of my fellow countrymen that didn't take the time to look -
. "GBP 15" is about $19.13 U.S.
. "GBP 100" is about $127.54 U.S.

Nice site Andre :)

My pleasure, I love to see people get ahead if they can, and this language could use all the literature it can get out there :wink:

Offering a slot of your time to boot is a nice mixer, too.

Aloha Friends,

There was a mistake in the final book generation, a chapter was missing. I've issued a two new updates today to fix this. All the readers should have received an email about it. If you purchased and did not receive the email, please, let me know.

Cheers

Thanks a lot for the kind words, I hope you enjoy the book. I can accept PayPal but it is not automatic, you need to send the equivalent value to 15 GBP or 100 GBP depending on if you want just the book or the bundle and then ping me so that I notice that your payment arrived. My paypal account is "paypal_uk@andregarzia.com", when you send the payment, I will use the admin dashboard to issue you a "free order" so that you receive all future updates automatically.

Yes it does, it is just a wrapper around RevDB, so as long as RevDB can connect, DB Lib can be used.

Be aware though that it is not safe to expose MySQL to the larger Internet like this. It is too large a risk. This is the reason why I created the "Remote DB Lib" which is a library with the same API as my "DB Lib" but that instead of connecting directly to MySQL, it packs the query into an encrypted message, sends that to your server, which is hosting a little PHP that decrypts, run the query, and replies. This way your MySQL is safe behind your server and you can still us the same API.

The "Remote DB Lib" is included with all "DB Lib" purchases. I see them as complementary and they are offered as part of the same product.

Hello Andre,

I see it interesting, for me I've been with LiveCode for about 4 months, more than 20 years with FileMaker. The update has arrived.

I would have liked some chapter that had talked about the printing. It is very easy to print with Filemaker, at least for me, but very complex with LiveCode.

Thanks for the book,

Carles

hi Andre
This is good news, so will one use the same set of functions with "remote DB lib" as with "DB lib"
Do one put the "idiorm.php" file on the server and is there a specific folder to put it in?
Please excuse my ignorance.
I stumbled apon a very nice video of yours on Vimeo explaining the using the db lib functions.
The thing is cannot find it again and would really appreciate it if you could provice me with the URL.

I am impressed with this library. It makes life much easier.
Started working through your book today.

Many thanks

Hi Carles,

Thanks for the kind words. I think that printing is a very good subject but to be honest, I never did it. In about 14 years of LiveCoding, I've never, ever, used the print routines. I will need to consult with others. I am planning to add some little minibooks as extra material for those that purchased the book. I see this book as a book about architecture and not about features, so the little minibooks would cover extra features, maybe I'll start with printing.

Cheers

Thanks a lot for the kind words. The vimeo video is at:

* DB Lib video (it is old but it is still true): https://vimeo.com/46918350
* Remote DB Lib video: https://vimeo.com/220531208

The minimal documentation for the Remote DB Lib is at:

http://andregarzia.com/livecode/dblib/remote_dblib.html

I can't help you get PHP to run on your server, this is beyond the scope of the support I offer but if PHP runs on your server and you have a MySQL database configured there, then setting up Remote DB Lib is very easy (as shown on that post).

I'll try to create a video that goes from zero have it running on a shared server. LiveCode own Hosting should work great for this.

I like to encourage use of TaskSel for new sysadmins to set up LAMP. Makes for a much simpler tutorial, since you only need one line to install TaskSel, one word to launch it, then follow the on screen instructions.
