Livecode <-> Smallest Federated Wiki?

Post by openworld » Fri Aug 16, 2013 6:34 pm

Ward Cunningham, the (Hypercard-inspired) initiator of wikis in the 1990s, has been making impressive progress with his open source "Smallest Federated Wiki" project: http://wardcunningham.github.io/ .

Is there a path for Livecode stacks to be exported to (or otherwise integrated with) SFW?

There's always a path. The hard part is finding the one that's actually useful :)

LiveCode stacks are binary data, so if you can attach download links to your wiki platform of choice, then that's probably the easiest way.

If you want to do a lot of tedious and hard work, you can write an exporter that uses LC-based objects and text information to create something the mentioned wiki platform can read. But you will probably not be able to easily transfer the more complex information like locations/layouts, sounds or scripts. The other way is probably a simpler: a stack that downloads, interprets and shows the wiki data.
