Browser plugin

Post by MaxV » Mon Oct 21, 2013 2:13 pm

If a browser plugin existed, javascript would be replaced by Livecode in a year all over the internet.
I'd love to put in a html page:

Code: Select all

<script type="application/livecode"  src="helloWorld.livecode" >

A browser plug-in HAS in fact existed, but RunRev dropped its development a couple of versions ago!
So don't exspect to see a new one 8)

This is a bit different. The old plug-in allowed you to execute a stack within a browser - basically no different than having it execute on the desktop (except that I was never able to get font stuff to look right...)

What's being asked for here is a plug-in that would allow a browser to interpret and interact with livecode in the same way that they do today with Javascript. This would potentially be *much* more useful than the old plug-in.

Still, it will probably never happen.

Edit - or, at least I think that is what is being asked for...
