mergExt Indy Latest: missing docs & externals?

Post by Fjord » Sun Feb 26, 2017 12:41 pm

Hi,
I just downloaded Livecode Indy then mergExt, both from https://livecode.com/account/products/livecode. Then I followed the link http://www.mergext.com/ to get the mergExt doc. For each external, I copied the link to the specific doc page into the corresponding folder. I found a few discrepancies:

Downloaded external folders without a corresponding doc page on http://mergext.com:
blur-1.1.20 , mergContact , mergDevice , mergHK , mergMarkdown , mergMicrophone , mergScreen , rrehardcopy

Doc pages (=> existing external, I suppose) without a dloaded folder:
mergAccessory , mergBanner , mergDataGridScroller , mergDeploy (OK, just saw a thread about this one), mergDropboxSync , mergLA , mergTestApp

Where should I look for these?

You don't need to download mergExt separately from the LiveCode installer or app bundle any more. It's included, as is all the documentation.

You can read the documentation for all of the mergExt externals directly from 'Dictionary' window inside the LiveCode IDE.

True. Then why is it that, on the Indy download page, there are instructions to download mergExt? Kind of incoherent, seems to me...

Hi Fjord,

Those instructions apply to the pre-LiveCode 8 releases, where the mergExt externals were not part of the LiveCode app bundle.

Best,
Panos
