Re: Livecode is a C++ or programming language

To bring this back to the OP's original question, the LiveCode engine is written in C++. And thus the github label. But the LiveCode programming environment that is built on top of the C++ engine is a scripting language on a level with ruby, python, etc. So if the question is something like "can we ...

Visualizing data

BSidesSF is virtual this year, so we're revisiting some talks from earlier years. Here's one I missed last year that deals with various aspects of visualizing data: why to avoid pie charts, how and when to use log scales, some rules of thumb, a fascinating real-life example of effects of simple visu...

Re: GLX2 script editor released for Revolution

Hold that thought for a bit. We're on the verge of getting a new version out the door, and it might be more appropriate timing in a few days.

Re: Equivalent of classes in LiveCode

Debugging system stacks is a bit tricky. Normally breakpoints are disallowed in system stacks. You can enable this through a global property. I regularly work on system stacks in situ without getting myself into too much trouble (usually. fingers crossed. famous last words) global gRevDevelopment; p...

The reason I suggested putting the stacks into the user plugins folder is that the IDE loads them on launch so you don't have to do any extra fiddling around with 'start using' or remembering where the library stacks are.

Re: Equivalent of classes in LiveCode

OK. I have never found the need to assign stack files for anything I'm working with exclusively in the IDE. Only when I'm ready to package up something for a standalone application.
