Re: Using LiveCode to create a streaming platform?

If Twitch provides and API for native apps you could use that. But it would be expensive to implement that component in LiveCode directly.

Most such apps take a hybrid approach, which you can do in LC, by using a browser object to play the steam within an interface built in LiveCode.

Re: How do I use the pPostData parameter in tsNetPost?

LC's post command automatically uses tsNet when it's available, and offers simpler syntax.

But for now, focus on Nepal. Enjoy. This message will still be here when you return.

Re: Snapshot as Gif

May be a bug in the Win version of the GIF library LC uses - worth filing a bug report for:

Re: POLL: LiveCode Server deployment

Hello sphere -

I'm not clear on what you're attempting. This thread is about LC Server, and you mention HTML. These run on opposite sides of the Internet connection, LC Server on the server and HTML in the user's browser.

Can you tell us more about what you're putting together?

Re: How to set up multiple parallel running processes

What is being done with the data during the time between downloading and re-uploading? And what is the size of the data being transferred?

Applications are often network-bound rather than CPU-bound, and the optimal solution will benefit from knowing which is the case here.

Re: General do's and don'ts for standalones

Interesting point. No it's not, Richard. But I never had it on and DataGrids were working in Standalone. Perhaps the others used automated inclusions? I tried switching on now and it seems there is an improvement in that I can navigate the DG. But there are other problems like fields not filling up...

Re: General do's and don'ts for standalones

Is the DataGrid library selected for inclusion in the standalone?

Re: Gradient no longer smooth in LC9.5

Shows exactly what Tom shows in the picture here on Win7 (only thing I can run 9.5 on ), but on 8.1.2 the gradient is nice and clear using the same stack with the same settings (good / normal). Looks like a bug to me. Even though setting it to 'good' will smooth it out, I'd certainly submit it to h...

Re: Using a remote stack instead of a database to share data

I think the -ui switch when calling it is what your looking for, but for sure, Richard would know better. The -ui option is used on the command line to tell a LC standalone to run exclusively as a command-line app for the session, without attempting to initialize a GUI. Here all that's happening is...

Re: Gradient no longer smooth in LC9.5

Thanks. Definitely evident here in the example, and it seems an easy fix: the fill gradient looks smooth because it's set to "good", while the stroke gradient is set to "normal". When I change the stroke gradient to "good" it looks, well, good. :)

Re: How to list files on ftps

Our IT dept decided to secure our ftp server with ftps with implicit connection on port 990. Yes, I caught the "s" part. My question wasn't clear: What is the role of the server that it benefits more from a protocol designed for ad hoc file access as opposed to something more controlled like HTTP?

Re: Using a remote stack instead of a database to share data

Any file can be good for read-only multi-user storage. When a stack file is a good fit for the structure of the data, it can work well. Writes can be mitigated with locks. For small teams in which concurrent writes are never needed, I use that often. The only downside to stack files over any other f...
