Re: Equivalent of classes in LiveCode

There are ideas and concepts in LiveCode that are unique to it, and need to be explained with what LiveCode newbies already know from prior languages. Indeed. 8) LiveCode's arrays are in other languages referred to as hashes or associative arrays. If you need to keep track of bobsmith's salary you ...

Re: Replace LiveCode Script with JavaScript, forever

Not necessarily... I mean, yes, it's a good thing... er... You're basically a one-person operation, and LiveCode is ideal for that. I love the environment and I'm very productive with it, or I wouldn't still be here after 15-odd years. But beyond one-person shops, there are few folks who have heard ...

Re: Replace LiveCode Script with JavaScript, forever

So, WTFF (Why The Flying Fantoushies) is is being adopted faster than you can say 'LiveCode' in educational establishments everywhere while LiveCode is NOT? We used python as a backend processor for crunching lots of data quickly, handing it off to an Angular frontend for web display. Python has th...

Re: A small PR rant

Richard- regarding Xojo's web implementation, you create web apps that are compiled to binary code. I haven't played around with the backend database stuff, but there are drivers for a lot of different databases, so you're not limited to storing things on Xojo Cloud. That would be a definite non-sta...

Re: A small PR rant

I also have to say I like Xojo's license policy. "All Xojo licenses give you access to new Xojo releases for a 12 month period. After your license expires you may continue to build with any release distributed during that 12 month period, indefinitely. You are never required to renew your Xojo licen...

Re: A small PR rant

Xojo for the web is IMHO a much better fit than LC with HTML5. And yes, Android has been just a gleam in someone's eye over at the Xojo team for a long time now. I don't expect to see it any time soon. Richard- I completely agree with the boated submenu thing - just pointing out that it seems Panos ...

Re: Is that the end of SuperCard?

True. Not getting judgy here, I do wish there were a good alternative to LiveCode out there, just to hedge bets. One thing I learned early on in doing hardware designs is "never use single-source components". But if SuperCard can't build 64-bit applications, who's going to keep using it? Maybe they ...

Re: Is that the end of SuperCard?

Update:"we haven't thought about that" was a bit harsh, yes. I obviously don't know SuperCard's code base. But complaining about being blindsided by Apple now after the horse has already left the stall, when they've had years to gear up for this seems a bit disingenuous.

Re: Is that the end of SuperCard?

Could say the same about LiveCode's engine source. It takes will to make a massive change like that. LiveCode's team made the effort. Yes, SuperCard can run in Parallels in 32-bit mode, but that doesn't help deliver 64-bit apps.

Re: Is that the end of SuperCard?

Yep - that's my reading. LiveCode made the decision some time back to rewrite the OSX underpinnings from Carbon to Cocoa and thus future-proof the environment for 64-bit operating systems. Carbon was only supposed to be a compatibility bridge from older OS8 and OS9 programs into OSX in the first pla...

Re: Card Flipping Animation

While I do understand the urge to tilt at those windmills, as Richmond says HC and LC are different beasts. If you do get this thing working (and I have no doubt you'll manage it) you'll probably find that the action is slower in LiveCode than in HyperCard because swapping cards is inefficient in LC...
