Hi all,

Looking for a guide or tutorial on using livecode to develop a website. Need additional help on the prerequisite before starting to learn how to use livecode to create a website. Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

I don't think LiveCode is meant for developing websites.

I think LiveCode is for developing applications.

Eddie, are you thinking of LiveCode Server?

If so, the range of possibilities is quite vast. Lc6 Server is as flexible as PHP, so there's a lot you can do with it.

What type of web site do you want to make?

Hi,

I understand, I just wanna experience and try how to use livecode to develop simple html 5 web apps since I’m a loyal fan of livecode. Just trying to understand more.

Thanks!

Hi,

I don’t think I’m talking about server, tried the whole afternoon to understand the prerequisite for it but I’m unable to do so. I’m thinking about using HTML 5 to develop a website instead. Trying to create a portfolio website for all my coding projects that I have done.

Thanks !

Normally, you only have to export it then upload it to a folder on your server and the open the website or local folder in your webbrowser:
https://your_ultimate_website.com/thisfolder or https://127.0.0.1/mytestapp

Note: the html export is not really a website, see it as an application which runs on your server.

Hi!

What’s the difference between livecode server and livecode HTML 5?

Thanks!

Livecode server can be seen as an alternative for PHP or likewise, executed on the server.

HTML5 and/or javascript is mainly executed in your browser. That's why an html5 export is downloaded before it runs in your browser.

Hi,

But the HTML 5 can also work as a website as well as compared to a server?

Thanks!
