I was curious as to what the minimum html file, with the minimum javaScript, might be.
I put this into a .html file (I called it "Minimum.html") and put it in the standalone folder on my server.
I navigated the browser to open that file on the server. It worked for a simple LiveCode stack I'm playing with at the moment (-dp-3).
I tried it with my current web app test (LC 10 dp-4) and after updating the source link it works fine for me too. Very nice.

This version runs much better on Safari Version 15.6.1 MacOs 12.5.1 than the one before.
Especially resizing th browser window vertically and horizontally and both is now smooth.
Congratulations.
Thanks Bernd! :D Yes, it works better and is more interesting to test now.

So far, I've tested it as follows:

- On MacOS 12.5 (Monterey), everything works including animation of moving stacks in Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera (although animation can be a bit jerky).
- On Windows 10, everything - except animation - works in Edge and Chrome.
- On iOS 15, everything - except "grab me", moving stacks manually and animation - works in Safari and DuckDuckGo.

HI,

I have a stack I am attempting to deploy on HTML5 (using Livecode 9.6.8).
Everything works fine in the Mac standalone build.
I get nothing that works from the HTML5 build.
If I run it in Test build it comes up with "Err #1".

Any chance this stack you have works in 9.6.8?

Thanks,
Andrew

Nope, no chance, I'm afraid. The html5 output of LC9 is a dead end.
You'll need LC10 to produce a useful html5 standalone (it uses Web Assembly (WASM), unlike whatever older tech LC9 uses).

Hi,

Anybody have any ideas about LC 10 release?

The LC 10 DP 4 web page comes up with a 404 error.

So is ALL HTML5 code dead on LC 9.6.8 or just this stack because it relies on newer technology?

LC 10 dp 5 should appear quite soon, if I understand correctly, and then they aim for stable launch sometime during spring.

You can get some info on the progress here:
https://livecode.com/tag/livecode-10/

They had an offer a while back (2021?) where you could buy an LC 10 one-year license, which expires one year after the official launch, so it can be used and tested all through the development process. I don't know if that is still available. I can recommend taking it if it is.

My web app example stack is unlikely to work at all within the LC 9 html5 context.
But I suppose it should still be possible to deploy 'something' html5-ish with LC 9. Haven't tried that for years though, so can't remember really.
