Status of Message Course of Create It with Livecode

Post by montymay » Tue Oct 29, 2019 7:20 pm

I am trying to build a chat app for a office LAN and found the Hello World course of Create It with LiveCode helpful, but it seems that the sequel to that course named "Messages" has not been developed. To better state what I am talking about, a screenshot of the topics of the "Messages" course is here:

Clicking on the links brings up a page stating "Lessons Coming Soon." Does anybody know about the status of this project? Am I looking in the wrong place for it?

Thanks for your responses.

Search online for "chatrev" and ask questions on IRC channel #livecode. After a decade we ditched Chatrev in favour of IRC but it is still available.

There's an excellent tutorial introducing socket programming which uses a chat app as the example:

There is code for a chat server at https://sites.google.com/a/pgcps.org/l ... me/servers. Alas, the links to other lessons are no longer valid. But the downloadable code is.

There is starter code that you can download at https://sites.google.com/a/pgcps.org/l ... uter-games to use as a code base. There is also a pdf file that explains the process and the code for socket servers.

For something more advanced...
Some students once wrote a tic-tax-toe multiplayer/multi computer game using sockets. You can download their code at https://sites.google.com/a/pgcps.org/l ... dent-games. The basics are there but needs fine tuning. (Scroll all the way down to the bottom. It is the next to last program. )

Hope this is of some use...
