IOS externals sdk?

Post by niiniju » Mon May 02, 2011 10:10 pm

In IOS notes for 4.6.1 version of LiveCode:

"From today, developers can write their own extensions to the LiveCode engine. If LiveCode's built in feature set does 90% of what your app needs, you can now wrap any API to add that last 10% yourself. "

Where is the SDK???

The SDK is available.
(Sorry, I'm not ALLOWED to post a real link!)

Which leads me to ask, has anyone had any luck with rreNarrator?

The video is not detailed enough to be helpful!
I'm afraid the video assumes we know how to link the externals, as he just mentions that Xcode creates 'important files,' but doesn't explain how they are incorporated into an existing stack for use with iOS. I also find it frustrating that the app is not shown working under the iOS after export, leading to a 'trust us, it really works' feel.

Do the externals need to be linked separately during the build?

More to the point, can you provide a video example of adding an external into an existing stack that has been tested on an iOS device?
