[ANN] Preview of AppStarterStack for Livecode

Post by makeshyft » Wed Jan 05, 2022 7:46 pm

Hello Everyone,

Today I am happy to announce a preview of the AppStarterStack for Livecode v 0.99.

The AppStarterStack is a Livecode stack that accelerates the development of rich multi-platform applications using the Livecode development tools and engine.

It contains many functions and abstractions that every professional software needs, which you and/or your developer would have to build when starting a serious software project.

We built the AppStarterStack in order to significantly accelerate the development of all of our future products. But why should we be the only ones to use it and benefit from it?

It is designed to enable founders and developers to focus their team’s efforts exclusively on the functions and features of their particular application, without building their application’s architecture from scratch.

With the AppStarterStack as a starting point, even your MVP can look and work like a polished product.

The AppStarterStack comes with 100s of features out of the box.

* Make Windowed or Fullscreen applications.
* Built for continuous uptime, to run in foreground or minimized.
* Auto-Resizing, Responsive & Non-Blocking Interface
* Up to 4 simultaneous navigation bars in as many configurations as you need
* Contains many 1 line abstractions to accomplish many different tasks
* Non Blocking & Performant
* Built-in Timer, Log, Task Scheduler
* 1 line I/O: File, SQL(lite), HTTP, S3 with progress and error handling
* Easy "Real-Time" updating
* Settings Inputs (Toggle, Input Fields, Slider, Checkbox, Dropdown, Select File, Select Folder)
* Easy Right-click Menu
* Easy Badges to give updated counts to your users
* Super-Grid (Different grids, using a universal datagrid with 1 universal “column”.)
* Fully customizable to look the way you want, nearly everything can be changed to suit your style and needs.
* Multiple premade controls & examples
* Your application can spend nearly its entire development cycle in a build-able state. It builds to Desktop & Mobile & (HTML in 2022)
* It looks and works consistent across all platforms
* 1-click source control export if you want to keep track of code changes.
* Completely open codebase, you can change or fix anything you want or need.
* Goal & Process driven, you will literally transform the AppStarterStack file into your application.
* Thoughtful architecture to help you be and stay organized with your project’s design and code.

& so much more

Hmm.... Thats really strange. I will look into it.

I built the .app on a mac .....it started fine, then i zipped it. Maybe unzipping?

Thanks for the heads up.

Here is a link with the .app inside its own folder, which some mac's might like better.

Regarding the Mac error, has the app been notarized?

Thanks Tom,

still having issues trying to download the (hopefully updated) mac demo - the download just randomly stops.
Is there a mirror?

I can download either of the zip files ("for OSX" and "for OS X 2") and unpack the zip file to get a 25.6MB application, but neither of the apps will launch. Just "The application "AppStarterStack.app" can't be opened."

I'm afraid i still cannot download the macOS demo off the website; the download stalls halfway (Safari just stops with the error 'can't parse response', while FireFox and Chrome download a file of about 12-15 Mb even though initially this is reported as being 36 Mb and the resulting zip file contains an app that cannot be launched in any way)

Too bad...

PS: perhaps if a .dmg version could be shared for download this would work better?
