HTML5 Deployment

Post by gsillevis » Sun Oct 18, 2020 4:00 pm

Hello!

I'm struggling with HTML5 deployment. I open the HTML file in Firefox and.... not much happens. I get the Livecode Logo, and it says it has completed downloading, but below that is just a black box. What am I doing wrong?

Thank you!

Well; first of all, what is your original source stack meant to do?

AND, what operating system are you using on your computer?

I thought I'd have a go . . . macOS 11.0 beta 10, LiveCode 9.6.1

my source stack looks like this:
-

-
The "downloading" green thing has been churning for 90 seconds above a black bar.

BRAVE browser.

Same cack in Safari 14.

Whoops: didn't do this:

Even bigger Whoops: there doesn't seem to be an "HTML Deployment" guide in the Dictionary.

Last time I tried to deploy HTML5, the engine was massive. Huge. Time consuming to download and run.
Maybe just give it a little more time to load and run.
I am sure there are better ways of getting HTML5 up and running...

This might be due to Firefox seeing opening your HTML file as a cross-origin request.

The easiest solution is probably to set up localhost, this will also allow you to test easily using the Test Target and Test button too.

There is a forum discussion on this that you might find helpful

I hope that helps.

Kind regards
