I'm working on modernizing Rosetta Code's infrastructure. Starting with communications. Please accept this time-limited open invite to RC's Slack.. --Michael Mol (talk) 20:59, 30 May 2020 (UTC)


From Rosetta Code
(Redirected from LiveCode)
This programming language may be used to instruct a computer to perform a task.

Execution method: Compiled (bytecode)
Garbage collected: Yes

Listed below are all of the tasks on Rosetta Code which have been solved using LiveCode.
Your Help Needed
If you know LiveCode, please write code for some of the tasks not implemented in LiveCode.

These are all of the implementations of xTalk on Rosetta Code. LiveCode (formerly known as Revolution) is a byte-code compiled language created by Runtime Revolution

It is inspired by HyperCard/HyperTalk, but goes far beyond that heritage by:

  • Creating applications that run on:
    • OS X
    • Mac Classic
    • Windows
    • Unix
    • iOS
    • Android
    • Web Servers (with LiveCode sever)
    • Web Browser HTML5 Engine (as of version 8)
  • Having a full interface toolkit with native widgets on all platforms
  • Incorporating modern language features like regex, associative arrays, support for internet protocols, etc.
  • Supporting color natively (HyperCard die-hards are now breathing a sigh of relief)
    • As of version 8 LiveCode includes an additional, strictly typed language variant called LiveCode Builder (LCB) which allows authoring custom graphical control widgets as well as access to foreign code libraries (version 9 supports C, Objective C, and JAVA libraries, others may be added in the future). There is also a method for using JavaScript within a browser widget and methods for exchanging data between the two languages. Additionally LiveCode can use other languages through a shell and open process functions, as well as OSA Scripting languages such as AppleScript on macOS.
