As Andre mentioned, it was never meant for that. It's strictly a
server-side language, but it works very well for its intended use. My
personal site is built completely with it: <http://jacque.on-rev.com/>
The automatic embedding of stacks into a web page is what revlets are
for. So there are two parts to the LiveCode web experience -- the server
language (on-rev, irev) and the client plugin (revlets.)
The nice part is that you can combine the two on the same web page.
That's what I've done here:
<http://jacque.on-rev.com/codebits/dualrevlets.irev> On that page, all
the page layout is managed by "includes" in my irev scripts, and some
things are dynamically calculated by the irev scripts when the page
loads (the copyright notice, for example, updates the year
automatically.) But the two revlets on the page are run by the
client-side plugin. You get the best of both worlds this way.
