"What? No GUI, no IDE. Are you serious?
You are correct. There is no IDE or GUI, and yes, we are very serious!
Many of us think that the command line and any simple text editor are
the most productive and trouble-free environments for programming."
Well, one can do THAT with LiveCode in any text-editor if one really
wants you (I just mucked around with a 5000+ line script in Appleworks),
but I do feel that an xTalk dielect without a GUI or IDE is somehow
rather missing the point.
"How do I create a GUI for my app? I don't know. OpenXION has no
built-in GUI capabilities, but it is built to be extended. Unless
Rebecca already has this in the works, we will need to find a volunteer
willing to write an external to GTK, Qt, or one of the other GUI frameworks"
BIG turn off.
Surely the BIG THING about Hypercard-Supercard-Metacard-Livecode is the
90% of modern programming for PCs and Handhelds requires a GUI.
