Thanks for doing this!
 We need more server activity. IMHO its the coolest thing ... and currently
one of my favorite uses of Livecode in building media media presentation
systems. It's strictly bare bones admin (text settings files and
self-building scripts using folder content info) and have built an
audio/video player, a directory 'player', a photo gallery player (since we
have more access to graphic controls in new versions), and a 'download
player'. All are short redirect files in folders that "includes" a master
.rev file in a library to do the work, but acts and addresses as though is
operating in the local folder .  Kinda like behaviors.

 I've been integrating Bootstrap UIs, as often front end stuff can be a
major time suck of building a web app, when really most of us would rather
build from pre-tested components like we do with the desktop version, then
make it prettier or more useful. It's comforting knowing that the BS parts
are all designed to work with all modern browsers, INCLUDING IE, the
biggest pain. Someday some bright Livecoder will build a drag and drop
interface for writing  Bootstrap web pages, I'm sure. It's mostly
boilerplate. And it looks great.
