Stacks and livecode server?

Hi Eric,

Revlets are very unlikely to come back. RunRev is working on an HTML5 
export feature. That is probably what you want.

Apart from that, it is easy to write a script to export data from 
LiveCode to a website. There are several people on this list who use 
LiveCode as a CMS, including me.

Currently, you can't put a stack on the server and display its GUI in a 
browser. Actual stacks can run only without GUI. To display the GUI, 
you'll have to wait for HTML5.

Best regards,
