I've been pretty happy generating html reports for some of the big LC
applications I've done. Use something like bootstrap that has a good print
style sheet. Some JS powered charting that prints nice. I would open in
external browser in my older applications but I wonder if things wouldn't
work nicely in the new CEF browser.
Once things stabilize a bit more, I think we could do tons of standalone
web applications this with it similar to electron or node-webkit. For
the front end talking to data providers on the server side. We could reuse
the data to serve from the livecode side from a sqlite database. If I had a
little more confidence in some of the newer strains of livecode I'd have
done it like that instead of in electron.
