There are 18 days remaining to further develop this project on the MIT Climate Co-Lab site. http://climatecolab.org/web/guest/plans/-/plans/contestId/1303501/planId/1327125
This project is to use Livecode to develop Global Warming News Readers. The goal is to use this desktop app to educate a cadre of informed, trusted messengers around the world, who can teach their families, friends, neighbors and politicians about the actions that are needed to address climate change.
I argue that Livecode is the best programming language to develop this:
- It’s free and open-source for developing this free app.
- It’s rapid development software that is relatively easy to learn.
- Livecode provides abundant assistance with tutorials and forums.
- There’s a world-wide, active user community that support developers.
- The source code can be distributed and modified to customize the app for different locales.
Any suggestions? I’m an old mediocre Livecode programmer. I would welcome seeing some more sophisticated Global Warming Readers from our more talented LIvecoders. Up-votes for this project would be appreciated.
I’ve posted a beta 1.0 version of a Global Warming Reader, developed with Livecode 8.0, DP12 at: http://globalwarmingapps.org/downloads.html The source code is also posted.
I will post a beta 2.0 version later this week developed with 8.0, DP14. This uses a widget “Tree View” to simplify the user interface.
Working with 8.0, DP14 is a pleasure.
