Database connectivity in the way that "normal" LiveCode apps have
open raw sockets. It's unlikely that you'll be able to connect an
LiveCode HTML5 app to a MySQL server in the foreseeable future, for example.
In the future, the plan involves improving the networking and URL
operations available in HTML5 standalones to allow you to use REST APIs
to persist data (e.g. using FireBase). However, there's no current
schedule for doing this work, so I'm not able to answer your question.
