This is referring to LiveCode Connect - which I did a prototype for in
an LCG2017 session...
Its currently pegged for 'completion' in Q2 this year for LC9.1, and
assuming things align, we will likely have at least one more talk on it
in LCG2018, if not two (although the latter two things, in particular,
are subject to change).
LC Connect uses Swagger/OpenAPI specs to generate script libraries which
wrap the APIs.
