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.

Warmest Regards,
