Has anyone worked on the idea of accessing a LiveCode application from a web browser, such as happens with Zoom? With a URL link to a page, the webpage shows a dialog:

“Do you want to allow this page to open ‘’?” 

which then opens the local app

My use for this would be for enabling a user using an online LMS (learning management system) to directly access a location in my application on their local machine.

I see a few methods described online, but was wondering if anyone has experience with this.
