LC Roadmap

That's why I quit after one year subscription.

I like Livecode a lot, but it has it's limitations, lot of bugs are not 

Feature requests not implemented although asked by many.

Livecode is great! Don't misunderstand and it learns a lot of people to 
program. But it runs behind future facts.

While other platforms implement dozens of easy things which you can easy 
access, you'll have to hope it will be implemented.

And the same is offered for free. Maybe takes some more effort to learn.

HTML5 is a drag in LC, unusable, to play ok, to really use no way.. 
Better learn html yourself and use PHP or LC-server if you like, and it 
will take about the same amount of time to create it. And have real fast 
loading of your webpage. Visitors are not going to wait so long until 
it's loaded. Maybe ok for internal use on Intranet, but as user then i 
would be even frustrated of the loading times.

So i now made a webpage in PHP/HTML, a bit javascript and Mysql, it's 
for internal use at a company. All info I need I can find online.

And next to it I'm learning Flutter platform with Dart as main language, 
it's free, it's the future, many devs are going that way.

It supports Android, iOs, web and even building an executable for 
Windows is on it's way.

Costs: time.


Next to this, I also do not understand those dozens of emails I get 
begging for money to buy them tickets to New York.

What would that help the language forward except some awareness of that 
it exists?

Thousands of people loose their jobs these days with this Corona shit, 
many companies (read at least 50%) in Netherlands get support money from 
the government to stay alive and else they are broke. Due to all the 

And here LC is begging for ticket money, I don't see the logic.
