Name dropping like that (HYPE from Tumult) inevitably makes me want to
check the thing out.
It certainly looks very impressive . . .
1. It is confined to one platform (Mac OS X 10.8 and up).
2. Its output seems to be HTML5 only.
As I only stretch to Mac OS 10.7.5 at present my comments are only based
by what I can see on the website.
This does not mean that LiveCode should rest on its laurels.

It may be simply that this list is preoccupying itself with more arcane stuff that’s outside the comfort zone of most LC developers, but instinctively I feel the danger is real.

> BR: Ditto what Graham has said. The "danger" is very real….I just downloaded HYPE from Tumult: this is where some serious competition is coming from. One of my "non programmer" editors here, who knows Keynote really well makes "Hollywood grade" presentations… can be building in HYPE in a few days… the HTML5 layer is completely hidden…unless he really *wants* to get into the JS (he never, ever will). I plan to start using it myself to… for projects I had started in LC but which clearly cannot be taken to the next level in LC.
