Integrating Desktop or mobile application with LMS using LTI 1.3

Thanks for the responses. I am still actively working on this.
I have hired a summer intern. Molly, to work on this. She has been getting up to speed on LiveCode and LTI 1.3 and now she is turning her attention to working on a proof of concept stack to connect with an LMS system and send commands and receive responses and process them.
Indeed we have found that LTI 1.3 is supported by many LMS’s to varying degrees and some still just support LTI 1.1 currently. (There is a LTI 2.0 but that is a deprecated standard. http://www.imsglobal.org/lti-security-announcement-and-deprecation-schedule) The LMSs we have looked at also have their own APIs which seem to have features beyond what the LTI feature set is but still looking at this.
I am not at the point yet where I can open source it and I am not really sure how to go about that. (Don’t know how I would sell it either but probably not much of a market for it.) I have my main app on GIT using Monte’s lcVCS but if I did want to go open source with this library I want to to do something simpler like a script only stack library and maybe do a Demo app based on Trevor’s Levure App Framework https://livecode.com/products/livecode-platform/levure/ to make it easier to use git. Does this sound like a good approach?
We are also looking for a way to access a sandbox with one of the LMS’s to test the proof of concept app against. If anyone has info on that that would be appreciated.

I'm also looking into this as we are using the Canvas LMS at our university (where I have my day-work) so I'm definitely interested in some participation in a LiveCode LTI library. I've just started my work so no code yet though...

This time around I found those seem to have been superseded by LTI 1.1 going to LTI 1.3.

It uses oAuth 2 for authentication and JSON for messages both of which are available on the the latest version of LiveCode.
