Chapter 4. Using Remote Data and Media

Data needs to get out more!

Applications can be made where all of the supporting data is within the application, but quite often we want to show data that is out in the real world somewhere, and also to save information (a high score list perhaps) to files that are external to the application.

When creating a LiveCode application we need to think about the structure of the stack, its code, and the data it uses.

In this chapter we will:

  • Look at the various ways a stack might be structured
  • Think about where code should go
  • Write to and read from external text files
  • Create a scrapbook-like app for remembering interesting Internet based media files
