What is LiveCode?
Write once, deploy anywhere
LiveCode enables flexible delivery to multiple platforms and devices from a single code base. This capability can boost the return on investment you get from adopting LiveCode by an order of magnitude.
LiveCode solutions can be deployed as native executables on Windows, Mac and Linux desktops, popular Web browsers using the LiveCode Player (a browser plugin), servers, and a number of mobile devices. Distribution of your applications is always royalty-free.
We’ve worked hard to make the language as compatible as possible and to minimize the number of changes you need to make on each platform. There are many where cases LiveCode applications will run on different platforms with no changes at all.
Native support for each platform
LiveCode has support for a plethora of native features on each platform that we support. While code changes are often not required in order to run, you do usually need to do a little work if you want to take full advantage of the native feature set and look of each platform we support.
Typically applications will run on Windows, Mac and Linux desktops with minimal modification though we do advise taking a little time to tweak the user experience on each platform. Many applications require minimal changes to deploy in a web browser though in it is usually sensible to redesign aspects of the application to fit in with your website or with other web applications.
