Server-side LiveCode Scripting – lesson notes

The LiveCode server-side scripting technology allows you to mix LiveCode code with HTML content on the same web page, in much the same way as PHP, the most widely-used server-side scripting language. The advantage for LiveCode developers is that they can use the very same language they use to develop desktop applications to create dynamic web pages or web server output. While the language is the same there are a few differences and additions to LiveCode as used in server-side scripting, compared to the way it is used in developing stacks. Here is a summary of the main differences:
