LiveCode has its heritage in the HyperCard hypermedia system released by Apple back in 1987. HyperCard was a inspiration to Tim Berners-Lee's development of the WWW. LiveCode is developed and supported by the RunRev corporation in Edinburgh, Scotland.
It allows developed applications to run on the Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS and Android plus related servers. LiveCode is available in a free open source Community version and a Commercial version for publishing through the Apple AppStore and Google Play stores. The LiveCode IDE development system will be demonstrated on the Mac with simulations on both iPhone and Android devices.
LiveCode was a recent finalist in the Dr. Dobb's Jolt Award for Mobile Development Systems. LiveCode's recent emergence was funded by a successful Kickstarter project in early 2013.
