LiveCode is an open-source programming language designed for creating apps. Originally known as Revolution, the language lets developers write in a human-readable, high-level English-like syntax that is translated into executable code. LiveCode supports rapid application development by using visual tools along with its scripting language. A special feature of LiveCode is its ability to build apps for multiple platforms — Windows, macOS, Linux, iOS and Android — from a single code base.
