A development tool designed for speed

Visual development environment

Drag the fully featured controls you need from the Tools Palette onto your app. Place them where you want, resize, and customise their properties to change their appearance and behaviour.

Edit live applications

In LiveCode your application is always running. You can add objects or change the code and instantly see the effect. No other language does this. Editing live applications creates a powerful workflow, so you can build your apps faster and more easily than ever. Simply toggle between ‘run’ and ‘edit’ mode.

One code base

LiveCode is cross platform so you won’t have to write extra code for each platform you deploy to. This avoids having to write your app multiple times for multiple platforms saving you crucial developer time.

Extremely Multiplatform Now with Web App Deployment

Create native applications for iOS, Android, Windows, Mac, Linux, Server & The Web all from the same code.


Code once, deploy to billions of devices. LiveCode is a truly multi-platform programming tool with iOS, Android, Mac, Windows, Linux, Server & Web deployment options.

Full Stack App Development

LiveCode enables full stack development across multiple platforms with its range of desktop, mobile, web and server capabilities. Learn about the LiveCode features and top third party components that recommend when using LiveCode for full stack development.

A powerful and productive language

A natural expressive language

The LiveCode language is designed to be expressive, readable, memorable and as close as possible to the way you speak and think. That means you write up to 90% less code compared to traditional languages.

Maintainable code

Code is written once and read hundreds of times. The simple and straightforward aspect of the LiveCode language makes your code base easy to read and maintain, with less need for comments.

GUI coding built in

Working with your app GUI is not an afterthought. Its integrated right into the language. Create and manipulate sophisticated GUIs with dedicated, built-in language designed for exactly that.

Extensibility Built In

Ready made useful extensions

LiveCode comes with a wide selection of controls and libraries but if they aren’t enough, you can download and install extensions created by members of the LiveCode community and third-party vendors.

Make your own extensions

If you can’t find the perfect control or library you can write your own. The LiveCode development environment has tools to help you develop, test, debug and package your extensions.

Powerful extensions

Developers can also access the host platform when writing extensions, whether it’s using a specific API, UI component or system level operation. Extensions can be written in LiveCode as well as other programming languages such as C, C++ and Java.
