Before You Get Started
This manual will walk you through how to create a To-Do application using SQL Yoga. As we walk through creating the application you will be shown how to use SQL Yoga to get things done.
We will use the GLX Application Framework as the foundation for the application. Before you continue you should download the To-Do Application tutorial files.
IMPORTANT: SQL Yoga Is Built On Top of RevDB And the Valentina (V4REV) External
SQL Yoga is built on top of RevDB and the Valentina external (V4REV). In order to use SQL Yoga you must have a version of LiveCode that supports database access or own a copy of the V4REV database external.
This sample is built using SQLite.
Download To-Do Sample Application
You can download the To-Do Application tutorial files here:
Start a Fresh LiveCode Session
Start up LiveCode and don't open any other stacks. This ensures that you don't have any stack name conflicts or conflicts caused by previous SQL Yoga tests while working on the tutorial.
Have A SQLite Database Editor At The Ready
When developing a database application it can be handy to have an application available for managing the database you are working on. The are numerous SQLite tools available. Here are links to two:
SQLite Manager for FireFox (free)
SQLiteManager by sqlabs (paid)
Optional: Install GLX Application Framework Plugin
If you want to look into how the sample application was configured using the framework then the GLX Application Framework plugin is required. This is optional and is not required to work through the tutorial. If you have not already installed the GLX Application Framework plugin you can get it at the following url:
After downloading the framework distribution follow these instruction to install the GLX Application Framework plugin:
