RunRev launches Kickstarter campaign to create open source version of LiveCode

Today, the company has launched a Kickstarter campaign that will turn a commercial product over to the open source community. RunRev hopes that if it is successful on Kickstarter, it will be able to offer an easy language to learn for many more people and enterprises through open source development collaboration.

The LiveCode platform allows users to create apps for mobile or desktop at professional or hobbyist levels. It was designed so that it is easy for people to learn and can deliver fast results. Once users write software once, they can deploy across platforms including iOS, Android, Mac, Windows and Linux.
