HTMLRenderer or .NET for toy application

Postby rherman on Wed Mar 13, 2019 11:32 pm

Which is better for a beginner to create a simple toy application with some graphics (sharpplot), and database interface to learn APL - HTMLRenderer or the .NET interface?

I have some familiarity with F# and .NET, and basic HTML/JS.

I am studying the documentation to see which appears easier and capable for this exercise. Thank you.

Hi Rob

Assuming you're on Windows, we'd suggest ⎕wc, HTMLRenderer and .NET in that order. Admittedly the ⎕wc tools aren't transferable to other platforms, but we think for a simple application that would be the best place to start, if for no other reason than that there's more documentation available (including Bernard Lerand's Mastering APL

SQAPL is supplied with Dyalog APL, so "all" you have to do is to get the ODBC drivers installed; here at Dyalog we use MariaDB/MySQL extensively, and once you've got the DSN configured, you should get on OK.
