mergLA for Mac

Trevor DeVore via use-livecode
I created an admin backend app for a client so they can manage data  
for their frontend app. This backend, based off client request, is  
running on macOS/Windows/iOS. The desktop versions use a password for  
authenticating access but the iOS deployment uses Touch/Face ID for  
authentication via Monte's extremely easy to use mergLA external.

Recently this client upgraded their laptop to a MacBook Pro that also  
supports Touch ID and asked if the same fingerprint technology could  
be implemented in the macOS build. I was blissfully unaware that this  
feature even existed on that platform, but apparently has been  
available since the 2016 model year.

I know several of the other merg externals utilize the same/similar  
underlying framework so they work on both macOS and iOS. Is this just  
a matter of recompiling the external or is there a deeper change that  
would need to be made to unlock this?

Hi Andrew

There’s this hibernated enhancement request. You could contact support and request it be taken out of hibernation.

Cheers
