Is QC the Only Way To Build Layers?

Hello,

As far as I can tell, QC is the only way to build custom layers. I have many years experience with PHP, XML, PLists, javascript (basically web languages) but I am a noob with QC.

I want to know if it is possible to build a layer without touching QC … purely script or xml etc …?

@bbyrdhouse You could use JavaScript and HTML and use the Web browser source to do a layer. However, this will have performance limits. Do you want to share your ideas for the layers? Maybe there is another way to do it.
