This post is a reply to Why HyperCard had to Die — by Stanislav. I’m not saying the post is wrong, I am just presenting an alternative that is alive and working well. LiveCode is a modern day HyperCard and everyone who used HyperCard will feel at home at it.
LiveCode runs on macOS, Windows and Linux and can generate standalone binaries for all those platforms plus Android and iOS. You can get it from https://www.livecode.com or you can get a GPL version of it from https://www.livecode.org.
In this post, I will recreate the demo that Stanislav created on their post which was a simple four operation calculator. I hope readers will notice how familiar the environment is and yet how modern it became.

I’ve been having a lot of fun with my new book LiveCode Advanced Application Architecture (available on this site and on Leanpub). To make my life easier, I set aside some hours today to create a little desktop helper application for Leanpub. I wanted an app that could show me some quick information about my sales, allow me to generate new previews and publish new versions of the books.

I’ve just written a new LiveCode book. It explores the best practices used by seasoned LiveCode developers from around the world and also how to apply insights from the MVC pattern into that platform. Along the book you work through a simple address book application while learning all the tips and tricks from our community.
LiveCode Advanced Application Architecture
The book is available for GBP 15 and can be purchased with the button below, or you can read more and learn about the unique bundle I am offering.
Read more for learning about the bundle and also about the experience of writing another book.
A friend on the LiveCode mailing list asked how to read Google Sheet data with LiveCode. In this post we’ll learn how to fetch that data as a CSV dump.
I’ve started a tiny unit testing library project for LiveCode, just the minimum stuff I need for testing my own libraries. It is not fully featured but it kinda works!
Network Tracer Dashboard
Network Tracer is a plugin for LiveCode that enables you to send debug information from any LiveCode stack in the same LAN as the IDE to a handy dashboard.
My LiveCode projects are back online. In That page, you’ll be able to get to know more about DB Lib and AAG Tools.
