LiveCode is a modern day HyperCard

LiveCode

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 written a new book about LiveCode

Book, LiveCode

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.
