LiveCode Community is open-source HyperCard for the 21st century

Ian Harac | June 5, 2013
A free development environment with cross-platform features and easy interface creation is worth at least a few hours of your time to evaluate it.

A second, minor, bug is some interface oddities. Some dialogs float and some don't, some of the tools do not work exactly as specified (sometimes due to the documentation being for the Mac version), and so on. Nothing critical, but you'll need to get used to LiveCode's quirks.

I began my professional programming career with HyperCard. I am very happy to see a version that's very 21st-century aware, with decent database and Web functionality. Now that the price has dropped to "free," I strongly recommend at least looking over LiveCode and seeing if it's a useful tool for you.
