That was a nice trip down memory lane.  However, I would rather have a modern online script editor for LiveCode where you write a script in one tab of Chrome/Safari/Firefox/Edge <favorite browser>, and execute/display it in another tab.  No installation of any IDE!

This may be of interest to some of you (old) HyperCard folks.

"ViperCard in an open source re-creation and re-imagination of 1987’s HyperCard.”  It runs in a web browser (not Safari, apparently but Firefox seemed to work well)


It is still version 0.2 but the paint tools, button, field and script window are working as you might expect. (Plus a lot of documentation!) I was amazed by what it could do and how closely it followed the old HyperCard look. ViperCard is the work of Ben Fisher, who I had the great pleasure of introducing to HyperCard back in the day… when he was 8 years old and a student in my third grade class.  Way cool!
