HyperCard online: WildCard #VintageComputing #Software @Apple

HyperCard was one of Apple’s more successful software releases. It was like an interactive database portrayed by a stack of cards which could have text, data, and programming associated with it. A new website exists to provide a similar experience with a web browser: WildCard.

I made this in my spare time with apologies to the creators of HyperCard, to see how it would be on the modern web.
A HyperCard stack is like a pack of note cards that can be flipped through but stay in order. You can add or remove cards from your stack. Each card can have button and field parts; to edit them, choose the appropriate tool, then drag and resize them. You make new ones by dragging a box with the command key.

…I’m not asking for any money; I just wanted to remember how much fun HyperCard was. If you think there’s any fun you could be having but you aren’t, send me a message, or make a stack and upload it! The screens are bigger and better, but the stacks are still the same size! Have a good time! — D. Veloper

The scripting capabilities are very impressive and JavaScript can also be called.
