Reimplementation of Stacksmith progressing well. Just started adding code to draw selection handles on parts. There's still a lot missing (a lot of commands, can't refer to most objects from script yet, backgrounds don't exist yet, can't move between cards yet etc.) but progress!
@stacksmith heeey I love seeing an update! Where can I learn more about the reimplementation? Wondering if I can help in some way. I have a big passion for HyperCard and end-user programming
@CodingItWrong Sort of, yeah. No Qt or anything like that, though I've abstracted away the platform-specific parts and am also working on a Windows port.
@CodingItWrong I'll be posting status updates here, or on my Discord (join via https://discord.gg/kvwAkba). I've not yet decided if the new version will be open source or not, so currently no code to see.
Will post a built version people can write scripts against once it's a bit farther along. What kind of help would you be able to offer?

2. I do a lot of blogging and live streaming so could demo it at various states, tutorials, although I know “promotion” isn’t so much needed while at an early stage
3. Writing skills + opinions might allow me to help contributing documentation at the appropriate time
