For graphical application development or multimedia authoring.
MetaCard has a fully functional development environment on all
platforms and doesn't rely on limited-function "players".
- Native look and feel on all platforms, with cross-platform support
for advanced controls including combo-boxes, hierarchical menus, and a
tab control. Built-in support for popular audio, video, and image
formats means there is no need to hunt down or pay for external
- Build complete single-file double-clickable royalty-free applications
on all platforms: no shared libraries, virtual machines, browsers,
installers, or other add-ons are required. This means no DLL or JVM
version conflicts, and high reliability and lower support costs for
applications you distribute.
MetaCard's high-level language (MetaTalk) enables non-programmers to
build the productivity-enhancing applications they need.
MetaCard's entire development environment including graphical editor,
script editor, and debugger was built in MetaCard. This not only
demonstrates the power of the tool, but also provides something not
available in any competing tool: you can change any aspect of the
development environment to make it suit your needs.
