Hypercards ➜ Cards as abstraction

HyperCard was an early very successful Mac no-code app. A glorified filed-based database where every entry was represented as a card. It had a few characteristics:

  • The presentation of cards could be customized visually and functionally: add/remove buttons or change visuals. 
  • Any rendered card could also be edited on the spot. 

It was used as address books, recipes or annotating ideas from documents. It got discontinued in 2004, but to this day it still has a massive following & the program achieved cult status.
