What is Tangerine?

    Tangerine is a runtime editor for SuperCard 3.x and FlameThrower, IncWell's Mac based CGI engine. You can use it instead of the Project Editor, as a complement to SuperEdit, or in your development standalones.

    As an editor it let's you create and edit SuperCard, FlameThrower and Roadster projects and all their objects. Runtime means that it's always on, in the tradition of HyperCard and the late Run Time Editor of SuperCard 1.x and 2.x.

    Tangerine is compatible with a wide range of situations and needs. It stays "out of your face": It can run with or without its own set of menus, it only uses one global variable, and leaves all the backScripts and frontScripts available to your own projects. You do not have to modify your projects in any way to use Tangerine. No user properties or other unwanted changes will be added to your projects.

Who needs Tangerine? (back to top)

    Whether you use SuperCard for multimedia authoring, rapid application development, or just plain fun, you'll find something in Tangerine to make your work faster, easier, and more productive.

    The interface is simple and consistent so that novice users will feel comfortable right away. Experienced users will also find an extensive range of powerful features readily available.

    Although Tangerine is not a replacement for the indispensable SuperEdit, it does attempt to bridge the gap between SuperCard's editing and runtime environments so that you can spend more time in an operative environment with the benefits of instant feedback.

    If you don't use SuperEdit very much, you'll be pleased with the extended functionality Tangerine brings to the runtime experience, which means that you won't have to switch back to superEdit so often.

    If on the other hand you do most of your work in SuperEdit, you'll be surprised by the power and flexibility of Tangerine. It offers many solutions currently lacking in SuperEdit and I'd bet you'll find yourself in runtime mode more than ever before.

    Pretty cool if you ask me;-) But check it out for yourself in the Screen shots page.

How much does it cost? (back to top)

    It free for the first 60 times you use it.

    The evaluation copy that you can download here will run 60 times which should be enough to give you an idea of its worth (and hopefully get you hooked;-) After that trial period, Tangerine won't run without a registration number.

    Registering your copy of Tangerine will keep Tangerine running beyond the first 60 evaluation runs. It also entitles you to support via e-mail, maintenance updates as they become available and substantial discounts on new releases. When you register a "Standard" version, (read the "how to register" file in the "Register Tangerine" folder for more info on the registration process) you'll be sent a unique serial number matched to your name via e-mail or snail mail if you do not have e-mail.

    If you purchase a PRO version, You'll receive an unencrypted copy of Tangerine via e-mail or snail mail if you do not have e-mail after acknowledgement of your payment by Kagi.
