HyperCard: Looking for the BEST add-ons for fresh setup

I'm looking for the most useful add-ons to HyperCard to make it the most functional that it can be!
What would those be and why?

Thanks in advance!

I'd be interested too; I've got an hypercard project that's been waiting for me for a while aha

The Rinaldi Collection of XCMDs and XFNCs (I'm surprised we don't have these here).

Frederic Rinaldi wrote a huge number of useful resources for use in HyperCard development over several years. Someone has uploaded a collection to the Internet Archive, in the form of a emulator ready to go (likely Mini vMac or B2).

But he has also included the Rinaldi collection as a separate download which you can get from this page. The file to download is the "X-Archive_6.0.sit.hqx" (1.8M) archive on that page. The 20MB "disk.img" also on that page, will be the prebuilt emulator and not likely of interest if you are already set up with a running HyperCard.

You may want these three tools for your HyperCard arsenal, too.

CompileIt! - Double-XX - WindowScript

HyperCard tools for creating XCMDs and external 68k apps.
