I will try to comment as a user.
Hopscotch still doesn’t have lists & arrays. I also have not seen another community that is off-topic both in its app and its dedicated discussion space — comparing
disco.auxy.co, though this is hard to change at the moment.
I have both Hopscotch 3.0+ and Hopscotch 2.0, thanks to the old Hopscotch school edition. While I can’t speak as a new user, I feel less friction moving back into 2.0 for small projects (you would have to test with a newer person to see what helps people more intuitively understand concepts better).
I Don’t have any more opinion or influence than that, right now I am learning/using Python & EmberJS as some nicely designed languages or framework too (to me, and what others seem to say.)
but these were what Hopscotch meant to me.
I like what this community was/has been/is
