Copy and Paste blocks in the web editor!

Hey Hops,

It’s that time of the year again – my last week interning at Hopscotch for this summer. I’m super glad to have gotten to work on the web editor, and I’m really excited to see where Hopscotch goes in the coming months!

This week, we focused on lots of the initial bugs that you’ve reported to us, as well as some key new features. Here’s a list of everything in this week’s release:

  • You can now copy and paste operators and blocks in the web editor!
  • The webplayer should no longer prevent you from tapping on the publish confirmation button (courtesy of @Silvia, @Crosbyman64, and several others)
  • The web editor is no longer broken on Firefox (courtesy of @Rawrbear)
  • The scene selector now refreshes when you open a scene parameter (courtesy of @Spy_Guy_96 and @StarlightStudios)
  • The when object is cloned rule is no longer missing from the keyboard (courtesy of @Spy_Guy_96, @Tri-Angle, and a few others)
  • Shape objects are no longer Dashing Ninjas that hide from your stage editor (courtesy of @StarlightStudios)
  • Initial Dark Mode support has been added
  • Squashed @Petrichor’s collection of fun bugs :beetle: :bug:

And for the #codedonweb competition, we’d like to congratulate @StarlightStudios for creating the winning project – Quad Quandary!

Awesome (E)

I did not expect to become a finalist, tbh.

There are two projects I think are better than mine, but I’m not going to reveal them in order to keep this fair.

Yessss! This makes the editor a million times better! Congrats to all of the finalists I’m so excited that I won!

Great job on all of the work on HS you’ve done over the summer!

Thanks a lot! Your “find a phrase” tool is really useful!

Thanks. I got inspiration from a guy who wanted to check for a capital letter (without a bunch of check if else blocks), and a project created by @ThinBuffalo (find index (regex check)).

@Awesome_E I found a weird bug: when I copy and paste a bubble block with parameters, the last parameter seems to always reset to the default value, instead of retaining its set value from the copied bubble.

I realized that too – feel free to report in #hopscotch-bugs:web-explorer, as individual tag notifications with bug reports are easy to lose
