Hopscotch for computer?


#1

So I was looking through the official hopscotch youtube channel when I found THIS:


It's a pretty old video, (actually, it's their first video!) and they refer to the device as "iPad", but there's a mouse there! Were they running it in a simulator? Will this ever become a thing? Who knows? @Liza @Meg @Montoya do you guys know?

Wow that's a reeeaallllly old video! I don't know why there is a mouse.

I was thinking, maybe they should make it for computer. Maybe put it in the mac app store for easy installation, or maybe as a google chrome app. Most other ways, such as a .dmg file or .exe file would be too confusing, cause then you have to download it from a website, which isn't very trusty! Even if it's hopscotch's own website!

That would technically be Scratch then! :stuck_out_tongue:


#5

Testing I think. The preview and stuff can work on the computer.

The community

They may have been using it over their web application, in which @Rodrigo has stated that's how they control Hopscotch. I may be wrong, it's just my guess.:slight_smile:


#8

No, that's a completely different thing. The simulator is the thing we use (part of XCode) to test Hopscotch while we're coding it. The web application I was talking about is an admin tool that we use to feature projects, create notifications and that kind of things.

Oh okay, I get it. Thanks for clearing it up @Rodrigo!:grinning:


#10

I would really like online Hopscotch because I use a computer for the forum.


#11

Wow that editor is older than me :open_mouth:


#12

What if someone made a scientific calculator on HS?

YOU FORGOT WINDOWS! WHAT ABOUT WINDOWS STORE!? ~90% OF THE WORLD'S COMPUTERS RUN ON WINDOWS!


#14

Is there such thing as the Windows Store? I didn't know that lol


#15

That would be really useful! (Although some young kids may not know how to use it at first!)
