Hopscotch for Mac

Hello here is my suggestion for Hopscotch!
————————————————————-
Why?
As some of y’all might know Hopscotch can run on a Max with a M1 processor. There are not many Macs with M1s. There for there isn’t a good way to use Hopscotch. Some schools are starting to use macs and buying new macs with M1s are super expensive.


Idea
So what if Hopscotch made a way to access the app without using a M1/emulating


More information
This doesn’t have to be a full version just one where you can code and edit.


Poll

  • Yes I like the idea.
  • I don’t think it would work.
  • No I don’t this it’s necessary.

Most computers (especially macs) are intel based, and I don’t think Hopscotch is compatible with that processor (or maybe it is, I’m not completely sure).

Nonetheless, it would be cool to see Hopscotch on more devices.

@leaders can you make the poll show who voted?

It will reset the votes. Would you still like me to edit it?

But the web version still works on Mac…

That would be nice, though I’m not sure if it’s actually possible.

The web version only supports playing projects (and exploring them too I guess)

They could just upload on the Mac AppStore
Mac doesn’t like 3rd party download

What I would like to see is hopscotch on windows…

Hopscotch on windows would be cool but i’m not sure if it would work. Most computers use intel processing unit but they have use different programing units. So though it would be cool it might be hard.

The web version is a site that can be accessed by any device type—whether it be Apple, Chrome, or Android.
But the app can only be accessed by certain Apple devices (iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch).

I’m not sure how easy it would be to port it to hopscotch

Also generally hopscotch is geared towards touch-screen devices, so android seems like a better goal.
If desktop support was added you’d need to have keyboard-sensing blocks, which do not match touch devices, leading to a lack of compatibility because little Jimmy here is too lazy to add 2 more blocks to his platformer’s code just because he doesn’t have an iPad to use the feature on.

A more general idea would be to make Hopscotch for the web, and then adapt it for mac.

I see your point but

The web explorer has made a “touch screen” compatible feature for macs, windows, lenix, etc

It’s only on AE’s explorer so it is unofficial

And it’s a bit hard to understand/use (or maybe I’m just dum)

linux but russian revolution happened
