Hopscotch in a web browser

A feature I’d like to see in Hopscotch is:

The ability to log onto hopscotch online, in a web browser, and create projects, publish projects, play projects.etc

Here are some examples of Hopscotch coding that could be improved if we had this:

If, for example, someone doesn’t have enough storage to download the app, they can log on on their web browser.

Here is an example design I’ve made:

An example design isn’t really needed

I’ve seen something similar in another programming languages, it looks like this:

I think in scratch:

We sorta already have this.

You can play projects, check out their code, and even code a little on there! But you can’t log in or create an account, and the search engine isn’t much better than on the app (the last time I checked).

Yeah… but the main reason this would be useful is that u can make projects and play projects with “username variables” not being “guest” or something…

We have username variables?

And yep… the search engine isn’t much better…

People with the beta editor do… that’s how the “username guessers” that are actually correct work…

I don’t have the beta editor so I didn’t know. And I rarely play any projects. :sweat_smile:

I don’t thing THT is going to create Hopscotch on the browser anytime soon, so I think ae’s Project Explorer is your best bet if you want it. Maybe ask him if he’s thinking about doing that? Although I’m sure there is a reason he hasn’t done it yet.

Just like it:


One topic is plenty.

This is ae’s hopscotch web explorer topic:

It’s the exact same as the app — it uses Hopscotch’s search results and nothing else. It literally is not possible for my top search results to be any better.

I agree with this. Of course you could use Awesome E’s shortcut, but you can’t really do that on a computer (there might be a way, but it would probably be a little complicated). I bring up computers because having hs on a computer would be the only reason I’d even want the app in the first place.

It depends whether the computer is a mac or some other one like dell or lenovo…

you don’t know AE’s builder?

Yeah, since Mac is Apple-based it would have Siri Shortcuts. But since I have a Chromebook which is Google-based, it would be harder to do this. Although, now that I think about it, you should be able to download the app on both computers. Which defeats the purpose of having a website. Still, having Hopscotch as a website would take up much less storage (I assume) than the app.

It depends mostly on the OS, not the brand
Like windows or OSX or Nothing

I don’t use it very much, but yes, I know it.
