I am super excited to make this topic today, and share with you guys what I have been working on for the past week or so (just a bit more than a month, if you count earlier versions using Swift). I talked about making this in a topic when I first started working on it, I’m not sure how many people saw it (hint hint @BB-Box), mentioned it a couple times to @Rawrbear and @t1_hopscotch, and now it’s finally ready to be shared with the public.
Now, what is this thing I am talking about? Well, good question. You may know that @BuildASnowman created a Hopscotch “hack”. If you didn’t, it’s basically where you can take any MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) file and turn it into Hopscotch code, which allows you to be able to make complex music pieces in Hopscotch pretty easily. It is really cool, however he made his hack using an app called Mathematica, which costs $150 (the cheapest plan for students). So it wasn’t exactly accessible to everyone, unless you already had the app.
Examples of the MIDI Hack
Heathens - twentyønepiløts
Fantaisie Impromptu - F. Chopin
Your Best Friend (Undertale)
Prelude in C minor, BWV 847 does not work in browser
Want You Gone (from Portal 2)
Nyeh Heh Heh from Undertale
We Are Number One (Lazy Town)

Taking music requests!
I know there are a lot of Hopscotchers here that do not have access to a computer. Don’t worry, I have got you covered. I will be taking music requests for the first eight people who ask. All you need to do is fill out the form and post it on this topic and I will happily do it for you!
