Hopscotch On Desktop - Development & Production Phase

What is this?

This is a topic for the Hopscotch on Desktop project.

Introduction

Hopscotch on Desktop is a native application on windows that will allow you use your Windows device to work on Hopscotch projects even while offline!

Why Windows?

As I am writing this, desktops are the second most popular form of personal computers, representing 38.41% of the market.

Of those 38.41% of PCs, 73.5% of them run a version of Windows OS, followed by OSX at 14.7%.

That’s a lot of people using Windows

what languages do you know?

6 Likes

Learning .NET and Python.NET, I know HTML, Python, CSS (but I’m terrible at creating something good looking, I just know how to use it.), XML, and lastly I’m also learning JavaScript and Swift.

I’ve been creating a Python.NET game the past 4 weeks, and I’ve been studying some new languages and frameworks lol.

I might not be the best, but I’d like to learn how to use the languages, and gain some experience from this if possible. I’m always open to learning new things, and often have a few hours of free time daily, mostly cause I just code in school out of boredom.

Basically, release an half-way version or wait until a complete version
