Idea: notifications from projects

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

A notification feature,

send notification ( ) at ()

Or

send notification ( ) after ( ) milliseconds/seconds/hours?

I’d use it for this type of project:

A project which utilizes time as a key factor, so that I wouldn’t have to remember when to come back, I could simply allow that project/user to send notifications.

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

Tbh idrk. It would be completely new, though I guess it would allow for clock type projects to set alarms or smth :exploding_head:.

Here is an example design I’ve made:

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

this would help if you’re upgrading something with user variables, then you could send a notification that it’s done

Such wonderful ideas. This would definitely open up more possibilities for Hopscotch. I especially like the example saying “MagmaPop sent you a notification”. It looks so real.

It wasn’t sarcasm. I also use the same app for drawings.

As long as Hopscotch doesn’t ask me to enable browser notifications when playing those same projects, that’s an interesting idea

If it was in the app, I could see it being interesting under its own tab. Not quite sure how it would work on a coding scale though

U put when ( )
Send notification after ( ) seconds

That way u could delay notifs after they leave

I’ve been wanting to see something like this in hs since I started using the app (literally May 2020 lol), but still! We need this feature, it’d be so helpful.

tsk tsk… hiding your screen percentage in fear of us eh?

Well, we can all clearly see it is around half percent.

It should be above 60 percent at all times!

I see. It runs independently than projects?
What about if a project is just repeat forever send notification random 1-100?

Sure, it would stop when you closed the project, but that’s still a lot of notifications. Also, how would moderation on these work?

Same as the normal text filter, and u would grant either teh user or the project permission to send notifs, that would prevent spamming.

But the only problem I see with this is remember the outrage from the roleplayers on the app for the username variable? That would happen again and people will be angry because they would say stuff like, “I THOUGHT THAT EXPLODINGDUCKS LIKED MY PROJECT BUT THEY DIDNT!!! :rage::rage::rage:

Am I wrong?

Nope, but that would happen with everything lol.
