Log to console + Console window

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

The ability to pass values, strings, variables, etc. to a console for debugging, along with a movable console window while the project is running :)

I’d use it for this type of project:

Any project, having a way to communicate information normally hidden or more obscure to myself when debugging projects without having to create a custom text object would be immensely helpful, and saves of having to create a new text object for each individual value that you want to see.

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

Here is an example design I’ve made:

prints the given value into the console window, with the text color passed by the color value. the console window is active while the project is running and can be dragged around, or hidden offscreen when not needed. :]

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

the javascript console present in most search engines, and console.log();, along with the many variations of print(); in a variety of different languages.

As a side note- this could also be used for testing functions and value manipulation during a projects runtime.


That sounds great! Maybe a feature that would work well with this is like a change log of what is happening on the screen? Also you could click on a change and see the before and after

this would be really awesome!


Yeah this would be great for debug menus


YES please
so much easier to debug
