From what I’ve gathered the app is written in Objective C, the rendering engine uses pixiJS, and server side they use Ruby on Rails.


#168

To add even more side info that isn´t really related to code languages, Hopscotch has most of their servers (including the API used by the app) hosted by Amazon (I´m pretty sure about that).

According to a web extension I have called “Wappalyzer”, the Hopscotch homepage (https://www.gethopscotch.com/) has been made using Squarespace. This link however, gave me React.js as a result. You are probably correct about Ruby on Rails though, it´s probably being used somewhere.


#169

Your GitHub account seems cool! Your cipher code is cool, and I cannot wait to see more of your awesome projects! :slight_smile:


#170

Thanks! I am going to publish more little pieces of code too
I added both versions to see me-2017 VS me-2018 XD
I am right now trying to do a minesweeper app for Mac (even though there are hundreds of them in the App Store, but I want to do it by myself) but I am used to the Cocoa App interface, and the Game interface is very weird for me at the moment
And I want to learn how to do widgets and how to “transfer” data from the app to the widget…
If school allows me of course XD


#171

Cool. I haven´t really looked in to many GUI (Graphical User Interface) libraries for Python yet. I know Tkinter though, which works great for making small applications or styled pop-ups.


#172

I am still learning all Tkinter features (although my teacher is a fan of the “non-GUI, Pythonic way” XD)
And Java too
I have a lot of things to learn and few time ;-;


#173

Well, at least you have a teacher that can code :wink:
But I cannot really blame my math teacher as he is over 60 years old. He is trying to implement coding in our school as it is pretty much required for all schools in Sweden since June or July 2018. We got a new curriculum that regulates things like coding in school.

Anyways, good luck with everything that you are learning :slight_smile:


#174

Yeah, but the problem is that he is forced to give us easy projects as students are like “Coding is boooooooooringggggggggg” and coding only counts as a 5% of our Maths grade (it isn’t a separate class, it is part of Maths. If it was a separate class, I would get a Excellence Grade XD)

Same here, and advanced maths too

Thanks! You too

@William04GamerA, fwiw, this was a comment from awesomeonion last January while discussing a project of mine that wouldn’t upload.

“rails 5” is a reference to Ruby on Rails


#176

Yeah, so you are correct, like I said.


#177

n o c++ is ew thats just my opinion tho


#178

react is just a JS wrapper
squarespace probably always has it on


#179

app store costs a lot

that’s like saying you want to use Windows with only PowerShell lol


#180

Yeah, I know

XD


#181

Yeah, that’s what I thought about too. React.js is a pretty widely used framewor k as far as I know.


#182

Your ipad keyboard cypher would be better off using a dictionary-style array and itering through it, rather than doing different code for every action.


#183

I am still learning about diccionaries, but thanks for the tip!


#184

If you need any help with that, feel free to tell me! Dictionaries are really useful and also easier to use than you might think.


#185

You don’t necessarily have to use the dictionary data type, an array that functions as one is suitable enough.
