About a year ago, on Pi day (2015-03-14, I guess) Leo and I wrote a Pi estimator in HopScotch using the method of shotgunning a circle inscribed in a square. So today we were writing something else in HopScotch and noticed that our Pi program got a huge number of views and loves (hearts).

Check it out (I added the purple arrow — the triangle is the number of views/runs):


You can run the program yourself it you have HopScotch for iPad/iPhone. (Which is a terrific kids’ programming platform!) [In the previous post, I noted that the circle was off-center. This is a revised version where we fixed that problem.]

[Update: 2016-11-27: Current ❤ count = 816 & runs = 22748!]
