Welcome to the Developing Scratch Extensions Forum!

This is a forum where extension developers can ask and answer questions about the development of Scratch Extensions.

Scratch Extensions make it possible to connect Scratch projects with external hardware (such as LEGO WeDo or PicoBoard) or sources of information on the web. They add a collection of command and reporter blocks that can be used to interact with a particular device or data source. When an extension is enabled, its blocks appear in the “More Blocks” palette. For more information, see the Scratch Wiki.

Extensions Documentation and Sample code:

Extensions Distribution site:

Ooh, something's interesting to do with my life. And a reason to learn JavaScript and use github.
Can't wait to see some awesome extensions. I always wondered about the empty extensions palette.

YEEEAAH!! Great news! A brand new fun coding project for my life! I'm going to start learning extensions TODAY!
Edit: According to the documentation, Scratch Extensions are easier than Firefox Extensions.. Let's see about that! I'm going to try to put my knowledge to USE!

What's the point of creating a gh-pages branch and leaving the master branch empty? EDIT: <–github noob alert

Because gh-pages creates a github pages url which you need for ScratchX.

Also, I'm slightly perturbed that this all about online javascript extensions and their is no mention of http offline extensions.

Can I suggest this section is renamed and an offline one created as well please?

Unfortunately, the offline HTTP extension mechanism is being deprecated. Not sure of a time frame for that though.

You should update the “Extensions Documentation and Sample code” link paddle

Welcome to the Developing Scratch Extensions Forum!

I am new to ScratchX and I have a couple of basic questions.
  • In general for the extensions that communicate with an external processor, how is that accomplished or where can I find the documentation?
  • Specifically for the Arduino, how does Scratch identify the com port (on windows) to use and what is the protocol is used ?
  • Every time I load a project that I saved when connected to the Arduino extension, ScratchX disconnects from the Arduino? If I restart ScratchX, I get reconnected but I still cannot load a project without disconnecting again.
  • Is there a way to reconnect with the Arduino using a block once it has been disconnected?

Thanks

Do the Scratch Community Guidelines apply to .sbx projects? I would expect so, especially if the project is linked to from Scratch.
