Scratch offline for Chromebooks

Can we make one for chromebooks? (On Scratch 3.0) The reason why I suggest this is because Scratch 3.0 will be written in HTML 5

Isn't Scratch allowed in Chromebooks already?

No play the dinosaur game offline

I think Scratch is already on chromebooks and I think they'll continue to stay on chromebooks

It works online but there is no Scratch 2.0 offline editor. When I travel I bring my Chromebook and would love to use Scratch on the plane but I can't because there is no offline version.

I use Scratch on my Chromebook (now, in fact), but I use it online, on Google Chrome, as I can't download anything (school chromebooks). I would like this feature if it could be for when you have no internet. Support!

im not that interesting. check out this interesting map though: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/213886773/

the problem with making a Scratch 2.0 offline editor is that Scratch 2.0 is written in Flash/ActionScript, So that is very hard to do with Chromebooks, due to the dying Flash support.

I think you can download the SWF of Scratch and somehow embed it into your own webpage

ah yes what a wholesome alternative to scratch

before trying to answer this question, we have to break it down a bit. here's how chromebooks work: the only actual application you can access on the laptop is chrome*. basically, it runs on the internet–however, the other quote unquote “applications” are chrome extensions. these can be used online because they're html that's not published to a website. a scratch 3.0 extension would be quite possible because scratch 3.0 is html-based. this implies that the html can be attached to an extension and thus be used offline on a chromebook. so with 3.0, it is quite possible to do on a chromebook.

2.0 could probably work. packaging an swf into an html page is something that people do already on tons of websites including scratch itself–if you can run those sites within chrome, then i see no reason why one can't do the same thing with their own swf file.

1.x and below would be a bit ridiculous to pull off, but i guess you could technically package SqueakJS into a web browser and have the .image file ready in your storage.

*you have internal storage as well, but downloading an executable for example wouldn't work because there's nothing to open it with.

those are my thoughts.

Support. ChromeOS isn't my main OS, but I do use it on my secondary laptop for school work.

Online websites can work offline, by the way. They can cache necessary files using web technologies such as the application cache (deprecated, but well supported) or service workers (only works on Chrome and Firefox atm)
