Getting Scratch Link on chromebook for microbits?

Has anyone found a solution to using the microbit extension on a chromebook? I can't download Scratch Link on Chrome OS.

You can only download Scratch (Any version, I believe) on Windows or Mac. I also use a Chromebook and ran into the same problem.

Getting Scratch Link on chromebook for microbits?

I have been using S2Bot (Chrome app) and using Scratchx.org to use Lego WeDo 2.0 with Scratch on Chromebooks. It is a bit of a chore to connect at times but once you get the order down it works pretty flawlessly.

I just looked to see and micro:bit is on the list of the S2Bot app. Hope this helps as a workaround.

Seriously? I waited 5 months for Lego BOOST to be available on Scratch, and now I can't use it because I'm on a Chromebook? Really ST? It's not that hard to make a chrome app or extension! Even I've done it before! The Scratch Team should really start working on Scratch for Chromebooks. Just copy and paste the HTML! Not hard!

Calm down, a Chromebook isn't the best software for doing coding anyways. It bums me too but luckily I have a Mac downstairs, but my sister is always hogging it so that doesn't always work out.

K first of all thats not how html works
Windows has a specific dev for everything that makkes it loook like windows
Chrome OS is a lot different u need to change all the devs and still check for code that might not work on a chromebook after all. This is stuff that would take more than 4 gb ram or things that the chromebook just cant run
