Scratch 3 and Scratch-Link for Pi

Thu Jul 11, 2019 8:24 am

When will there be an offline version of Scratch 3 with Scratch-Link to allow BBC Microbits to be used as peripherals to Scratch programs?

If you have the option it would be preferable to build Scratch-Link support into the Raspberry Pi version.

It would also be helpful if you extend the functionality to include tthe ability to perform both analogue_write and digital_write to microbit Pins.

This would open up the universe of robotics devices programmed in Scratch on the Pi controlling a Microbit based robot using BlueTooth Low Energy.

Scratch is not a software product developed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation so you would be best off directing your question to the actual developers -
