Chirp is a Scratch modification made by Jens, who was at the time a member of the Scratch Team. It was the precursor to Snap! and adds a number of new features to Scratch, while remaining fully compatible. The default sprite is called "cat2" in the original Scratch program.
The initial version of Chirp was released in February of 2008; it is one of the earliest Scratch modifications.
- Export/import scripts as XML
- Changing blocks through the context menu
- The dynamic addition of scrollbars in various places
- The ability to resize the scripting area
- Running projects directly into presentation mode
- The ability to use your own projects as screensavers
Jens also made a program named Scratch2Exe that produces standalone Windows programs from Scratch projects.
