Scratch 1.4 (offline only)

  • Mac OS X – Compatible with Mac OS X 10.4 to macOS 10.14.6
  • Windows – Compatible with Windows 2000 or later.
  • Debian/Ubuntu/Linux Mint – Compatible with Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) or later.

Scratch 1.4 can be downloaded here.

Scratch 2.0


  • Mac OS X — a Mac with an Intel processor
  • Windows XP or later
  • GNU/Linux — Fedora 13, Ubuntu 10.10, or openSUSE 11.3 or later
  • Requires Adobe AIR

The Scratch 2.0 Offline Editor can be downloaded at scratch:download/scratch2.[note 1] For macOS 10.10 and later or Windows 7 and later, the latest version of Adobe AIR may be downloaded here. For GNU/Linux and older operating systems, the AIR 2.6 runtime may be downloaded here. In the latter case, you must download the "Mac OS 10.5 & Older" version of Scratch.


There is also an online version of Scratch 2.0, which is compatible with all devices that support Flash Player 10.2 or later.[1] A test to see whether a device has Flash properly installed is available here.

Until the release of Scratch 3.0, the online 2.0 editor could be found at projects:editor. This is no longer the case, but ScratchX, which is very similar to Scratch 2.0, or s2online, an unofficial version of Scratch 2.0, may be used instead.

Scratch 3.0


  • macOS (OS X) 10.10 or later
  • Windows 10 or later[note 2]

Scratch Desktop can be downloaded at scratch:download.


Because it is written in HTML5 and JavaScript, Scratch 3.0 runs on most recent web browsers. The following are officially supported:[2]

  • Chrome 63+ or Mobile Chrome 63+
  • Edge 15+
  • Firefox 57+
  • Safari 11+ or Mobile Safari 11+
