Article size

This article is starting to have some length to it. Would it be time, or in the near future, to expand it into a few articles, as with Scratch File Format?

Hmm, possibly. Right now it's acceptable - but much longer and it should definitely be split up.

Actually, I'm going to disagree. This article isn't too long (see Squeak Tutorial). The 1.4 format, however, was much more complex and needed many pages for specific sub-topics like morphs.

I wasn't saying just yet. But there is more research that can be done on it. After that, we'll see how it could be split.

Yeah, once 2.0 is released I'm sure there will be lots more information.
Hardmath123 (talk | contribs) 13:46, 12 July 2012 (UTC)
The old format was a lot easier to separate into different areas because of all the different structures. Then again, some of the articles were quite short — take Inline Values, for instance. I don't know if that's necessary here.

I just rewrote and expanded the article a lot, and it's now the longest article on the wiki. Do you think we should split it up?

It would be a shame to spoil such a good read by doing that... :P As the canonical format reference, I think it's easier to refer to with it all on one page. Though maybe the table of block selectors could be moved to a subpage?
Blob8108 (talk | contribs) 09:57, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
Or something nice like List of Block Selectors.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 10:01, 2 July 2013 (UTC)
I just thought about collapsing the list of block selectors in this article. But maybe a new page for a list would work. The only problem with my idea of collapsing is that I don't know the style or whatever for it! DX

Python or JS

@Hardmath: Why not use the JavaScript JSON module? After all, JSON is based on JS objects, and doesn't require Python to be installed.

It's a thought — but I feel for some reason that people are more likely to use Python to do this kind of thing. Certainly Python should be easier to follow for beginners.
@Hardmath: What are you using Python to demonstrate? Also, the Python module is called "json", not "JSON"... ;)

Well, since I've unearthed so much of it for snapin8r, I figured I'd explain how to download and mess with project data. :)

P.S. Python uses JSON-ish stuff for object/list literals, too.

Media

Can assets only be png/svg/wav extensions? Are all other files, such as JPG or MP3, converted to PNG or WAV?
Blob8108 (talk | contribs) 12:10, 27 April 2013 (UTC)

I think so. It might be that that's just the extension, but the actual MIME is the original.

Obsolete block selectors?

Should we move any block selectors that don't have blocks in the palette anymore (such as fxTest) to a subpage or something?
Mathfreak231 (talk | contribs) 13:35, 29 September 2013 (UTC)

Why? It's still useful info for anyone making a parser.
Scimonster (talk | contribs) 13:38, 29 September 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, but I just downloaded the json from this project, and adding so many block selectors would take away from the article. A subpage would still work if they wanted any obsolete blocks.

Bump.
Mathfreak231 (talk | contribs) 19:52, 23 November 2013 (UTC)
I vote leave out the one's that don't validate in the validator.
blob8108 (talk | contribs) 21:49, 23 November 2013 (UTC)
What about an expanding sublist that's by default hidden?
veggieman001 (talk | contribs) 23:55, 23 November 2013 (UTC)
If anyone can take care of that, cool.

About the (projects != cdn) mistake

I accidentally copied and pasted the projects.scratch.mit.edu url without changing it to projects. Oops.
