This article explains how to make extensions for Scratch 3.0.
| Note: ||This article will make an edit conflict with Ken's.However, to translate the Japanese version, let me keep it here.|
To run Scratch 3.0, Node.js Version 8 with npm is needed. No other versions will work correctly. Having git is also useful when getting the content from the repositories on GitHub, but not required. An IDE can be used for coding smoothly, but it's optional.
Make a directory and go there with your terminal (command prompt on Windows). try this with git:
$ git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/llk/scratch-vm.git
$ git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/llk/scratch-gui.git
| Note: ||$ should not be typed.|
| Note: ||This can be done without git; Instead download zip-compressed files via GitHub.|
| Caution: ||If npm, especially |
npm link, have been used before, it's highly recommended to rename the node_modules folder placed at the place shown with
npm bin -g to something else. This is because the script below may use other versions of the node packages there.
$ cd scratch-vm
$ npm i
$ npm link
$ cd ..\scratch-gui
$ npm i
$ npm link scratch-vm
Make icons used for some places, such as libraries or block categories. There are four types of the pictures that will be used:
- For library, bigger one: png, 600x372px
- For library, smaller one: png or svg, 80x80px
- For block category, svg, 40x40px
- For block icon, svg, 40x40px
