|Description||A simple extension for rendering Scratch blocks.|
|Author(s)||apple502j and Kenny2github|
|Example||https://scratchblocks.github.io - A sample page for experimenting with the Scratchblocks syntax.|
ScratchBlocks is an extension to display Scratch, a programming language created by MIT, in wiki blocks.
- Download and place the file(s) in a directory called
- Add the following code at the bottom of your LocalSettings.php:
wfLoadExtension( 'ScratchBlocks' );
- Configure languages if needed.
- Done – Navigate to Special:Version on your wiki to verify that the extension is successfully installed.
By default, only English Scratch blocks are rendered. Add more languages like so:
$wgScratchBlocks4Langs = ['ja', 'zh_TW'];
Note that the TW is preceded by an underscore, not a hyphen. This variable is accessible through JS
There are two ways to create a snippet of Scratch blocks, which are nearly identical.
- Use <scratchblocks> before and after your code to create a block level element displaying Scratch code.
- To create an inline-block element (that will show in the middle of the paragraph), enclose the code in <sb> tags.
<scratchblocks> repeat (5) move (10) steps end say [Done!] </scratchblocks>
You can repeat Scratch code in a <sb>forever</sb> loop!
Both tags take a
version attribute, whose default value is 3. If specified as 2, the tag will render its blocks in Scratch 2.0 style.
