A Python bridge between the MAplin Robotic Arm and ScratcH (pyMarash)

This is an extension for the off-line version of Scratch, developed in one hour so very likely to be buggy etc. I have tested it with Scratch 2.0 on a MacBook running Mac OS X 10.11, it should run without problems on a Linux, including a Raspberry Pi.

Quick installation instructions:

  • Install pyUSB with pip install --pre pyusb
  • Install libusb (I have used Homebrew, with brew install libusb)
  • Launch with python pymarash_http_server.py
  • Start Scratch, while pressing the SHIFT key click on File, select Import experimental HTTP Extension, browse to the location of the file ScratchArm.json and select it.
