Notes

  • Tested in Moodle 1.9.7 and 2.0.2.
  • No javascript, no database access - very simple!
  • The ScratchApplet Java applet must be in the same domain as the Scratch project.
  • Filter syntax is case-insensitive.
  • The plug-in is internationalized in Moodle 1.9 and 2.
  • If there is demand I'll look at embedding locally hosted Scratch projects (.sb files).
  • Similarly, I may look at an alternative filter syntax.
  • Consider config. switch for new Flash player, http://scratch.mit.edu/forums/viewtopic.php?id=57153
