SKIP

SKIP - a Python Scratch Interpreter based on Kurt.

Status

Experimental.

Most of the 1.4 blocks are implemented, except for:

  • text-related: "say", "ask", variable/list watchers
  • sounds & instruments
  • graphic effects other than "ghost"

Installation

SKIP requires Pygame for graphics.

With a proper python environment (one which has pip available), simply run:

$ pip install skip

Which will download SKIP and its dependencies.

Alternatively, download the compressed archive from PyPI, extract it, and inside it run:

$ python setup.py install

Usage

Run it from Terminal, passsing the path to a Scratch file:

$ python skip/pygame_screen.py game.sb

A graphics window will open showing the stage. You can type scripts into the terminal window to execute them while the project is running.

It also includes a simple console interface. Example usage:

$ python skip/console_screen.py
Ctrl+D or `;` to evaluate input
Extra commands: start, stop
=>Sprite1
-----
ask "What's your name?" and wait
say join "Hello, " join answer "!"
;
...
Sprite1 asks: What's your name?
? blob
Sprite1: say u'Hello, blob!'
-----

Dev

All of the graphics-related stuff is in a separate file, pygame_screen.py, so it should be possible to implement the interpreter for other graphics libraries (e.g. wxPython).
