    @bjmdarken This is an experiment I did to see how Scratch could work Javascript/HTML, inside your browser.

    However I do want to point out a few things. While JS/HTML is more cross-platform than just about anything else, it is very unlikely that a rich web application like Scratch would work on the iPhone or iPad unless specifically engineered to do so, since their javascript engines are heartbreakingly slow. Using flash would ensure that S2.0 would work identically across all platforms that support it. …long comment, need forum topic!

    Fullmoon from Scratch here. I love your demo, and I agree that more thought definitely needs to be put into the choice of platform for Scratch 2.0. In fact, I built something quite similar to this in AS3 a while ago (it’s not nearly as polished). One major problem I have with the choice of Flash is that it would make it very hard to write an external interface block that would let you write your own features. Since AS3 is compiled, not interpreted, Javascript might be a better choice.

    What are your plans for this? Are you going to create an open source project around it? I totally agree on the open platform, open source angle. I really like MIT Scratch but I really don’t like their licensing or platform choices.

    I agree with chalkmarrow, btw, brilliant job on the drag and drop interface! JavaScript would be the way to go, I think.

    Ah, I saw these on Twitter and replied there. I’d like to talk to you about Scratch 2.0. Are you on chat?

    Thanks 🙂 Do you know if there are already plans about how Scratch 2.0 will be made? Flash, like this – just html and javascript, or something else?

    Thanks ^^ The blocks are actually just rectangles, with border and background colors copied from Scratch, with some corner rounding… The hat and the green flag is the only image used – the rest are basic html elements with borders etc… That’s why the ‘connector’ between blocks is missing – it’s not rectangle…
