Auto-Generate JavaScript from Blockly

Posted on
  • Hi,

    One feature that I miss from BlocklyDuino in switching to Espruino is the ability to auto-generate code using Blockly. It's useful in teaching programming (and debugging) to toggle between the Blockly screen and the code screen (JavaScript in Espruino, Arduino in BlocklyDuino), and see the updated code from the Blockly changes.
    Is it asking a lot to see this in a future update of the Espruino Chrome Extension?


  • There could definitely be an option in the settings screen added for doing this... Could you add an 'issue' for it in:¬≠DE/issues ?

    Perhaps someone else could contribute this - I have my hands full at the moment, but it shouldn't be a big change.

  • Thanks, I submitted an issue.

  • Was this ever added? It would be very useful for teaching!

  • Yes, it's the very first item in the settings menu :)
