# A Snap! Mod Idea (Part 1)

Oh. See if quotes help.

Oh. It works. Thanks!

So, you're saying this happens when you enter dev mode and change the code?

I've actually never used dev mode to change the code -- how does that work?

But anyway, the thing to do is edit the source in a text editor. If necessary, copy and paste code from the running version.

The bug I made a topic about? No, It's just in general; when I open snap.html in my offline copy, it has that bug.

(Consider all further instances of "right-click" having an implicit " or ctrl-click")
I used the right-click menus. I wasn't really changing the code, just moving Morphs around, resizing them, and, for the textbox, using the WorldMorph right-click menu to make two demo Morphs, a ScrollFrameMorph (with a FrameMorph child) and a TextMorph.

What good will this Mod do?

If you didn't have "good" in your post, I would reply with this:

but, as you did have "good" in your post, I'm replying with this:

You would mean rewriting all of Snap!(Except for morphic.js as Jens made a version for python) in python.

Woah, reply count blasting of like a rocket.

Yes.

Well, are we porting it to python or not?

I have to make it in JS first.

Edit: Which might be easier than porting it to Python. I think I can just fork jmoenig/Snap.

Edit 2: https://github.com/jmoenig/morphic.py has no LICENSE file. But, the text I copied above technically gives the license, just not the name of it.

Oh I didn't expect a reply that looked like this but whatever

Ok.

Edit: (I thought you were sir_kitten2, but no.

is sir_kitten2's pfp)

Snap! is technically Python but with blocks.

The "say" block is like the "print" command.
The "pen" blocks are like the "turtle" library.

The list goes on and on. My point is, that Snap! is so similar to Python, it's kind of useless to make a Snap! Python type mod.

import re
re.match(r"\d*", "928342n3y923y59837nyvt8").group(1) ==  "928342"


3 print("Hi.") =

Hi.
Hi.
Hi.


and many, many more.

Plus, I want to make pyblocks a Snap!-like interface to Python.
