Sniff is a "Scratch-like" programming language that's designed to help Scratchers move gently from Scratch to more conventional languages. They can start writing programs, without having to learn a new language because Sniff is based on Scratch. They learn a little more about variables, compiling, syntax errors (!), and they can have fun controlling real hardware while they're doing it.

Release 13 - for Xmas projects!

Release 13 is now available for download from the downloads page!

It includes some minor tweaks and fixes. It also includes source for the BU Xmas tree project.

It also includes support for WS2801 type neoPixels which use data and clock pins. There are some great devices out there that use this type that are perfect for xmas decorations. If you're using ws2811 type, then you'll now need to create them using:

make neoPixel ws2811 device 2

The code should then work as before.
