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 21: Back to School

Release 21 is now live!

This contains a number of new devices, and improvements to some old ones. In particular we can generate G-Code to drive a laser cutter directly from Sniff. We'll be talking about that in the next few days, along with posts detailing each of the new features, but for now here's the highlights list:
  • GCode CNC support
  • SVG Support
  • Joysticks
  • Improved Compass Support (including MAG3110)
  • Improved editing in SniffPad
  • Load Cell support
Check the downloads page to grab Sniff21 for your system.
