Blockly is a web-based visual programming editor. Users can drag blocks together to build programs. All code is free and open source.
The blog will be used to:
Share new updates & features of the programming language
Share new apps that have been developed using Blockly
Provide tutorials on how to use Blockly
Introduce new users to Blockly
Google Blockly Programming Language is an easy-to-use programming language that is used by many people all around the world. In this blog, you will find a lot of useful information about blockly and how to use it.
Google Blockly is a web-based, graphical programming language. It is mostly used by programmers and developers to create games, web applications and other online tools.
In the next posts, we will talk more about Google Blockly, how to use it and what are the most common mistakes when using it.
We hope you will enjoy reading our blog and that you will learn a lot from it!
It is a project of Google and is open source under the Apache License 2.0. Blockly features a graphical programming interface that allows users to create graphical “blocks” representing commands and arrange them in a way that can be interpreted as code.
I’ve been working with Google Blockly lately and figured I’d write up a couple of posts on how to use it. I’m going to assume you already have a web page setup and are ready to go. If not, grab the starter project from GitHub.
First thing is first, add the blockly_compressed.js and blockly_uncompressed.js scripts to your page. These can be found in the blockly download you’ll get from the downloads page. Then, you’ll need to create an HTML div that will contain the editor. Add an empty div, give it an id and make sure it’s visible on your page:
I was first introduced to the Google Blockly project when I came across the Block Factory in 2013, while trying to find a way to make programming more accessible to students.
I had been teaching introductory programming concepts using Python, but found it hard to get students engaged, as they spent more time trying to figure out how to write Python statements than focusing on the programming concepts I was trying to teach. And then there were those who had never programmed before, and for whom text-based programming was too daunting.
