I am running a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B

I have Scratch 2 installed and would like to copy the program over to my laptop so I work with Scratch offline. I have the SD card and the Micro SD card to transfer from the Pi to the laptop, is it possible to transfer the Scratch program over using this method?

I know that there is an option to download Scratch but I was wondering if it could be copied across without the nead to download it?


I have found the Scratch 2.0 Offline Editor on the website i assume that's what you want. https://scratch.mit.edu/download

  • I was wondering if there was a way of copying that across so I don't have to download it or is that not possible? – Jake Symons Dec 20 '17 at 19:52
  • Thats not possible unless you laptop is linux but I'm still not sure if you could do it. – rtm516 Dec 20 '17 at 19:53
  • no its not Linux, I assume that the Scratch on Pi is Linux then and doesn't work with windows 10. Thanks for the help, I'll download it directly from Scratch – Jake Symons Dec 20 '17 at 19:58
  • For posterity, I don't think it could be transferred across to the PC even if it were using Linux. At a glance, I think scratch is implemented using a form of smalltalk, which itself is implemented in C, meaning the machine code binaries are ISA specific. Contemporary PC's pretty much as a rule use x86(-64) processors whereas the Pis, like most contemporary mobile and embedded devices, use ARM based processors. – goldilocks Dec 21 '17 at 13:10
