Scratch on Ipad – Pyonkee

We now have a Scratch clone for the IPad called Pyonkee 

This is great news at last as a lot of young Scratchers only have IPads nowadays and not desktop/laptop computers at home

How to control your Pi Robot or AddOn Board using Pyonkee (Scratch clone for IPad)

On Ipad:

  • Find out the Ip address of your IPad (its in wifi info button) = lets assume 192.168.0.5
  • Run Pyonkee
  • Select sensing blocks
  • Press and hold down last block labelled sensor button pressed until enable remote sensor connections comes up and then click on that to enable it
    (this can be a bit tricky to do but once successful you should see Remote Sensor connections enabled message)

On your Pi:

Run ScratchGPIO and make a little script

pyon

and then press Green Flag

You can now use PyonKee on your IPad as if you were using ScratchGPIO on your Pi 🙂

    please be aware if you have updated to iOS8 – PYonkee is NOT compatible 🙁 New version coming out soon according to MIT labs – we hope !!

    Works fine now had trouble with iOS 8 on iPad Mini , clean install iOS 8.1β yesterday , reinstall Pyonkee from ‘Scratch’ (moohhahahahahaa), works like a dream now 😛

    Sorry put this in the wrong thread at first:

    Don’t know what or if I am doing anything wrong – but can NOT get sGPIO6 to run with the RTK-003 board – also tried the ‘broadcast’ method for Pyonkee – but NoGo with sGPIO6 ; tested on both B and B+

    Used these comands to install GPIO6:

    wget http://git.io/nFwadg -O isgh6alpha.sh

    sudo bash isgh6alpha.sh

      Can you reboot, run LX terminal. CD opt/scratchgpioalpha6
      Sudo python scratchgpio_handler6.py
      And see if any major error reported
      Then run normal Scratch and load your script and go back to terminal and see what error is occurring please

    1st instance;

    ImportError: No module named smbus

    I presume you mean ‘VanillaScratch’ NOT ScratchGPIO on 2nd Instance ????

  7. @jarjargeek says:

    Yuuupp smbus either not there or corrupted, re-installed python smbus, rebooted; sGPIO6+ now working direct and the handler script + Pyonkee works as well – thanks for your help 😛
