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)
- 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
and then press Green Flag
You can now use PyonKee on your IPad as if you were using ScratchGPIO on your Pi 🙂
This is fantastic,

please be aware if you have updated to iOS8 – PYonkee is NOT compatible 🙁 New version coming out soon according to MIT labs – we hope !!
Pyonkee 1.7 is out! It works fine on iOS 8.
BTW, Pyonkee is developed by SoftUmeYa under the Scratch Source Code License from MIT. Scratch Team is not involved in this app. So please do not ask them about it.
We discuss about Pyonkee at the following forum.
you managed to control motors yet Si ??
Yep-I’ll find the vine
Yep – enable remote sensor connections on Pyonkee and find out Ipads IP address
on a Pi – don’t run ScratchGPIO – reboot and run LX terminal
if using ScratchGPIO5 then
sudo python scratch_gpiohandler5.py 184.108.40.206
where 220.127.116.11 is Ipad IP address
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
ImportError: No module named smbus
I presume you mean ‘VanillaScratch’ NOT ScratchGPIO on 2nd Instance ????
Yep – ta for error – what line number – just take a pic of screen and send it to me please
Yes, vanilla scratch when running hand let program manually
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 😛
