python application

roberto-3
hello, this is a somehow strange request:
a long time ago, a python developer wrote me saying he wrote a nice
application in python which was also able to let the user snap
together graphical blocks and at the same time it lets the user see
the corresponding code, without even writing it;

maybe something similar to turtle art but i am sure it was not that one !

if anyone (or the developer itself) knows something about it, please
let me know ?

thank you
ps: if you're thinking why i am not searching in my inbox, the answer
is you're right but i didn't find the mail again :) among tens of
thousands of other messages, sorry !

You're not talking about MIT Scratch are you?

It fits your description to some extent.

PataPata by Paul Fernhout comes to mind, though it's hard to believe
it was so long ago.

Re: python application

roberto-3
thank you
i am sure it is not in the list you gave me

actually, it is something very similar to turtle art (but it is not that one):
you create a program using blocks and, at the same time, the whole
application creates the underlying python code that creates the blocks
(but of course the visual code made by blocks does something different
from the code automatically generated )

BTW, does TA this job ?

have a nice day
