Platforms

Download the Edbot Software for your platforms using the links below.

The software is cross-platform compatible. For example you can run in client mode on a Raspberry Pi and connect to a server running on Windows. Please ensure you run the same version of software on all computers on your network.

Windows

The Edbot Software runs on Microsoft Windows Vista/7/8/8.1/10 and is provided as a standard signed installer.

To install the software, double click the installer and follow the on-screen instructions.

Download the following installer to add the Edbot block language translations to Scratch 2.0 offline. The same installer works for 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows.

You'll need to install this on every computer running Scratch 2.0 offline and you’ll need to re-install if you upgrade your version of Scratch. We currently offer translations for Dutch, Spanish, Hungarian and Lithuanian with more languages on the way.

Mac OS X

The Edbot Software is available on Mac OS X 10.7 and upwards and is packaged as a DMG file.

To install the software, double click the downloaded DMG file and accept the EULA to mount the image. Drag the Edbot Software icon to the Applications shortcut provided in the Edbot Software Setup window. When that's done type ⌘E to close the Edbot Software Setup window and eject the image.

Raspbian

You'll need to be running Raspbian Stretch with Desktop or the earlier Raspbian Jessie with Pixel. We recommend a Raspberry Pi 3 for satisfactory performance. The Edbot Software is packaged as a self-extracting archive.

To install the software, run a terminal window and type:

sudo sh ~/Downloads/edbot_raspbian.bin

Some users have reported issues with Bluetooth on Pi. Please refer to this blog post for help.
