NetsBlox has been updated to version 1.8.0. Most notably this includes:
In projects using multiple roles, "Save" has been replaced with "Save Role" to make it clear that it only saves the current role that you are editing (any other users on different roles will not be automatically saved).
Added historical stock price information to IEXTrading service
Miscellaneous bug fixes and improvements

i think i may have found a way to emulate snap projects within snap projects! the only thing i need is a way to not limit sprite count, rename the sprite, and get the x y as if 0, 0 was from a different coordinate. ike, not the middle of the stage.
this is what i am thinking...
(try and mentally parse this into a list)
my keyboard is going crazy! i am already tired also.
oh and @brian i found a way to make the server secure..........(besides something that must stay unsaid!) YES i put a name email and what not feilds, but noone is even going to use them probobly!
last thing, i am calling this "NetOS" bc i cant bother to share this on the snap forum, and bc netsblox allows me to do more!
Note: i need collaborators. and IT IS NOT FINISHED!
We don't currently have any metrics about the uptime but uptime hasn't been an issue when we have used it in classes at Vanderbilt or any of our studies/summer camps.
NetsBlox is a fork of Snap! with its own backend support (message routing and such requires more backend support). If you are interested, the client code is available at https://github.com/NetsBlox/Snap--Build-Your-Own-Blocks and the rest is at https://github.com/NetsBlox/NetsBlox.
There currently isn't a plan for a text-based equivalent. The codification features should be supported in NetsBlox since it is an extension of Snap!. However, we have been considering other platforms for deployment of NetsBlox projects (such as robotics platforms).
If you decide that NetsBlox might be a good fit for your class and have any more questions feel free to either post them here or just email us directly! Although this platform is convenient, I respond faster to email :)
