Self-hosted Blockly for PiStorms

pistorms-blocklyThe fine folks at Mindsensors have done something pretty cool! You’ve probably heard of Blockly, a very popular graphical programming language. In most cases, you had to run it on a remote website or on your own computer and download whatever code you created to your robot. Well, with the PiStorms you no longer have to! Because it’s based on the very powerful Raspberry Pi, the Blockly can be run on the robot itself! All you need is a tablet, phone, or if you really want to, your PC, and start programming away! Just connect to your Raspberry Pi over your home network and Bob’s your uncle.
