Scratux is a block-based visual programming language targeted primarily at children. Users can create projects using a block-like interface. With Scratux, you can program your own interactive stories, games, and animations — and share your creations with others in the online community.

Basically Scratux is a simple project that aims to provide Free/Libre Open Source Linux binaries of Scratch Desktop (previously called the Scratch Offline editor). So consider it as the unofficial Scratch for Linux ;)

Since the official Scratch project does not provide binaries for Linux distributions, we created this project so you do not have to download + build from source. Just click and install it.

Scratux is built-in different languages and is always based on the latest stable Scratch release. (Currently Scratch 3.5.1)

Enable snaps on Red Hat Enterprise Linux and install Scratux

Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.

Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.

Enable snapd

Snap is available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7, from the 7.6 release onward, from the Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) repository.

The EPEL repository can be added to your system with the following command:

Adding the optional and extras repositories is also recommended:

sudo subscription-manager repos --enable "rhel-*-optional-rpms" --enable "rhel-*-extras-rpms" sudo yum update

Snap can now be installed as follows:
