kurt 2.0.7

Library for reading/writing MIT's Scratch file format.

# kurt

Kurt is a Python library for working with Scratch project files.

It supports both Scratch 1.4 and Scratch 2.0 with a single Pythonic interface, and it's extensible to support new file formats for Scratch mods (such as [Snap!](http://snap.berkeley.edu/))

It also includes a parser for converting plain text into Scratch blocks.

Example uses:

* converting Scratch 2.0 projects back to 1.4
* importing thousands of images into Scratch
* importing midi files as play note blocks
* importing font files as costumes
* parsing text to Scratch blocks
* analysing projects

*[Scratch](http://scratch.mit.edu/) is created by the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab.*
