How do I program the ZOOM:BIT?
Can I use MakeCode Editor offline?
Yes, you can.
"MakeCode is an HTML5 web application that’s automatically cached locally (saved to your computer or device) when first viewed in your browser. After the web app has loaded you will have everything you need to continue working without an internet connection. If you decide to add an extension, it’s possible that you’ll again need to connect to the internet to allow the code in the new extension to compile." - Source: https://makecode.microbit.org/offline.
